I was on the HLJ site checking to see if the long over due Ebbro 1/20 scale 1966 F2 Brabham had finally been released, as they have the date as Sept. Still not out. So I cruised through about 20 pages, and then I saw that Aoshima is coming out this Dec with a 1968 MG-B.

I've been praying that eventually some one would do one. I owned a 1967 MG-B which I modified into a time trial car with about as many engine & suspension upgrades and Mods as I could get away with on the street.

there is very few actual differences between the two years, so I'm going to build two, one as my time trial car, and one as she was as street machine. I just can't wait.

I know you were since long looking for one! Finally you've got your shot! I cannot wait to see the blog. As you're a former owner and an exquisite modeler, the result can be but one: fabulous!

Cheers!
