It is nice to see this new website up and running. I'm a collector of mainly 1/43 but do collect most other scales. As I have been doing this for over 50 years, I am now somewhat limited in space so prefer this scale. Atlas Editions sold in Europe are one of my current collecting areas. They have a nice Jaguar variety. I will show a few here and may add more later. I do, naturally, collect a lot of other Diecast other than Jaguar.

Below are the Jaguar SS 1 Airline,  Mark V, XK-120 Coupe,  XK-150 Drophead, X-Type and F-Type Cabriolet.

@kuvakas1Wouldn't the SS be a "Mark I"?

Mark 1

I'm far from being a Jaguar expert. I thought this was a Mark I.

Hi John,

Here is the Atlas Editions Jaguar Mark 1 in light blue. As you know there was also a Mark 2.

The SS cars, Swallow Sidecars before the Jaguar name also has 1st and second editions but I'n not sure that they ever used the Mark designation.

My favourite Atlas Editions Jaguar is the C-Type. This was the first win by a C-Type at the Reims Grand Prix in 1952. Stirling Moss took 1st place. I also have a limited edition Provence Moulage model of this car in resin, #44/50 by the Jaguar Model Club on a plaque signed by Sir Stirling.

@kuvakas1That's a Mark I of the 3.4/3.8 series. I was thinking of the Mark IV, V, etc. following WW2. A little confusing - kind of like the Lincoln Continental where there was another "Mark" between the '56 Mark II and the '69 Mark III.

David Green, do you know if anyone has yet made a F-Type 400 Sport in 1/43?

Hi Dave. So far I know only of a cheap one by Bburago in 1/43. I am sure others are on the way.

Message for David,

Random question — Are Atlas Editions models removable from the plastic base? I have two models from Atlas with an unusual screw, almost like a bolt, that seems impossible to remove.

@rrader..

Hi,

The fittings on mine are a triangular screwdriver head. This I think is an Asian fitting also used by IXO and several other companies. I think that these Atlas Jaguars are made by IXO.

At a hardware store for $10, I bought a set called "30+1 Screwdriver Set" made in China. It consists of a screwdriver base and 30 heads including the triangular one. Cost was under $10. It is in a clear covered container 2.5 in diameter and about 5 inches high. Hopefully you can find one locally. All the best. I have removed most of the Atlas cars from their bases for display.
