A brace of “Silk Cats”!

A brace of Silk Cats from 1987 – both 1/24 XJR-8’s from Hasegawa # 4 car driven by Boesel and Cheever and #5 by Watson & Lammers.  Hasegawa also produced kits of the XJR-9’s (which swept to that historic victory in 1988).  The kits  include wonderful sets of decals (including the tobacco branding) for all the TWR cars entered in Le Mans that year.  I actually have all of those kits in my “stash”, and at some future date I hope to get around to building them – hopefully before the decals begin to “mellow & yellow”!
