Looks much better Bob, not sure if you just like the full canopy, but it originally came with a half shield.

It's a Veco/Dumas Scout Duke, slightly modified by a previous owner to accept an Enya .06 engine. He pushed the firewall back some and placed a fuel tamk amidships right over the CG.

Yes. Ron, I have cut out a couple of wind screens for it, but found the enclosed canopy among my stuff and thought I would give it a try. I may use it, may not.

The canopy looks good Bob, just didn't know if you were going for originality.

That 'Scout' is looking good! Miatas are the closest thing to what a British sports car was supposed to be! lol! I have a '58 MGA that I've been working on and off for many years. I'm currently finishing a '57 VW Bug!

Scratch a modeler and you find a car enthusiast. Some of my old rides.





My VW was a 63 Ron, a couple of years before they went to the single chrome bumper in 1965. Had a 1500 and 1600 MGA. My son had two Spitfires, I think he made one good one out of the pair. The AH Sprite was a favorite.

All gone now, down to the single Miata. I could have bought three Miata's like that one for what I got for the MGB-LE. Difference is 27K miles for the B, 127K miles for the Miata. But the Miata drives better, doesn't leak oil and does not diesel on shutdown.

Greg, you have absorbed a lot of information in your 13 years.
