    I've just ordered 6 models of the Jaguar XJS car, as used by Ian Ogilvy in The Return of the Saint.

    Sales of the P1800 Volvo ST 1 model by Tin Wizard, have been very successful so the XJS was a logical step.

    The XJS model, made by SMTS, will be hand-built in white metal with their usual attention to detail and build quality.

     

    If you want one of the six ST1 XJS's let me know straight away by phoning me on 01244 320761 or by email: [email protected]

    To see some photos of the real car, click over to the SMTS category on the site.

    Just arrived from SMTS is a model unique to BHM. Especially commissioned by me is a replica of the first Jaguar E-Type, chassis #850001, to leave the production line in March 1961.

     

    Check out this beautiful model in the "Sovereign" section of the BHM category on the site.

     

    A gorgeous model.

    It has been proposed that a joint venture between Silas Models of France and British Heritage Models of England should produce a 1/18 scale version of the Mk 2 Cortina, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the original car, in 2016.

     

    Initial suggestions are that the model would be based on the 4-door saloon. To achieve economies of scale, the proposed 200 (?) units of the LIMITED EDITION would cover three models in that range: the 1600E, the 1600GT and the 1600 Super.

     

    No prices are available yet but the model would be up to the usual standards of Silas excellence and value for money. There will be no opening doors etc.

     

    This announcement is a 'toe in the water' exercise to judge demand for such a model. If you are keen to register your interest, please contact me for further details: T 01244 320761 or email [email protected]
