  1. So having built a JP3, into a Jet Provost T4, I'm now going to transform this JP4 into this Jet Provost T3, Parts, looking familiar. This is my progress so far.

    Jet Provost Colours

    Hi, I am about to start painting on my Airfix Jet Provost - scheme is White, Red, LAG. Airfix suggests H174 for the Red, indicating it to be BS537 in the instructions. I also have here Xtracolor X014 Red Arrows Red, also labeled BS537. Comparing the two, Xtracolor looks a little lighter and a bit more one the 'orange' side than H174. I am not sure which paint to use. Does anyone know which one is the better match? TIA Ingo
  4. Hi Folks There have been a few top class builds of the recent Airfix Jet Provost posted in RFI of late so I decided to post my humble contribution. I give you the recent Airfix 1/72 Jet Provost T3 finished in Light Aircraft Gray(from the Mr.Hobby range) and decals from the Xtradecal set for the Airfix Kit. The hi-vis markings were for the most part ok to use but getting them to follow the curve of the leading edge of the wing was less than successful with the solid areas of dayglo decals being quite rigid and brittle which resulted in cracking and splitting of the decal. I patched up the dayglo as best I could and touched up the damaged decals with some dayglo paint. I did attempt to add some of the vents/air scoops to the fuselage but did not correct the canopy as I had finished painting before I read about the canopy framing being an internal feature, for noting on the next one. Thanks for looking
  5. Been in a bit of a modeling funk recently - finding it hard to build up any enthusiasm for the hobby. Two weekends ago, my wife and daughter were out of town, so I thought I'd give the new Airfix JP a go - a nice, simple build, no complications, just the thing to get the modeling juices going. As I was looking at the boxes in my stash, I thought to myself that perhaps I could build the Airfix Vampire as well, while I was at it - similar, simple colour scheme, so I could airbrush both at the same time. While I was contemplating that idea, I spied the Airfix Gnat box - same scheme...... So I started all three.... And they are nice, simple builds - aside from a few minor issues, they built up very easily and quickly, such that I had all three airframes complete before the end of the weekend - just what the doctor ordered! Finishing them was another matter - the Airfix JP Dayglo decals are thick, brittle and unresponsive to decal softeners. A re-think and a quick look through the old SAM magazine pile showed that I could do the JP in an identical colour scheme to the other two. A profile in SAM showed that I could even build the exact same airframe - XM413 - in an earlier scheme than that offered in the Airfix box, so I could use those decals for this build - bonus! And a lucky bonus too - I discovered I was reading the Airfix painting guide incorrectly - I thought the Airfix box scheme was High Speed SIlver with Dayglo stripes, whereas it's actually LAG - I had painted the model in the wrong colour. Finding the same airframe in the earlier HSS/Fluorescent Orange scheme was fortuitous, saving a re-paint. I even had some spare CFS rhomboid decals in the spares box from the old Matchbox Provost kit. I spent most weeknights this past week adding decals, and just finished all three this morinng. So, here are the Airfix 1/72 Jet Provost T.3, Gnat T.1 and Vampire T.11: Thanks for looking!
  6. Hi, here's my latest, done as a relaxing build over the hols to take my mind off certain crap that's going on in my life at present.

  7. Photo Etch Detail Set for Airfix Jet Provost T.3/T.3A 1:72 Eduard Airfix's new Hunting Percival Jet Provost has been around for only a few months, but our Ready for Inspection Forum has already been populated with some rather excellent examples of the finished article. Now Eduard have released a set pre-painted photo etched details for the cockpit and airframe, as well as a set of pre-cut masks for the canopy and landing gear. Jet Provost T.3/T.3A Photo Etched Upgrade Set 1:72 Eduard In usual Eduard style, the set contains both pre-painted an plain parts spread across two frets. The pre-painted set includes harnesses and ejection handles for the kit's seats, as well as a multi-layered instrument panel and parts for the centre console. The unpainted fret contains additional details for the sides of the ejector seats, as well as the cockpit sidewalls and rudder pedals. Also on this fret are replacement torque links for the landing gear legs and hinges for the flaps, elevators and rudder. Additional details are provided for detailing the cockpit canopy and, best of all, there are parts to represent the FOD guards. The odd blade aerial and intake scoop have also been thrown in for good measure. Jet Provost T.3/T.3A Masks 1:72 Eduard There isn't much to say about these parts, other than the fact that they will make masking the canopy and wheels a quick and painless process. Conclusion Airfix's Jet Provost looks to be a nice little kit with a charm all of its own. Now that the likes of Eduard are producing aftermarket sets for it, I expect to see a few more on the tables at shows up and down the country. This set adds plenty to the kit without going over the top. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of

