Getting the best possible model of the original XK (120/140/150) has been something that I've wanted for a while now.  I have the cream colored Sunstar XK140, and while it's pretty enough for me to keep on display, it's a little bit too big for 1:18 scale, and it's just not all the way satisfying for such an important piece of Jaguar, British, and sports car history.  Autoart skipped over the XK completely when they made their '50s-'60s Jags, which is really a shame, and no other manufacturer has tried for it, until Cult.

I missed Cult's black and red XK 120, that color combo would've been my first choice.  I was a little bit skeptical of the BRG with black wheels, but now that it's here, I think it looks great on it and it fits in with the other classic sporty Jags perfectly.  Cult has yet again made a faithful rendition of a classic car that I love, I'm very happy with the model.  But I must say, no Jaguar models have ever satisfied as much as the old Autoarts.

You have a very impressive green/black Jaguar collection, I really like the colour coordination. The shape of this model looks quite nice and the green interior works quite well, but I think they could have improved the grill and headlights a little. I want to get a model from Cult, but I am waiting for them to make the 1967 Aston Martin DBS V8, preferably in olive green as they already made the same model but in orange.

I love the XK150 ... such a stylish car. A very decent model from Cult. Nice group shots, it's great to see these beautiful Jags together.

All the best looking Jaguars together. Someday I would love to add the XK130 got its purity of form.

Nice add, one of my all time favourite cars, to my eyes it's prettier even than the E Type.  A bit nerdy maybe but I'm really impressed with the depth and definition of the shutlines from your photos; for a fully sealed model they have a real depth and shape to them, they aren't just grooves in the shell.

Thanks everyone :occasion14:
Spikyone, ya, I'd have a hard time deciding between XK vs. E-Type.  I've come away from some Jaguar meetings where there were a lot of both feeling like the XK does look even better. Especially when it's in perfect shape and in a nice color combo, they just steal the show.
Rapide66, yes, I too am really hoping for another chance at the DBS V8.  And olive green would be my first choice as well.  I never really tried looking for the gold one.
