As a Brit who's dad had three of these E Types
I can confirm these Century 1/43's are by far the best rendition of the Mk I. They seem to be a particularly difficult shape to get right, probably the graceful curves. If there is one tiny criticism of the Century it is that the hole in the snout of the bonnet (hood) is just slightly too low, the top and bottom of the bonnet should curve up to meet in the middle whereas on the model it meets slightly too low and gives it a slight 'frog-like' face. It is very minor though.
