Re: Finished: Austin Healey Sprite MKI AKA the bugeye

Very nice - I'm extremely impressed! Saw the pic in your sig & did a quick search for the tread

Must get around to building mine - one will be stock, & the 2nd will probably be modified to become a Mk2 Sprite (basically MG Midget front & rear panels on a frogeye centre section & interior) to match my full size one.

Not sure what to do with the 3rd, a HiTech one, as in many ways, it's not as good as the normal one, especially the wheels & hubcaps, but it does have much better bumper irons. Unfortunately, the HiTech doesn't have an engine, but if I want to make one of them with an opening bonnet, a 1:24 tamiya mini could donate the top half / carbs etc, but it will require a new sump / gearbox....
