Is the XJR12 still available? Or any other Jag IMSA or Group C cars?

Toyota 88C from Cross

Porsche 962 from Colt - will also fit touring cars with low front shocks like the Tamiya TA05-IFS

There are quite a few Group C shells available, the Blade Racing ones are especially well detailed.

the colt Porsche isn't very good the detail is poor to be honest but they are cheap and as already mentioned they are one of very few group c's that will fit a touring car chassis.This is my serpent 710 with colt 962 shell

The mcallister Jag is an XJR8/9. The XJR12 had the intakes on the sides rather on the engine cover. That was my first body for my 10L 20-some years ago when my dad and I started racing. He painted it up in the Silk Cut livery. I wish it hadn't been thrown out years ago, it was really a work of art. I want to replicate it soon, but I need to figure out what chassis to run it on and a way to make the decals (patto's place makes nice stuff, but I'm not paying $70+ for a sheet of decals).

Is there anywhere stateside to buy the blade racing XJR-14? The price is decent until they charge you $17 shipping per body (when they could easily nest them together in the same package). That's probably the closest replica I've seen- all the others have always looked wonky. I still have the HPI XJR-14 for my 12L and it looks decent from the windshield forward, but from the radiator inlets (which are too small) back it's nothing like the Jag. I did a crap paint job on it since I was like 13 at the time (silk cut livery) so I may try stripping it and redoing it in the bud light livery.

I have a special interest in that car, really. It was my favorite car growing up, but I only ever got to see it turn about 10 laps in anger at Road America in 1992, where Davy Jones broke a wheel going through the carousel in practice and wrote the car off before the race.

I've even considered making my own mold to pull bodies from. I did an F1 body when I was in high school for an art project that turned out surprisingly well, so I know I could do it. I've also thought about making molds of the Eagle MK3, the XJR10/16 since associated doesn't make theirs anymore, and maybe try a backpour of the 235mm pro-line RX792P I still have somewhere. I like bodies that don't have the wings molded in. It's more of a pain to attach them, but they look so much better.

Either way, I love these cars. Group C/GTP was always cooler than F1 to me.

Love those cars! I had the slot car (Slot-it) versions the Jaguar Silk Cut and Sauber. Both very fast and cool looking cars. I saw the Jag up close at a Reno car museum. Couldnt believe how small they actually are in person. I had to stand there for a minute.

The blade racing 962 actually looks pretty good too- would look even better with some Lwenbru decals I know Parma used to make a set, as well as the Silk Cut stuff. Would probably be easier to find someone with a vinyl cutter these days though.

Tamiya is going to re-release the Porsche 956 bodyset for the RM01 1/12 pan car. Most likely will just be the Rothmans paint scheme with the decals "RACING" to replace "Rothmans" because can not import Tobacco sponsors on RC kits into the US.

They can import them but they have to be labeled as adult collectibles and can not be sold to minors. I'm sure there are probably additional taxes involved as well. The manufacturers don't see a need to label their kits so we don't get them. I'm just thankful for aftermarket decals.
