A Couple Of Cool Cats
September 30, 2016 in Automotive
Don’t know exactly why, but I just think the Jaguar XJR-9LM is a really cool looking racer and I knew I wanted to build it one day. I have had both the Tamiya and the Hasegawa kits in the stash for quite some time, and I finally pulled the trigger on the project…..twice.
The Tamiya kit includes an engine in their offering whereas the Hasegawa is basically a curbside model. The kits are similar in construction and both offer very complex decal challenges. Obviously the Tamiya kit with the engine requires a bit more effort and allows you some opportunities to do a bit of plumbing in the engine bay. Thanks to Google the are plenty of reference photos available.
