Jaguar C-Type

Le Mans 1953 Winner

Driven by Tony Rolt and Duncan Hamilton

by Javin Smith

1:8 scale


This wonderful piece is one of a very limited run of C-Type models produced by Javan Smith, noted large-scale model constructor. As with all of his works, this was hand built in England. It is very rare, less than 50 built. The model shown is one of his very early editions, and it replicates the overall winner, which was one of three factory entered C-Type's.


The model is beautifully finished, high gloss paint, and with all correct exterior details and markings, even the correct different style double windscreens are in place. She rests on hand laced wire wheels shod with great treaded tires. The interior is very well done with its framework, and detailed dash gauges. We love the correct inclusion of the six spare spark plugs sitting on the right side sill. And we have added something extra... this one comes with a miniature leather tool roll filled with little tools.


The model is mounted in its original display case, and overall represents an excellent value of a very rare model.
