You guys were so quick at identifying the Revell Ford GT body that I've got another one for you. 

 

It's a fairly narrow Jag E-Type lightweight in 1/24. Was this ever issued as a kit? If it was, I guess it would be one of the obscure Jap makers.  Kogure made a hardbody version, but I'm not aware of a vac version. I just want to make sure it's not from an original kit before I cut it up to make windows for a restoration.

 

Regards,

 

Steve C.

Steve,

 

Don't recognize that at all.  :unknw:

 

There are five vac-formed Jaguar coupes I know about:  Aztec 220, K&B 1302, Pactra 111, Shark 512 and Stormer S426. 

 

All of them are XKEs and none of them look like your example.

 

I agree it could be Japanese, but that's pretty much outside my range.  :scratch_one-s_head:

Same here: knew about most of the coupés, and have never seen this lightweight... 

 

If I were you, I'd try to find another body, a junker, to cut out the windows - you might even be able to find a new one, since the XKE (as we called it in the States) doesn't seem to be a very popular vacform body. This one could make an interesting car! 

 

Don't think there were any kits with this version, but may be ignorant of an obscure Japanese brand...
