This model is the Solido 4002 1938 Jaguar SS100 in green as released as part of a publication house part-works (possibly by Hachette).

The model has no opening parts. It has a chromed grill and headlights, imitation plastic bonnet strap in black plastic, clear glazed front windscreens, black tonneau and chromed rear number plate.

The interior is a black plastic with a right hand drive black plastic steering wheel and also contains a white highlighted instrument panel.

All wheels have simulated chrome hubs - solid, one piece black plastic that incorporates the tyre, with separate "wire spoke" insert.

The base plate is green painted metal and is marked with " Made in France" at the front below the grill, "SOLIDO" in the centre bottom, "Jaguar SS100 1938" on two lines at the centre top and "1/43 No.4002 02-81" at the centre bottom. Below the base plate casting is a separate chrome plated chassis, exhaust, driveshaft, differential and leaf spring casting.also has cast drive shaft and transmission system. It is held in place with a single self tapping screw and hidden body lug.

I do not know when this model was issued. Its stated scale is 1:43.
