Rex Hays XK120 model ex Lord Montagu's collection
Since Feb 2000  visitors have been here

The Collectibles list was formed in February 2000 as a forum for discussion between all Jaguar Cars enthusiasts who have the irresistable urge to collect automobilia for the marque. This page is Under Development and will focus on Jaguar Models but depends totally on your contributions to it as I do not specialise in Models (well, I have a few and the more interesting ones are shown here). You can subscribe to the list from here using the Majordomo web interface.

F-TYPE

With the announcement that the F-TYPE is to go ahead for production around 2004, models of the original concept and its eventual successor will be sought after - Jag-lovers has a dedicated F-TYPE index page

Below is the Marque Models concept F-TYPE (1/57 scale in pewter) in its Special Edition presentation exclusively from Jaguar Cars Ltd


Doepke XK120

One of the more famous and largeer Jaguar model kits (a true toy really) in eighth scale at 17½ inches long, made by the Chas. Wm. Doepke Mfg. Co. at Rossmoyne in the USA. This example has been assembled but still has its original box and instructions. The models only ever came with the baked enamel finish in a blue/green (difficult to repro exactly, the nearest colour match is probably the front view). There was even an official Jaguar Cars company christmas card depicting a small boy holding up the car as a triumphal present with the words 'Some day, some day'

 


Rex Hays

These two models came from the National Motor Museum through a 1999 Brooks Auction. Originally commissioned by Lord Montagu during the late '50s and '60s, they were on display at the Museum from 1972 through 1999 on loan from Lord Montagu.

They are scratch built 1/20th scale models fabricated almost entirely from wood. Rex Hayes was often to be found in the pits during races taking notes and measuring up for his models. Current value for these models is approx £800 - 1,000 or more each.

D-Type - the 1955 Le Mans winning Mike Hawthorn car. Slightly odd in that the air intake paint should be white, not yellow!
XK120 - the 1949 Jabbeke 132 mph car, HKV500, in its LHD record run attire


Jaguar Model Club

Here are some of the annual models produced by the Jaguar Model Club (JMC) run by Gary Oxley. They are currently 1/43 resin from Provence Moulage and very, very detailed. Only produced in Limited Editions of 50 and available to club members only, they are getting valuable especially those with extras on top of the model.

For instance, the XK180 uses original Teal flip-mica paint left over from the prototype and came with leather swatches from the original cars! Not to mention the signatures accompanying each model. One of these 180s became available recently and fetched over £200.00 when offered to the highest bidder!

Thiery Tiellon

Scratch built beautiful Swallows from Terry Tiellon recently on the market (March 2001) in 1/23 and 1/43 scale.

Classic Jaguar Miniatures

These two models are the latest offering (1999/2000) from the Classic Jaguar Miniatures, run by list member
Gary Oxley who you should contact for more information.

Both are of the 1928 Austin Swallow 2-Seater Sports in 1/43 scale.

CJM LE model (also showing custom base and LE numbering) against a Milestone Miniatures 1927 Austin Swallow model (Milestone to left in each pic below). The CJM models are much more true to scale and detail accurate than the Milestones which are a little too large for 1/43, working out at 1/42 scale. Also, the Milestone front valance is that of a 1930 model, not 1927, and there are a number of detail errors such as wire wheel colour etc. There was a mascot supplied but I have been unable to get it to fit.


Triang Spot-On

This is an early 1/42 scale XKSS with its original box and leaflets that came with it.
XKSS No 107
