Model-Icons has released two new Jaguars in its range of 1/18 scale models.
Limited to 2,000 pieces, the Coombs Jaguar Mk2 3.8, registration plate BUY 12, was built up by the Coombs Racing mechanics over the winter of 1961. It was to be driven by its two leading drivers for 1962, Roy Salvadori and Graham Hill.
Hill secured first places at Oulton Park, Aintree, Goodwood, Silverstone, Mallory Park and Snetterton to become the season’s outstanding Jaguar driver.
Also out now and joining Model-Icons’ Police fleet is the Jaguar 340 in the livery of the Staffordshire County and Stoke-on-Trent constabulary. Limited to 999 pieces, it has the registration plate TRF 317G and is from 1968. The Jaguar 340 was one of the first cars to be fitted out with new safety features, including a bright red boot and a specially built roof box with rearward facing flashing red lights.
