Scale Model Pages intro

 

JOB Jensen Owners Belgium Jensen & Jensen-Healey cars

 

Introduction

 

When we bought our first Jensen car, we thought there were no scale models of the Jensen make.

No, exept the yellow Jensen FF by Dinky Toy.

But one, that's nothing...

 

Then we saw the different editions of the Yellow FF by Dinky Toy.

They even had different registrationplates.

We saw there were different packagings for the Yellow FF by Dinky Toy.

There was even an "Action Kit" set by Dinky Toy to make a blue Jensen FF.

 

Now all this years later we were aware of the fact you can spend a real Jensen

on Jensen sale models or models produced by Jensen

 

Do not forget...

Jensen was also building for other companies as

Volvo, Austin-Healey, Austin, Invicta, Alvis, Lea-Francis, Sunbeam...

 

So if want to be complete,

just think about how many scale model companies are making or made scale models

of all the Austin-Healey variants....

It will be a list, a very very long list...

 

In the first table you will find a link to the scale models of the Jensen badged cars.

 

The second list deals with the other bodies and cars build by Jensen.
