Mirror mirror on the car... The mirrors that are provided in this kit don't really resemble the mirrors on the Inspector's car. Actually, I wonder how Tamiya decided which type of mirror to include in this kit. Because looking through the original car's brochure I can't help but notice the absence of any kind of mirror in all of the pictures and drawings. I find it hard to believe that the car would leave the factory without any rear-view mirrors. But apparently it did... And when mirrors were finally mounted on the cars (by the owner or by Jaguar, I don't know), they were mounted all over the front of the car. Some were mounted close to the driver. Others were mounted almost at the front of the hood. Pick one : Luckily I had a few nice pictures (images from an episode) depicting the shape and position of the mirrors on Inspector Morse's car. Sadly I thought I'd have to scratch-build the mirrors... Not my strongest point I'm afraid
