Jaguar Mk 2

The latest scratchbuilt effort is a Jaguar Mk 2 kit from Pendle Slot Racing.

The chassis was simple to construct as it's the same as a ready-to-race Jaguar XK120 from manufacturer Ninco, so everything goes together easily and I just had to cut away at some bits at each end.  The bodyshell was cast really nicely and sprayed up well, first with primer...

...and then in bright red...

I painted the driver and interior, and detailed all the chrome bits and lights on the car.  I'm very pleased with how it turned out, and it races great too - quick with lots of tail slides.

The finishing touch was to give it a set of appropriate numberplates:

  1. Great Blog! A lot of effort and hard work has gone into your Scalextric collection - looks great! Some really unique vehicles. I like the look of the car chassis that rolls on corners. Nice classic Jag here too.
