Jaguar

Recommended Posts

Has anyone built the 1/8 monogram jaguar? Is it a good kit? Are there any detail sets for it?

Look for seller roymatthewblack on eBay... Roy has made a big range of 1/8 E-type upgrade parts and details for the Monogram kit or DeAgostini part work...

best,

Thanks for bringing this up Bruce.  I also have one of these kits and was wondering the same thing. I built it as a kid and pretty much ruined it, but now I have a second chance.

In addition to what Matt said, Roy used to post on britmodeller.com, he no longer does but his builds may still be there.

I built 2 of them myself and have 8 more laying around, beautiful kit. It is old, so it needs detailling, but it is a very good start to begin with.

 

I am making Dunlop wheels for them;  (square version, but within a few weeks, I am also going to offer the round version (D-type))

And I made a tutorial for how to built the tub: (it is 12 years old, when I start another XKE, I'll update it with better photo's)http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/building-tutorials/6549-cracking-code-getting-rid-xke-panellines.html
