Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Jaguar XK120 Jabbeke Record 1949 Hand built available RL113BM SMTS have used the same basic kit components and instructions for all of the XK120 kits, with just changes to the decals for the race versions. The main metal bodyshell is well proportioned and the dry fit of the smaller parts is excellent, suggesting that these will be straightforward builds. Providing you have suitable reference material that is. The assembly drawing covers all kits and points out certain parts which are unique and refers to the colours of some of the options but not all. There are also no decal placement instructions... “We didn’t do one as they are pretty straight forward”. With photos the decoration is simple and there are some nice touches such as a pre-formed etched grille, but simple drawings and colour references would have been a huge help. The instructions mention optional wire wheels but there are none in any of the kits and the competition cars at least all ran on disc wheels anyway.
Reasonably well cast white metal kits that build with ease. Open wheeled subjects usually accurate, road cars not always so. With hand-built models again single seaters usually better. Made in England.
