Charisma does not come cheap, even when it has been scaled down to 1/43rd of its original size . . .
It was handy for SMTS that Lynx Engineering was located close to its Hastings HQ. While Lynx was busily restoring the 1/1 scale Ecurie Ecosse transporter to its former glory, SMTS was allowed easy access in order to cross-check details for its forthcoming miniature.
This has now been released as a 500-run limited edition, each model being identified by a brass plaque mounted on the chassis. SMTS’s future plans include the release of Ecurie Ecosse C- and D-type Jaguars, with identical ID plates, the idea being that serious collectors can assemble a matched set. Those wishing to do so are advised to reserve their Jaguars well in advance, to ensure that they get the right ones.
Skilled craftsmen with less ready cash will be pleased to hear that unlimited supplies of the kit version will be available.
