Well, here we go then, my one and only Jaguar. Scratchbuilt!

Sir Stirlings 1954 Dunrod TT race D-Type Jaguar Short Nose. Number 20 car OKV3. This was a works car, one of three aluminium chassis D types made and was the first D to actually win a race at Reims in 1954. Incidentally the car still holds the record for fastest recorded time (for a D) down the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans at 187mph. It currently belongs to Vijay Mallya.

The chassis is Protoslot steel front motor chassis, and as you can see it's an ideal fit between those tumble home sides of the Jag. A full length Stirling Moss driver was added, a Protoslot/Immense Miniatures mix, and a fully detailed cockpit was built and installed.

The car is a scratch built, with a EXCELLENT body and wheel inserts from John Warren Resins. Look him up!
