Excellent model, Matt -I have this kit in my stash sind 1993 when it was first released. Thanks for theinfo on the tires eating the rims....

 

If you have it in your stash, I'd get it out and have a good look inside -- it's not just the rims the tyres will eat! I'd make sure they're in a separate bag away from the other bits...

 

bestest,

IIRC, at the Pebble beach event Skip's talking about, they got about a dozen of the 18 total there to mark Jaguar's 75th anniversary:

There are companies that will turn a D-Type into an XKSS for you, and others that will build you a replica for a price:

Personally, if I had £95K spare, I'd spend it on an Eagle-tuned E-type rather than an XKSS replica, but that's just me...