    Armed Jet Provost and Gunsight

    Am planning to build the Airfix Jet Provost in armed configuration that was in service with the South Yemen Air Force. http://www.acig.info/CMS/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=75&Itemid=1 Photos showed that it carried Sura rockets and I have that in my spares box which comes from the Matchbox Strikemaster kit. I also noticed that the armed Jet Provost are (obviously) equipped with gunsights above the instrument panel and a standby comapass(?) hanging on its windscreen centre frame.. However photos I'd seen are not in the best resolution and angles to show clearly its construction and arrangement. Have searched the web, particularly walkarounds and was not able to find any photos or drawings of gunsight or weapon aiming sight on the JP. Would be most grateful if anyone can lead me to any website that depict this or post photos or drawings. As a matter of interest, 7 of the South Yemen Jet Provost T.Mk.52s were purchased by the Republic of Singapore Air Force in the early 1970s to supplement the Strikemasters in 130 Squadron. YK

  10. Really enjoyable new-tool kit, needing only minor tweaks. This was a pre-release kit built for the current (November) issue of Airfix Model World, so there were no decals included; I used Xtradecals 72250 instead.
  11. Keeping it simple...old Airfix JP3 I don’t know about you, but sometimes I despair about how long it takes to finish a model. It seems to me that most kits are on the workbench for 3 or 4 months or so before they begin to look like the aircraft I intended. There must be a quicker way! With this in mind I set out to see if I could finish something within a week. The result was that no – I couldn’t – but this one only took 10 days so it felt like a victory of some kind. I chose something simple and they don’t come much simpler than the old Airfix Jet Provost T3. Bearing in mind a new JP3 from Airfix is just around the corner it seemed a good time to build one of those old ones that had been lurking in the attic for more years than I care to remember. I had also just finished its piston engine brother in the form of the new S&M kit so it kind of made sense on a number of levels. Anyway, here it is. I had intended an OOB affair (or in this case OOPB = Out Of Plastic Bag). I must admit I couldn’t help but change the ejection seats and add just a little bit of scribed detail on the fuselage top, and of course I found some new decals, but other than that it is just about original including working ailerons! I could have done a ‘silver with yellow T bands’ job, but I found a picture of some very early CFS JP3s which still had that leading edge root fillet that Airfix provided, so I went with one of these. I chose XM361 mainly because I had some spare Lightning decals for XM139 for which the serials were exactly the same size as a JP3. All the other decals were from good old Modeldecal sheets apart from the ejection seat triangles and fire panels. Had I not chosen a dayglo machine (white undercoat, followed by gloss orange, followed by two coats of fluorescent orange) I might have had it finished in the week, but of course the real timescale is set by the rest of life that goes on regardless of us modellers!
  12. ....... Just had a strange thought!! The last few Airfix announcements have been on a Friday and roughly two weeks apart. So it's been two weeks since we heard about the B-17 and Bomber Respply set and two weeks before that when he heard about the new 1/48 Meteor F.8 ...so... Should we be expecting a new Airfix release announcement today?? Cheers.. Dave.
  13. Hi everyone My next build... Should be fun! All the best Iain
  14. Finally getting around to posting this build which I've been working on for about a month on and off. All being well it should be completed by the deadline for this GB. Thoughts on the kit: I'm pretty happy with it all said. The detail is refined and crisp, the resin adds a certain something, and it goes together well for a limited run kit. The only bits that I've had significant trouble with have been fitting the tub to the fuselage and installing the instrument panel, both of which were probably my fault. For reasons best known to myself I decided to try to force the fuselage together as I found the cockpit floor seemed to be a bit wide, and I ended up with horrendous cracking all the way up one side of the fuselage. I stabilised this with some CA and made good with filler and you can't see anything now so all's well that ends well. The other problem was the instrument panel, I think I fitted it at the wrong stage and really struggled to get it into the cockpit. I ended up having to shave bits off the edges to get it to sit right, it's still not great but passes casual inspection. I realise that the panel is incorrect for a T5 but I'm not too fussed as the canopy with be closed. I've just sprayed the intakes and will be fitting them next. After that, it's decalling and adding aerials etc. Cheers Liam

    Jet Provost Lake District

    I was wondering if any ex RAF types or long term residents of Cumbria could give me a word to the wise? I lived on the northern edge of the English Lake DIstrict between the years of 1982 and 1991 and every day was a free air show. I saw just about every aircraft in the RAF inventory and quite a few US and other NATO types as well, but I can't for the life of me remember if I saw any Jet Provosts in this time. Given that the RAF used them until the early nineties it seems logical that I must have, but I can't recall a single instance of having done so. The Tucanos that replaced them are a regular sight over the lakes (and along with Hawks are just about the only thing to be seen nowadays) so presumably they are being used for the same type of training, so is anyone able to say whether I would have seen them or not? It seems a weird memory lapse for someone who is into aircraft.
  19. Well, here we are. I'll be building the Fly JP 5 like Filler. All being well I'll be starting some time in the next few weeks once my Wessex is completed. I'm looking forward to adding this one to the collection and will appreciate and tips, advice, and feedback as I go along. My first impressions of the kit are that it's nicely moulded with sharp detail, I've not built a limited run kit before so no doubt I'll come across a few issues but it can't be any worse than some of the 50 year old airfix kits that I've done before.
