Picked this up at a deceased estate auction, no box, but a good model. Picked it up in  a lot of 4 cars, for a great price.

A shame it's a bit worn, and needs a clean, but a great model. Any ideas on what its worth?

I had one and sold it at a loss. It came with paint rash on the hood. Then I wasnt happy with the detail. In hindsight I should have kept it and upgraded it, changed the wheels etc, but oh well

I wonder how far you could go with it? Wire wheels, PE set, some bare metal foil?

As far as your patience takes you. Nuts, bolts, hoses, wires, etc

As you know, this is a lovely little model Odin - I have the earlier release gold and BRG versions, and would like to have grabbed one of these upgraded versions to display with them, when there was a glut of them about 3 years ago and CK were selling them for about £35 ($50 at that time) but I never got round to it :bawling:

...so I don't think they're going to be worth a great deal - and of course this model is known for its 'paint rash' (NB NOT ZINC PEST) which  I'm sure you'll be able to live with, in the knowledge that a good polish should get rid.. :nice:

Having quite a few Jaguar's in my collection, the Autoart C type is one of my favourites. I also recently picked up a 2nd hand version of the 1953 LeMans winner (#18). This was so that I could cannibalise parts off it to add to my existing standard BRG version in an attempt to create a replica of the 1951 LeMans winning C type (#20). For some reason Autoart didn't produce this in 1/18 scale, which is odd as it would have been very popular amongst collectors of LeMans winners.

Good to know, I basically bought this for 5$ ( Lot of 4 for 20$) so I'm happy.

5$ makes this a keeper. Congrats. What were the other 3 models?
