Looking for Allard J2 or J2X model kit or die cast

Did anyone ever make the Allard J2 or J2X either as a kit in any material or as a diecast?
I vaguely remember a wood model kit back in the 1950's.
I am looking for a model, or at least the plans.
Thanks,
Stephen
P.S. A replica is currently available in full size:

Do a search on "Allard" and 3 show up. About $65-$75.

Here's a review:

Roger Allard is a friend of mine... he owns Allard Motors and has been producing the Allard J2X for a few years. I have ridden in this car, and it is AMAZING! Needless to say, it has taken the world by storm. I'll see if he has any plans to market a die-cast version... would 1/18 be a more appropriate scale?

There are many car die cast models available in 1/18 scale these days. Thus there is a market for it in 1/18 and I think that would be the way to go.
Besides, I prefer 1/18 scale myself so my opinion is rather prejudiced.
Take a look on eBay, there are about 18,000 listings for 1/18 scale cars running now with only 4400 for 1/32 scale. However, there are 48000 listings for 1/24 scale diecast cars so maybe 1/24 would be the way to go.

It is his choice and I'll not complain about what he produces.

Thank you,
Stephen
