  1. Evening all. I'm hoping not to be the last entrant in the GB (but not hoping very hard) - have been a bit bogged down in other stuff and I'm only just getting to this. I fully expect to overhang the end of the build by a fair way ... so perhaps I can set a record for the most prolonged Group Build instead. Anyway, enough of this nonsense. I'm in with an Airfix 1/48 Jaguar. As you can see, it's quite an old boxing (you should see the sides!) but it wasn't old when I bought it. But to be a little bit different I'm going to be doing it as one of these: - a Jaguar IM with Model Alliance decals. The IM is, of course, the Indian Air Force anti-shipping version with the Agave radar nose. Well, it was; they've changed to an Israeli radar and use the Harpoon now, and the colours are predictably tedious, so I'll stick with the original scheme. Though the yellow-and-grey test missile will be a bit beyond me. With the help of these: The nose and centreline pylon are from The Model Works - I found them on eBay quite by chance and I get the impression that's the only place you can get them. Despite their claim, Model Alliance seem never to have made an Agave conversion, so TMW saved me buying a Super Etendard and finding it had the wrong radome profile. Also contributing will be these: On the left, a Sea Eagle lifted from the Airfix Buccaneer; on the right, the very nice NeOmega cockpit set. I still need to find an image to show whether the IM had a radar display, but otherwise this is pretty much right for the original Indian cockpit layout. I actually started this kit a fair while ago during a modelling demo in Hobbycraft. Didn't get very far but it was pleasantly therapeutic to nip bits off the sprue and trim them ... I did manage to get some bits together, though. As you can see, the wings need a little work under the tips: And the cannon fairings need a little work too. They're not even the same colour as the fuselage. More updates as they crawl through - hopefully some time this week, light levels permitting.
