  1. XX765 is the ACT (Active Control Technology) test bed used by BAe for Fly-by-wire flight trials, and is preserved in its "raspberry ripple" scheme at RAF Cosford. Photos by Rich Ellis.
  2. Hi! Now in stock! Cockpits for the Kittyhawk 1/48th Jaguar GR1/3 and A. Plus seats for the Javelin FAW9 and Harrier GR3/T2. See http://www.neomega-resin.com Thanks! Gordon.
  3. One of my favourite cars of all time but not one of my favourite kits. I hope you like it.
  4. 1/48th Cockpits to fit the Kittyhawk Jaguar - A and GR-1 ! See you there! Gordon.
  5. Just visited the excellent museum at Cosford and fancy doing the ACT Jaguar. I found a thread here based on the 1/72 Revell Jaguar GR.1 but the kit does not seem to be available now from Hannants. Should I go for the Hasegawa or Italeri offering instead? Got a nagging suspicion the Revell boxing was one of these anyway? Not seen on this visit (making space for the EAP??) was the Martin Baker Meteor that I also fancy modelling - but I am stumped as to finding a 1/72 Meteor T.7 fuselage to attach the F.8 tail to... Advice gratefully received. PH
  6. Here is my attempt at the Italeri Jaguar kit: XZ107 41st Squadron; RAF Coltishall, 1988 Hand-painted an finished; Humbrol enamel paint and Humbrol acrylic varnishes; Decals supplied with the kit
  7. A few things you don't see every day, from a great day out at the Donington Historic Festival: Sunbeam Tiger LM Coupe Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato Mercedes W125 continuation Jaguar XJR-15 Facel Vega 2 My garage... ;-P DBR1, DB3S and DP212 (I think...) Lancia Aurelia ERA and Alfa wheel to wheel Not the best picture, but the unique ERA GP1 in action... Senna's Lotus 97T in which he won his first GP, before it went out on the track... In the car park... I just liked the colour! I guess if you can afford to run a classic racecar, the odd supercar is pocket change... Lots more, including some detail shots of some modelling use here: http://cmatthewbacon.smugmug.com/Cars/Donington-Classics-2013/29286583_Knvk5R bestest, M.
  8. Well I'm a bit of a lurker in the vehicle section, there is so much beautiful work here. I'm pretty much an aircraft builder, mainly WW1 and airliners, and started a Revell Routemaster last year which I'm still struggling with. Anyway I decided to tackle something less ambitious and summoned up courage to join in with a car build. I saw this Airfix Jaguar in the shop and thought It would be a good one to have a go with. I've always liked Le Mans cars, beauty and hairy chested muscle power in one package, although I don't know much about them. The Jag called out 'buy me and build me', so it went straight from shop to workbench as a fun diversion from my usual stuff. Here it is, hope you like; The wide white stripe is Halfords appliance white from the rattle can, the gunmetal is airbrushed Citadel Boltgun metal darkened with a little black to match the 'claw slash' decal stripes. Wheels are Alclad aluminium, headlights alclad chrome. The chrome window edgings is bare metal chrome foil. The only mod I made was to the roof arial which looked a like a broomstcik, it was so thick. I replaced it with a bit of fishing line. Body is brushed with Johnsons Kleer befeore and after decalling. All these things are form my standard aircraft building stuff. I must say I was astounded by the supreme accuracy of fit of the whole kit, it was flawless and brilliant. I'm hooked, I've got the Airfix Aston DBR9 to go with it now! Thanks for looking, John
  9. Here's the box art from de future KittyHawk 1/48th BAe Jaguar GR.1/GR.3 kit - ref.

V.P.
  10. Can view more photos by clicking on either photo! Will get some more up later Jaguar by Radleigh Bushell Jaguars by Radleigh Bushell Twin stick Jaguar by Radleigh Bushell ...to be continued!
  11. Do you remember the talentuous chinese kit designer named M. Song who worked for Trumpeter and who's now working for Kitty Hawk Model ( http://s511.photobuc...Sepecat Jaguar/ ). His current employer has obviously taken over this project as M. Song has just published, on his personal photopage, CAD drawings of a SEPECAT Jaguar A (the French version) and announced this Jag as one of the next 1/48th Kitty Hawk kit. To be followed.

