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

This project is a new, scratch-built model of the Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Low Drag 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 a scratch-built roof to make it a coupe, plus various scratch-built parts in brass and other materials - 

  • 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

  • oil and water tanks

  • dashboard and steering wheel

Brass nuts have been added to the engine to resemble valves, and rivets have been added to the bodywork, in particular to the overlapping join on the roof of the car, which has also been added from scratch.  The wheel rims are also scratch-built in turned aluminium.  

​This version of the Lightweight is #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 and finished in July 2022.
