Minimarque - Jaguar XKSS `The Green Rat` 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Jaguar XKSS 1956 Steve McQueen Alternative version MNMGRB119B Silver Ralf Lauren Actor Steve McQueen’s love of fast machinery is well known and he owned many exotic cars and motorcycles. One of his favourites was a Jaguar XKSS which he nick-named “The Green Rat” for its colour and the amount of use it got. The model is based on photos of the car from the late 1960s when McQueen and Jaguar were photographed in the back lots of various movie projects, the car not having a full roof at this time, just a simple tonneau cover rolled up on the rear deck and reproduced with plenty of life on the model. The windscreen area is a tricky one on this subject and gives model makers a challenge, the frame being a little heavy here. The other small details are well done though, the overall shape looks pretty good and the paint finish is excellent.