  12. Hi all, Been putting the finishing touches to this today so thought I may as well get it up in RFI. Another old kit hopefully brought to life with a bit of work, I know this isnt going to come anywhere near to the Kittyhawk Jags that we have seen on this site recently, they are awesome (Respect to Mike & Mattius), but I’ve enjoyed doing it, probably pick up a Heller jag for my next big cat! Anyway, she’s painted to represent XX733 ‘Pink Spitfire’ of the first Gulf conflict circa 1991. I re-scribed some of the raised panel lines and made a few modifications here & there, paint is a mix of Revell aqua colours, decals from Xtradecal, Pavla seat and RBF tags are from Eduard. FOD guards are scratch built. To finish this properly I need to source the stores for the outer pylons and the overwing Aims, guess its going to have to be the Flightpath set for these but cant stretch to that at the moment. Anyway, here she is... Cheers Simon
  13. Jaguar GR Mk.1/A 1:72 Hasegawa As has been the case with many multinational combat aircraft, the Jaguar had a difficult gestation. It started life as a trainer and light attack aircraft, designed to fulfil the requirements of both the French Air Force and the Royal Air Force. Two companies collaborate on the design and development of the aircraft; Breuget of France and BAC of the United Kingdom. The venture they formed was known as the Société Européenne de Production de l'Avion d'École de Combat et d'Appui Tactique (European Company for Production of Combat Trainer & Tactical Support Aircraft) or SEPECAT. Two distinct aircraft were originally proposed. The first was to be a low-cost trainer with limited ground attack capability, the second a larger, more capable strike aircraft with variable geometry. The French eventually withdrew from the latter programme, but the project survived and the aircraft eventually eventually emerged as the Panavia Tornado. The delay in the development of the dedicated strike aircraft cause a problem for the RAF as their planned ground attack capabilities were centred on this aircraft. After some wrangling, the remaining aircrafts tasking was re-written to remove the trainer element. The Jaguars evolution into a dedicated strike aircraft was complete. The RAF eventually took delivery of 165 single seat Jaguars and 35 two seat trainers. RAF Jaguars entered active service in the mid-1970s and went on to participate in numerous conflicts around the world. Twelve RAF Jaguars saw action in the skies over Iraq in 1991 and the aircraft was used again four years later in Operation Deliberate Force over Serbia. The Jaguar left RAF service just two years later in 1997. Hasegawa's Jaguar GR Mk.1/A has been knocking around for quite some time now, and in that time it has established itself a reputation as the best 1:72 Jaguar around. It has a satisfying blend of detail and all-round accuracy, and is quite straightforward to build too. The kit is comprised of 75 parts, although not all of them are used as there are optional parts for the British Jaguar Gr.1 and the French Jaguar A. There is a tiny amount of flash on smaller parts such as the undercarriage legs, but other than that the sprues are in pretty good condition. Surface detail is comprised of fine, engraved panel lines and fasteners. Cockpit detail is comprised of a tub with side consoles moulded in place, an instrument panel, control column and ejector seat. The cockpit parts lack any raised detail at all, so instruments and controls are represented by decals instead. This is one area of the kit that would benefit from some scratchbuilding or aftermarket accessories. Because Hasegawa have also produced a twin stick version, the forward fuselage and nose is provided as a separate sub-assembly. This means there will be an extra seam to clean up, which is a bit of a pain (although to be fair, other Jaguar kits share this trait). The central and rear fuselage is split vertically, with an additional part for the lower rear fuselage. This slight complication is necessary because of the contoured shape of the aircraft around jet exhausts. The engine intakes and exhausts are fairly simple but just about detailed enough to pass muster, particularly in this scale. The wing is moulded as a single part, which should help speed construction up a little. Two different vertical tails are provided to allow a Gr.1 or A to be built, so make sure you use the correct one. The undercarriage parts are pretty decent, although somewhat simplified compared to the real thing. The undercarriage bays themselves are basic but do include some structural details. The airbrakes can be posed in the open position, but are something of a weak point as the characteristic perforations are depicted as rather strange bumps. Slaves to accuracy will definitely want to drill these out before assembling them. A reasonable range of ordnance is provided, including drop tanks, bombs, rocket pods and a pair of Matra Magic AAMs. The canopy is reasonably thin and clear and can be posed in the open position, although as mentioned above, the cockpit itself is nothing to write home about. Decal options are provided for three aircraft: Jaguar GR Mk.1 of No. 54 Squadron, RAF Coltishall; Jaguar A of ECF4 11FAF, Bordeaux-Merignac, France; and Jaguar International demonstrator The decals look ok, but both the red and blue used for the RAF roundels and fin flashes are much too bright. Id strongly recommend digging out some alternatives from the spares box or purchasing some aftermarket replacements. Conclusion Hasegawas Jaguar is pretty much the best kit available 1:72 scale. Whilst it might lack some of the fine details and engineering finesse of a state of the art kit, it enjoys a good reputation as an accurate which is reasonably easy to build. With the exception of the decals, this is a sound kit which should prove to be a quick, fun build. Review sample courtesy of UK distributors for
