I did a full set of TGUK cars from the season 16 christmas special. All are 1/25 scale plastic kits modified accordingly.
Challenge: The presenters are challenged to re-enact the journey of the Three Wise Men by travelling from northern Iraq to a stable in Bethlehem, using second-hand two-seater convertibles bought for £3,500.

Jeremy's Mazda MX-5 was built with the technicolor paint scheme and a few desert accessories. i made the bullbar from styrene tube. rope is string soaked in white glue.

James' BMW z3 had the wheels changed and painted in camo scheme with rescue equipment. i found a shovel in my spares box and scratchbuilt a pick.

Richard's Fiat Barchetta was the easiest kit to find. i added the material from his Bedouin tent after he destroyed it, by printing the pattern on paper. then added mud and a tumbleweed to the front
