what scale were you wanting? Heller do a 1:24 E type le mans. Or Revell do a 1:8 E type. Not many others available. Have you tried grand prix models or hiroboy websites?

Hi Carl you can get the 1:32 Airfix e type and 1:32 Matchbox Jaguar ss100 on ebay, they even have a range of Revell Jaguars, including a 1/16 Revell ss100, as well as kits from Heller, Hasegawa, and a 1/16 scale Riko Jaguar up in less than three hours, and a 1/24 Hasegawa XJ-S, hope this helps.

academy used to do a 1/16 SS100, you can still pick them up on ebay, had one in the stash for years will get round to it one day
tamiya used to do a nice Mk II in 1/24 a few years ago
revell and i think Hasegawa do e types....revell certainly did a d type once

I love Jaguars - my avatar might give it away...

In the end, I was so fed up there are NO big kits of Jaguars, I scratch-built my own.
Why not try? It isn't the 'black art' everyone thinks.

A bit old this post, but I have some for sale and not only Jaguar.
Also have an Jaguar MKII saloon in mint condition.
Fujimi EM models also in mint condition.

Roy, thanks for sharing pictures of your fantastic scratch built jags.
Carl, SMTS did a 24th scale E type in white metal back in the 80's. Some of the other plastic Jag kits mentioned have been around for years and the moulds are getting tired. The later Jag such as the Tamiya Mk2 and other Jag offerings from Fujimi and Hasegawa are good. Even the big Revell 1/8th scale kit is the old Monogram one from the 1960's. There was,another 1/8th scale kit from a Japanese manufacturer that was from different moulds. Bandai? Revell should retool their tired old 1/25 scale kit of the E type with a new 1/24 scale one as it is such an iconic car. Surprised that Tamiya have never made one. There was one from Gunze that was reasonably good some time ago with some white metal parts.

Very clever. How do you go about making those multi-curved shapes? Moulding in some way I suppose. But how?
