XKSS is a really nice kit -- combine with Merit or Lindberg body parts and you can make a good D-type as well. Technically, of course, it's only 4 years of Jaguar (1957-61) -- 100 would need to be a dual Swallow sidecar and i-Pace kit...

best,

M.

That looks like a nice set-----I may look into that if it's possible to get it here in the States. I built an XK-SS a long time ago as I converted mine into a D-Type. That can be one heck of a fiddly kit, but they look great when patience is used to get it together.

Glad you posted this, for the reminder.

I'm not too keen on the recent E-type, because of the bodged windshield height, the way the engine is done, and a few other things.

But the old SS is a kit I need at least one more of.   :D

There are a couple of SS-100 kits out there, but neither of them are in 1/24.

There's a white metal one from SE Finecast in 1/24. It's actually the first of theirs I bought, and one of the reasons why I bought the cheap Silver Ghost to practice on. Needless to say, I haven't built it yet. It's an original Finecast kit, not one of the Auto Kits they picked up later, so it's beautifully mastered and finely detailed. For some reason, the model they put on the box and web site is painted in black, which makes it hard to see the quality!

best,

M.
