SMTS - Jaguar XK120 1:43 model

Jaguar XK120 model by SMTS

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Jaguar XK120 15th Le Mans 1950 #16
Kit available RL113D
Jaguar’s claim that the 120 in the name of their new sports car referred to top speed needed proving and the car’s first competitive outing was on the Jabbeke motorway in Belgium where test driver ‘Soapy’ Sutton set a speed of 126mph with windscreen and roof in place and then nearly 135 with an aeroscreen, hard tonneau cover and faired in mirror as seen here. The aeroscreen and faired mirror became a regular layout on early competition cars and they were raced with varying degrees of success. The Ecurie Ecosse car was one of three which formed the foundation of the team, the car modelled being owned by Ian Stewart and the colour on this one is slightly bluer than we’re used to seeing for traditional Ecurie Ecosse ‘flag blue’. Overall the build quality on all of the models is good with well-placed decals and small details. The paint on the two cream coloured cars (Jabbeke and Le Mans #17) is slightly heavy and has flooded the side vents on our samples, but otherwise no problems.


About SMTS

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.
