HERPA Jaguar E-Type Coupe in 1/87 scale.

While collecting Wikings, I came across this Herpa version in London. It looks just like the Wiking version until you look at the bottom. This one was made in China and does not say Herpa or Wiking on the base. The Wiking were made in Germany.

HotWheels Revealers - Jaguar XJ220

The Revealers from 1993 were a series of cars with a lottery type of game included. 

The cars were sold in different clear blister packs, but they were wrapped inside a yellow opaque paper baggie. The baggie was intended to be dissolved in water, but it was easier and less messy to just tear them open.

P1090213

 

The main purpose of them being packaged this way was because there were a limited number of cars packaged with a plastic Hot Wheels Logo token to be sent in to Mattel for a prize. If you found one with a Blue Logo, then you would send it to Mattel to receive a special package of 10 of Hot Wheels. If you found a Gold Hot Wheels Logo then that was good for a boys 22" Bicycle Decorated in Hot Wheels Team Blue with logos and a Gold Plated Lamborghini Countach.

 
There were twelve different castings each released in three different paint colors. They were all made in Malaysia.
 
The last, number 12 was a Jaguar XJ220. This was a new release that year (1993), the only one of the twelve to be so.
It came in three colours, red, blue and purple with no tempo decals, a black plastic base, clear windows, black interior and UH lime wheels. Model code number was 3026.

Darda Jaguar XJ220 in 1/60 scale

Darda is the name of a German toy car racing set which was most popular in Europe and the USA throughout the '80s and '90s. The unique selling point of the sets is the special Darda Motor, invented by Helmut Darda in 1970, propelled the cars at speeds of up to 30 mph. There were a variety of bodies that could use an interchangeable chassis. The Jaguar XJ220 by Darda came out in 1993 in either white or silver. This is the white version.

These were mainly intended to run on tracks similar to those for HotWheels.

In 1993, Toymax introduced a series called Snap Shots which had a variety of vehicles intended for children that could be fired through several mechanisms at speed to perform stunts. Two of these were Jaguar XJ220s, introduced as full sized cars grate same 1993 year. The fronts looked like XJ220s while the rear was full of the motor mechanism.

AUTOCRAFT White Metal Kits in Britain are making kits in 1/76 scale of the Austin Swallow made by the company before it became Jaguar. They seem well made kits with a little filing needed.

Here are the kits with a built example for the open 1930 Austin Swallow, and the closed 1930 Austin Swallow.

These are indeed to go with British 00 model railways.

JEC from China have put out an excellent 1:64 Jaguar E-Type Coupe in resin. This is to me the most detailed Jaguar so far in this scale. It is quite expensive for size at about $40 each by the time you import them.

Here is an unusual and rare model. 

In the late 1950s, AHI Brand Toys in Japan produced a series of approx. HO scale metal cars with tin bases. These were issued in small plastic cases.

This is the Jaguar XK150 open stop roadster in white.

Here are two other issues that are not a Jaguar but here for comparison.

U.M.I. of Germany has issued some really small Jaguar E-Type Roadsters in 1/160 scale. These are the smallest jaguars that I have, slystly smaller than 000 or N scale. I purchased these in the early 1990s.

Schuco Piccolo Jaguars.

Schuco of Germany over the years have produced models in a wide variety of scales. 

Schuco's first consistent foray into diecast toys was in 1958 when the 1:90 scale 'Piccolo' series was introduced.These solid metal (and heavy) cars were accurate, yet mildly cartoonish at the same time. Piccolos were solid cast metal without plastic windows nor did they have interiors. Piccolos are highly collectible today, whether the original models or the later Schuco reproductions. More than 100 different Piccolos have been produced.

Here are some examples of Jaguars made in the Piccolo line.

In 2009, Greenlight  issued a British Racing Green, Jaguar E-Type  in the Motor World Classic Series.

 I just uncovered this in one of my storage boxes. It is 1/64 scale.

The only other Jaguar by Greenlight that I am currently aware of is the 1/43 Steve McQueen Jaguar XKSS.

Road Champs (information about the brand generally, not Jaguar specific.)

Road Champs have been with us for 20 years now and yet they have seldom received much notice. The history of this brand can be followed on the bases of their models. The earliest models date to 1982 and like most Road Champs, carry the city, state and zip code of their manufacturer. This odd practice may have been to allow prospective wholesale or retail firms to find the firm. In 1982, JRI, Inc. of Harrison , NJ 07029 produced these toy cars. By 1990, Road Champs Inc. of Caldwell, NJ 07006 is listed. Models dated 1992 identify West Caldwell, NJ. The latest models from 2000 list Malibu, CA, 90265 as the address and Road Champs Inc. is now a subsidiary of JAKKS Pacific Inc., a public company trading as JAKKS. The web-site is www.roadchamps.com.
 
 
The earliest 1:64 scale Road Champs models are also some of the best. They included opening doors and even full engine detail in some cases as seen on the Ferrari Testarossa. These early models are quite accurate and include metal bodies and bases. the wheels are much like those of Hot Wheels from the same period. Matchbox and Majorette may have been the target competition for these models. Most of these early models were of American cars.These initial models from Road Champs were priced the same or higher than the competition from Hot Wheels, Matchbox and Majorette. 
 
In the early 80s, one series issued under the Road Champs name include - "Ragtops". These castings had removable plastic tops with most having a separate cover to put in place over the 'open' top. These were initially made in Hong Kong but moved to China in the mid-1980s.
 
 
Here are the two China made versions of the Jaguar XJS by Road Champs.
