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

This is a new model for 2023, another one-off, scratch-built model of a Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Low Drag from Le Mans 1964.  

This version of the Low-Drag is #17 driven by Sargent/Lumsden, plate number 49 FXN, chassis number S850663, which abandoned the race in the 8th hour due to gearbox problems. 

 

As for the Lindner/Nocker model, the base of the model is also an AMR kit of the E-Type cabriolet, but it has been completely transformed into a Lightweight Low Drag. 

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.

 

​The model is a one-off and a commission for a customer and it has been reserved, but if you would like any information about a different model, please do not hesitate to Contact Me.

The model will be on display on my stand at Retromobile 2024
