1:43-Scale, Super-detailed, Scratch-built Model of the
Jaguar E-Type 'Lightweight', Le Mans 1964

This project is a new, scratch-built model of the Jaguar E-Type 'Lightweight' from Le Mans 1964.  The  base of the model is an AMR kit of the E-Type cabriolet, but it is being completely transformed into a Lightweight coupé. 

These transformations include the addition of the roof to make it a coupe, plus various scratch-built parts in brass - 

  • chassis and sills

  • door frames in brass which are hollow inside

  • window frames

  • rear hood with a working hinge

  • suspension system including a functioning steering rack

  • engine cradle

  • exhaust manifold

Brass nuts have been added to the engine to resemble valves. The wheel rims are also scratch-built in turned aluminium (the tyres in the photos are just to help with the presentation).  The oil and water tanks are now being made. 

​This version of the Lightweight will be #16 driven by Lindner/Nocker, plate number 4868 WK, chassis number RA 1347-95, which abandoned the race in the 16th hour. 

 

This project was begun in early 2022. More information and new photos will be added as the project progresses.
