  1. Looking on 'Britain from Above' at a photo just post war of Filton, there are a couple of Beaufighters on the airfield with large white square markings - any idea what these were for ? https://www.britainfromabove.org.uk/en/image/EAW003553 Bottom centre right
  2. Nice build and good finish. Just one note - you can't get both spoilers up together on a Jag ( unless you've disconnected them ! )
  3. Nice - actually didn't realise they had a more 'modern' scheme till I just looked up 615
  4. Nice job - I recall on TMT1 at Scampton being given an asbestos mitt and told 'when the aircraft starts it WILL catch fire' - to a Jag man that was more than a little disturbing !
  5. .... and they went from 3 legged to 4 legged in the 90's
  6. https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=10219227863594141&set=g.1011450909369059
  7. I've built many Jaguar models ( stangely enough ) but have always steered clear of the KH - it's just got too many issues for me
  8. That has got to be one of the best paint finishes I've seen in a long while. Very realistic and no over done panel lines. Great effort !
  9. Early 80's for Jaguar, so guessing the same
  10. Could do with some replacement decals for mine I reckon Airfix are missing a trick. They could double box a Tutor and Viking, offer them at cheap rate to RAFAC ( ATC as was ) Sqns. Would encourage newcomers into the hobby, and as you say they'd be snapped up. Maybe the VGS / UAS could take 'singles' too to sell on
  11. I remember that in 85. Bet it got binned....
  12. Saw this in the hangar at Boscombe back in the 90's when i was down on a Jaguar upgrade visit. You have done a great job capturing the look of the real aircraft.
  13. Only seems like yesterday I was stood on the flighdeck of a 'new' C130J cruising up the Med.... they are still young compared to the legacy K's they replaced....
  14. Nice idea - wish I'd pinched more bits when I had the chance
  15. Great job ! However, with the exception of the bomb bay it makes me realise how well I did with re-scribing the old one
  16. I built the F1 before Airfix released their injection moulded one. It'll either be in the Coltishall or City of Norwich museum now - was a part of the RAF Coltishall history collection before we closed and things got dispersed. From recollection it went pretty well, but I'd cut my teeth on a few Dynavector kits by then.
  17. Been checking the 41 Sqn members site photos - yes 9Ls over wing with both pod or bombs on CL
  18. I could do my MI-26 and use it as office air conditioning.....
  19. Right behind the cockpit - used as little Matchbox as possible
  20. Did exactly that - I had an old resin FA2 radome, the Matchbox Hawk 200 and an Airfix back end
