There were two very distinct Lister Jags - the more familiar one is often called the "knobbly" style with a very pronounced bulge in the hood and fully open wheel wells. For 1959, Lister enlisted the aid of Frank Costin who designed the more aerodynamic body pictured above. As I recall, the chassis was pretty much unchanged. I think that i have some photos around. If I can find them, I will scan and post them.
That white with blue stripes (Briggs Cunningham?) looks nice, but at £80-90 a car I doubt I'll have one. If Ninco did £30 classic I'd probably have both. Of course, that would still mean only 2/3 profit for makers.
It's a pity economics gets in the way of slot car manufacture.
LS, maybe its the missing lens over the lights?
The MMK Astons have the same 'thing' (I'm reluctant to call it a flaw/problem etc because they're such beautiful models but they ARE missing). Once its pointed out, it is a little noticeable.
I noticed the exclusion of the headlamp covers as well. It's more than that though. The headlamp area just seems a little wrong too, the shape that is. I've seen the cars with the covers off. So, it isn't as simple as an optical illusion. There's something about the rest of the front end as well.
