The Jaguar E-Type is an amazing sports car that simply looks fantastic.
Unfortunately, detail is missing in the engine of this model, and such is the battery, which simply is incorrect. Thankfully we have corrected this, and we bring to you the replacement battery.
There are 2 types of batteries made for this car 1 for the UK and one for Export and in fact, has its own story to go with it.
The battery used on the E-Type was a MILAM-cased Lucas FRV 11 7A, 57Ah capacity, tar topped with separate Lucas branded black filler caps and six exposed round copper cored lead 'links' connecting the cells. The battery had Lucas lettering molded on the side in black (not white or the 1970's red and gold logo sticker!) and the filler plugs were black to Jaguar specification. Lucas did supply other batteries with red-colored plugs (made them easy to find when you dropped one) but not only for exported cars; probably an aesthetic decision by Sir William!. The Parker-Kalon self-tapping screws holding down the helmet connectors to each terminal post were slot heads (documented by a Lucas bulletin). Every Lucas battery was supplied with printed instructions detailing maintenance instructions and specific gravity. Cars for export were fitted with Lucas FRVZ 11 7A 'dry charged' battery which required filling at the final destination
The FRV11 7A battery code translates as follows:
FR = Ferguson (tractors) special battery - the XK engine required a heavy-duty battery so this was chosen
V = type and size of plates
11 = number of plates per cell
7 or /7= special assembly to Jaguar requirements (black plugs for a start)
A = terminal layout and nominal voltage
Z = dry charged for export
each battery comes with its own battery tag in the box.
You’re not just buying a product, you’re buying a piece of magic to bring your model to life and I bring that very unique and personal service to you. when you shop with me you deal only with me, from start to finish right up to the packaging and shipping.
When you order my mods, you can be confident that every thought has gone into them from the initial design right up to the final manufacture and packaging.
The equipment I use is of the highest quality from my printers right down to the temperature-controlled soldering iron and electrical test equipment, and because electronics are involved safety is my upmost priority, all my circuit boards are tested vigorously for long periods of time before they are sent out.
Although I already make certain electronic mods, I do have customers requesting to customise certain mods, such as a wire harness, or a complete wireless system, which I am more than happy to do, and because I make everything myself quality control is very high.
You know, there should be an award for what you and Corrie are doing. You’re really breaking new ground in the modeling industry. There may be the unique modeler who can customize a kit, but you’re allowing the average modeler to have something truly special. We’ve been modeling for close to 60 years, and have never seen anything like it. The complexity, attention to detail and quality in design and materials goes so far above and beyond that we are just in awe. Kudos to those of you who are producing these outstanding mods. Hope and Mike
Every mod I’ve bought from ModelModz, and I’ve bought almost all of them, has been great. The quality and attention to detail of each mod is superb. Corrie and Chloe’s customer care is second to none and they always add that personal touch.
What chloe & corrie have done is truly breathtaking to be able to make these mods with the attention to detail that they put into every design is only matched by the quality of the products they produce.
I was blown away when my first mod arrived and it makes my model special and full of life and all this is from two people!! Modelmodz have made it so we can have the authentic models we always dreamed of and are breaking new grounds in the modelling world Thank you chloe and corrie
Modelmodz is what I consider to be the pinnacle of quality and innovation when it comes to upgrades for the Eaglemoss DeLorean. Every piece offered is designed with astonishing attention to detail which is a true reflection of the passion and care each of the creators have for their work.
Hi, I'm Chloe the creator of what you see here today.
I have been building models for some time now, and realised that most models on the market seem to be in-accurate or just need that little bit of magic to make them come to life, that’s why I decided to create and setup this shop you see today.
I offer bespoke modifications for models of all types including those you see in my shop, I can tailor my products to your individual needs. Everything you see in my shop is unique and personal, and if there is something you need, and I don’t have it, I’m sure I can help you.
