Jaguar XK120 Coupe Montlhery by SMTS

Jaguar XK120 Coupe Montlhéry 1952
Hand built available CL086BM
Following on from a fairly comprehensive collection of XK120 roadsters, SMTS now turn their attention to the equally attractive fixed head coupe. The core parts in all the kits are the same, with just a few additions for specific versions. The body is cast with the rear wheel spats as separate pieces so there’s the option of open or closed arches here, and the standard wheels are the original steel discs. For the seven-day speed trial at Montlhéry in 1952 the car was fitted with wire wheels, so if you wish to build a wire-wheeled road car, this would be the kit to go for. We’ve been critical of instructions (or lack of) in several recent SMTS releases and here the boxes all have the same basic assembly drawing and for the specific Montlhéry and Moss versions there are additional detailed written guides for decoration. The hand builts are all generally well finished and there is a very delicate and prominent aerial on the record car, so be careful unpacking! The road car provided by Jaguar for Moss in the early 50s throws up an interesting question. The period image of him unloading it from a cargo plane suggests that it was left hand drive, but the restored car (or at least the car that is painted these colours and wears the number plate) is right hand drive, as is the model. The kit offers the option for builders to go either way.
