Die-cast scale model with opening doors and bonnet and Whizzwheels

 
 
 
Anyone who spends any time at all reading this website very quickly gets to know that I like Jaguars. I own two of them in full size, one of which I drive every day and I feel privileged every time I get in. It really is an excellent motor car and I love it.

These late series 1 XJs are brilliant too, so stylish, and this is an OK model of it. I do think though that when they went to the 1:36 scale Corgi lost an awful lot of the fine modelling. You'd think it was easier to get it right on a bigger car but they don't seem to.

You would never have seen spotlights linked to the plated grille like that once over, all the lights would have been jewelled.

But we get nice opening doors and bonnet and clever use of plated and non-plated plastic to give some good engine detailing. 7/10 for this one
