Hello all, 

 

Has anybody ever built the 1/25 Revell Jaguar xjs? Or does anybody own one and would be willing to post some decent parts pictures, there is very little info on this kit on the net, obviously the more popular Hasegawa version is the main result of searches.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

 

Andy.

This ebay listing indicates it's a snap-together kit

Here's a different boxing from "The Saint"

I did not know there is a 1/16th scale kit from Entex (also issued by Bandai)

Just attempting a new photo software, so thought I'd post something appropriate to the topic :)

Hi Andy,

I have that one as well. Shame it's the US spec version though. :(

 

Cheers, Alan.

In truth it's a rather odd spec , since it's at least partly Japanese .  If you look at the exhausts they appear to be simulating the steel mesh grass fire shields round the actual exhausts which were mandatory for imported cars in Japan in the 1980s .

Indeed, but nothing a little ingenuity and a lot of swearing shouldn't be able to fix :) i also intend on making a 6 cylinder engine for it to match my car, I want to replicate my car in the picture... but without the rust!

Yeah it's a bit of an odd kit, although beautifully tooled, things like the decals look like they are from something entirely unrelated. Btw I wonder if revell will release this kit? I noticed they are releasing a 1/16 Porsche the same as advertised on the jag box, Does anyone know the provenance of that kit?
