I finally got this one finished up, this is a reissue of the Revell Jaguar, this kit was the Austin Powers Shaguar kit, I almost did do this one with the union Jack paint scheme, but decided a dark green was more fitting. Paint is Model Master Emerald Green Metallic lacquer . I have to say this is a very ill fitting kit, or I am not really good at building models , I wanted to just get it finished, and in my rushing, I manage to get super glue on the windscreen

Johnathon. You can get some superglue ungluer. It will remove any sign of CA glue on anything. CA glue is just amazing. There's a ZIP KICKER that will instantly set it and the undoer that will remove any messes. I make plenty of messes with that stuff and I don't even build models!
Make sure that super glue ungluer isn't something nasty like acetone. Most stuff that will break super glue will dissolve styrene. If you can get the windshield loose and soak it in water for near forever, super glue is ever so slightly water soluble.

Jonathan, I have previously built the same car in the same color scheme. I share your frustrations with the parts fit. As I recall, the major problem was fitting the top of the body to the bottom. Also, the convertible boot is oddly shaped. Your build turned out very nice. Great job. Bernie
