Jaguar XK-120 by Revell in 1:25

Recommended Posts

Hello friends of beautiful model making,

... may I present you my Jaguar XK-120? There is not much to say about this. A model that was fun to build. The convertible top was covered with genuine leather. Wafer-thin. Only 0.1mm to 0.3mm thick. This model is one of my all time favorites. So, let's be looking at it.
Your opinion on this would be interesting.

 

And, as always, greetings from Germany, Uwe.

Well done. It looks like the bonnet opens, does it have an engine?

Nice job, and I like the leather covered convertible top.  I just got this kit and look forward to building it.

First, many thanks for comments!

 

@DonW: Yes, there's a engine in it. It's a 6 cyl. I got just one picture from the workbench.

Is this the model that started as a diecast kit then was released by Revell as a plastic kit? I picked up the plastic version when it came out over fear that I'd never see it again, which I didn't. Glad I picked one up, seeing your well done model makes me want to dig mine out of the stash.

I didn't know Revell made a kit of one of these. My favorite Jag, I like it better than the XKE.

The only one I ever knew of was the Monogram Diecast hybrid from almost 40 years ago and I've never found one of those since then.

Sehr schön Uwe! ich hatte an meinem versäumt, den Gießgrat an den Seiten zu entfernen...hatte eine schöne Linie danach 😄

 

Very nice Uwe! i missed to remove the moldingline on both sides..looked interesting. And i mounted the fenderskirts for a smooth look.
