    Dull barnish applyed, the cat is now sitting in his own legs (a little bit tricky to get it right). Waiting for photoetched speedbrakes from hannants. please forgive my messy work table here is a comparison with an early cat I buided, an italeri. I was really uncomfortable with the colour... I read your toughts and recommendations.

    In tne Model Alliance instruction sheet, are depicted several jags with both types of antennas. Is this wrong?

    Colour darkened and applying decals. I have to say that Model Allince decals from Hannants are excellent

    https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=49634.0 In this link I’ve found some kind of painting guide (don’t know which brand or kit) that depicts a pink Jag with LGBs... I don’t know how certain were the sources of this “guide”. But, also I found strange that the jag in the pic is “the sadman”, XZ364, and the antennas behind the canopy does not match with the ones in a GR3 (I think that must have the T shaped one). Lesson learned in this post, that realize a mistake made in a early build of that cat (when I finish my actual build, will show you both). So, I don't trust so much in this guide...

    Well, so I’m going to stick with the dumb bombs, and consider the paveways for a next grey ARTF build. Thanks!!!

    All of the resins are in 1/48 . Thanks anyway. Why is so difficult to find british loadouts in the model market??? I always rely on Hannant’s, its like the bible for RAF stuff, but the options are very limited anyway

    There is any resin LGB for this subject? I’ve seen that are different of the americans (I think that the paveway kit is assembled on standard brit 1000 lb bombs... the guiding head and enlarged fins?) I ve been searching for those bombs in 1/72 with no positive results

    Thanks Julien for the tip about the pink. I’m working on the colour now, trying to darken a bit. Finally i got a pair of sidewinder, thanks for the info too. I was looking at pictures for granby Jags, and is rare to see them with two drop tanks under the wings. In the most cases were using only one in the centerline. There was some weight issue or something? I was thinking in a two tank build because I love the look it gets , but if this isn’t real, I will discard that option. I’m really glad to decided to post here in brittmodeller; you guys are great and love the info you gave me. Thanksssss!!! And thanks for your efforts to understand my survival english .

    So, putting things all together; standard camouflage schemes: For early 80s grey/green camouflage (Dark Sea Grey BS638 / Dark Green BS641) with Light Aircraft Grey (BS627) under surfaces. Late 80s till 90s grey/green wraparound In 2000, turned Dark camoufage grey (BS629) with Dark Sea Grey (BS638) on top, final paint scheme. Temporary schemes For Granby, desert pink For Telic and operations over former Yugoslavia, overall Light Grey (BS626) with pale blue and pink roundels. I have a question here... I found BS626 is Barley Grey or Camoufalge Grey, mostly used in air defence (Tornados F and Typhoons). So, is this colour right for the Jag?
