Yeah it's not the best but thought I'd share it, I might have a better side view image at home, I'll check when I go back later this summer.

I have been searching everywhere for something better and cant find it. I own one so I know just how bad these blueprinds for the Mg Midget can be. Niether BL nor BMC ever included a front, or rear view. Eventually I am just going to have to take some photographs and measurements of the real car and see what i can do.

In the mean time. I recorded and uploaded the sound of my engine (off site) the link is below. First you hear the car rev up to 2000 RPM and hold it for a few seconds, then it revs to 3000 rpm and holds it there for a few seconds and finally you hear it idle.

keep in mind whe you are modeling a 1971 model year car, do not, repeat, do not trust the cut line just aft of the seats in the top view. BMC modified this blueprint from one used for a 1098cc model in '67 and then BL recycled it. Anyhow hope this helps someone. I'll look through my repair manuals for more.

Edit: sorry about the formatting. I am no good at html.

Nice finds Andy, I too have an MG Midget mines a 73. I have a side on view from a lubrication chart somewhere I'll try and scan in, thought its probably not as good as the ones already posted.

Ok I found this on this website CAR blueprints / Чертежи автомобилей - MG blueprints

Its a very good representation of teh front rear and side of all the different variations of the MGmidget from 1961-1980. The top view from the aussie brouchure will work for all, just keep in mind that the cut line at the front of the rear deck changes somewhat and the bumpers also change over the years as do the interiors.

as this post is for 1969-1974 cars I will only show the two versions fo those years

'69-71


'71-'74
