This is the JAGUAR D-TYPE 24HR RACE 1955' WINNER J.M. HAWTHORN / I.L. BUEB #6 W/OPENINGS Model Car in 1:43 Scale by AUTOart. This model is highly detailed in 1:43 Scale. Beautiful paint, detailed interior and undercarriage.





Despite the size which is only 3.8 (9.7cm) long, Autoart scale 1/43 Jaguar D-type under Signature series has full opening of door, bonnet, detachable passenger top cover and the rear spare tire cover with metal hinge. The front grill mash is made of photo-etched plate. The engine's complex spark plug harnesses and carburetors with inlet ram-pipes have been reproduced in great detailed. The steering wheel is made of photo-etched spokes injected with plastic rim printed with wooden texture.
The model consists of 58 diecast and plastic injection parts, 13 chrome-plated parts, 62 metal screws/nuts/wires and 11 photo-etched parts.
Coloring of the model alone requires close to a hundred workers involving 78 free spray paint and mask spray paint processes and 31 tampon printing processes.
In order to maintain the continuous level of high quality when making a model with so many intricate components, the production is engineered or split into hundreds of processes so that each worker will handle only one or two tasks. Every model is in fact crafted and handled by more than two hundred workers along the production line.
The whole development of the model takes more than one year to complete involving dozen of engineers.
