Don't know of a 1/12 XJS; But Imai or another Japanese maker did an XJS kit in 1/16 some years ago....I do see them on ebay occasionally. Price $50-$70 for a mint kit.......................Matt

It could be labeled as 1/16, but may scale out to 1/12. There are a bunch of kits where the model is actually larger or smaller than the scale indicated on the box.

thanks Jordan, would they have been that far out, so it will be 1/16 or 1/12 or something inbetween? thanks

I thought I'd seen this before - 1/16 by Bandai. Check UK eBay.

I have the Entex 1/16 kit--is that a repackage of the Bandai? I have not built it, but it seems like a good kit to a casual inspection.

What confuses me is that 400 mm in length is over 15 inches, which would indicate a 1/12 kit. A 1/16 version would be somewhere around 10 inches, the size of my 1/16 Gullwings. As a large-scale builder, I have never heard of a 1/12 XJ-S kit.

Jeffrey, please keep us informed as to how this comes out.
