Jaguar XJS

Recommended Posts

Here's on I finished last night. It's an old Jaguar that I found at Dean's in Owosso over the summer. Even though it's a bit undercooked in a few areas (no wipers and a few missing trim moldings). I'm not sure of the source, but I replaced the plastic tires with some AMG style wheels and some real tires. I filed off the telephone that was on the armrest into nothingness and replaced the clunky, oversized gear shift for the custom piece from a '53 Studebaker.

As a Jag fan I've often wondered about this kit but have never seen one built before.

The Hasegawa kits are certainly superior but nevertheless you've built a fine looking model there.

Thanks. I liked the subject matter, and I'm never one to turn down an interesting snapper.

Nice clean build. I didn't even know that that car was ever kited.

Also in 1:16 scale by Entex and boxed by others. Usually expensive.

Used to own the 1:1 ... Very nice! Have any interior shots?

Nice to see an old kit brought to life!

The wheel swap has given it a more menacing look.

I love it (Seen plenty of these 1:1's in the UK, but they're rare now. Rust, running costs and spares, killed them)