  14. Jaguar GR Mk.1A/T MK.2A 'Black Jaguar Combo' 1:72 Hasegawa The Jaguar started life as a trainer and light ground attack aircraft, designed to fulfil the requirements of both the Royal Air Force and the French Air Force. It was born from a joint venture arrangement between Breuget and BAC known as the Société Européenne de Production de l'Avion d'Ãcole de Combat et d'Appui Tactique , or SEPECAT, translated as European Company for Production of Combat Trainer & Tactical Support Aircraft. Originally, two separate aircraft were proposed; a low-cost trainer with limited ground attack capability and a larger, more capable strike aircraft with a variable geometry wing. Pressure from Dassault led to the withdrawal of the French from the latter programme, which eventually emerged with two new partners as the Panavia Tornado. This cancellation left a gap in the RAFâs roadmap, as their planned ground attack capabilities were centred on the cancelled aircraft. With support from Germany, who had expressed interest in the Jaguar as a ground attack platform, the jet trainer element was completely removed from the aircraft's tasking and with the introduction of the Hawk and Alphajet, the Jaguarâs evolution into a dedicated Tactical Strike aircraft was complete. The RAF eventually took delivery of 165 single seat Jaguars and 35 two seat trainers. RAF Jaguars entered active service in 1975 and went on to participate in numerous conflicts around the world. Twelve RAF Jaguars saw action in the skies over Iraq in 1991 and the aircraft was used again four years later in Operation Deliberate Force over Serbia. The Jaguar left RAF service just two years later in 1997. Hasegawaâs Jaguar GR Mk.1/T Mk.2 has been around for a few years now. In that time it has carved out a reputation as the best 1:72 Jaguar. Besides being eminently buildable, it has a good mix of detail and all-round accuracy. Although absent from Hasegawaâs range for a while, the kit is now back as a limited edition release comprising of both the single and twin seat version, with decals for two all-black machines. Predictably enough, each kit is moulded in black plastic. The single seat version in comprised of 75 parts and the twin seat is made up of 84 parts. The sprues are in pretty good condition, although there is a little flash in places, particularly on smaller parts such as the undercarriage legs. Surface detail is comprised of fine, engraved panel lines and fasteners, which should look excellent under a coat of paint. Cockpit detail is comprised of a tub with side consoles moulded in place, an instrument panel, control column and ejector seat. Obviously the T Mk.2 has two of everything except the tub. Fine detail is represented by decals as the cockpit parts lack any raised detail at all. If you want to super detail the kit, you might want to replace the cockpit with an aftermarket version such as that available from Aires. In each kit, the forward fuselage and nose is provided as a separate sub-assembly. This is a bit of a bind as it means there will be an extra seam to clean up, but this feature is by no means unique to the Hasegawa Jaguar, as the Revell/Italeri version also shares this trait. The central and rear fuselage is comprise of port and starboard sides, with an additional part for the lower rear fuselage. This is presumably necessary because of the contoured shape of the aircraft around that area. The engine intakes and exhausts are fairly simple affairs, but are just about detailed enough to pass muster in this scale. The wing is moulded as a single part, which should help speed construction up a little. In the case of the GR Mk 1, a different tail is provided. Make sure you remember to use it instead of the other version which is only suitable for the Jaguar A and T Mk.2. The undercarriage parts are fairly respectable, although they are somewhat simplified compared to the real thing. The undercarriage bays themselves are fairly basic, but include some structural details. The airbrakes can be posed in the open position, but the airbrakes themselves are a weak point of the kit as the characteristic perforations are depicted as rather strange bumps. A reasonable range of ordnance is provided, including drop tanks, bombs and rocket pods. If youâre using the kit decals, these can all go in the spares box. The canopies are reasonably thin and clear, although there is a little flash that will need to be cleaned up first. The canopies can both be posed in the open position, although as mentioned above, the cockpit itself is nothing to write home about. Surprisingly enough, decal options are provided for two aircraft: GR Mk.1A of No. 16 Squadron; and T Mk.2A of No. 6 Squadron Both aircraft are finished in a the black scheme depicted on the box. The decals are nicely printed, if a little on the thick side. In my experience, however, Hasegawa decals usually perform quite well. Conclusion As mentioned above, this Jaguars are pretty much the best that money can buy in 1:72 scale. Whilst they may lack some fine details here and there, the kits enjoy a good reputation as accurate models which are fairly easy to build. As with many Hasegawa kits, this is not the cheapest way to acquire a Jaguar, but on the other hand this particular edition isnât that much more expensive than two of the regular GR Mk. 1 kits. Overall, this is a decent package and both kits should be fun, quick builds. Review sample courtesy of UK distributors for
  15. Hasegawa have announced a new tooling of the Eurofighter Typhoon, which some of you may already have heard about, but we now know when it's coming, and that the initial production run will include a bonus display stand. No further details on that aspect of it, but it should prove handy, I'm sure. Decals include RAF No.3(F) SQuadron, coded QO-H, and Luftwaffe JG74, and there will be 195 parts in the box - quite a high part count for a 1:72, which bodes well. This looks to be the boxtop picture, culled straight from Hasegawa's website. I'll be interested to see how it compares to the Revell kit in the same scale, as I always thought it had room for improvement on the detail. It should be in the shops here around October time, allowing for the vagaries of the slow boat from Japan getting here on time, which gives you plenty of time to put one or more on your Christmas wish list. Modern jet fans rejoice While we're on the subject - on a related note, a new Dual-combo boxing of the Hasegawa Jaguar GR.1A/T.2A is being released at the same time, with parts for two kits, one of each mark in the box, and decals for a 1A of 16 Squadron, coded XX965 in 2010, and a T.2A of 6 Squadron, coded XX141 in 2009. A good month for RAF lovers
