Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Jaguar D Type 6th Beverly 1956 #41 Bennett Kit available MM263 We tend to think of British Racing green or Ecurie Ecosse blue but roughly two thirds of the cars built were customer cars, many of which went across the Atlantic and were painted in a rich tapestry of colours. Three such examples are seen here and although all have the same basic short-nose body configuration they were all different chassis numbers. John Gordon-Bennet drove chassis XKD525 to sixth place at Beverly, the black car entered by Briggs Cunningham. Ray Seher was the owner and driver of the bright yellow #100 machine and was classified eighth at Laguna Seca. Merle Brennan’s red car from Reno throws up a question. Marsh Models have interpreted the photos as the car being numbered 17D but the very roughly painted numbers on the car look to us to say 170 and there is a small letter ‘c’ class marking above and behind which is missed on the model. They are otherwise superbly finished models and kit builders could adjust this detail if they so wish.
