  1. I've been working away bit by bit on this since I finished the Chinook, but I thought that the time had come to start a WIP and get y'all caught up. So, what are we looking at? It's Kittyhawks GR.1 / GR.3 kit which I think will build up into a pretty good shape. There are some gotchas to be aware of though. The kit is really designed to be made with avionics and gun bay doors open and airbrakes too. It's not my usual style to build like that, but I've heard it's can be a struggle to build this kit with those parts closed. Also when I dry fit the two halves of the fuselage, they tou
  2. Whilst sorting through a few old photos the other day I came across a couple of negatives taken on my dads old Zeiss Nettar camera that is older than I am. They were taken at the RAF Battle of Britain Display at Finningley (now DSA) I know now to be 1975 The photos are cropped off a 6 cm by 6 cm negative. Pretty sure it was an Ilford FP4 film (Roll film with eight exposures) and I developed it myself Lightning F.6 XS925 'J' of 11 Squadron RAF Binbrook Jaguar GR1 coded '20' of 226 OCU Lossiemouth, I have the lost the bit of paper with the serial on (doh!). The Jaguar was t
  3. Well following my disappointment with the amount of detail of my Hasegawa Jag I bit the bullet and managed to win a Tamiya one on Ebay courtesy of British Red Cross so I might of paid a bit of a premium but hopefully theyll benefit from a few of my pounds. So I hope I can do this beast justice, this is my first Tamiya kit and I must say they are fantastic, dry fitting everything together and it all stays together, I am very impressed. There is a fair few items on order so progress is slow BUT I really want to build this as detailed as I can, the cars hold very fond memories as a ki
  4. Here it is, some fancy photos of my Airfix 1:32 Jaguar E-Type Open Two Seater. I was going to build it as it came from the box but had to change the wheels and add a few extra details. The colour scheme is inspired by Jaguar E-Type registration 77RW, which is the first OTS E-Type although this isn't quite an exact replica. Added bits are: Mitoos Classic treaded 20x6mm tyres and 16.5x6mm wire wheels supplied by Pendle Slot Racing (very happy with their customer service). Nickel silver wire gear lever, hand brake lever, windscreen stay and windscreen wipers. Plus a rear-
  5. I was given this kit today by my team at work as an early birthday present. It was such a lovely and thoughtful gesture that, despite vowing not to start another build until I'd completed one that I'd already got in progress, I've decided to make it a project to get it built in the course of my week off next week. I'm sure the Airfix Jaguar E-type Open Two Seater needs no introduction. I built one of these in my adolescence and so I'm quite keen to go back and have another bash at it. It seems somehow appropriate that the bits come in a plastic bag, even
  6. Hi folks, A model I finished a short while ago. I am still quite new to model building, having done many years of miniature painting previously. A few notes on this one. - This is my fifth build and first Italeri kit. This will be the last time I buy a kit without reading a review. A lot of the pieces were ill-fitting and required a lot of sanding and filling. I would say compared to the other kits I have built (a Hasegawa, a Revell and 2 Airfixes) this was the most difficult and very nearly took a maiden flight directly into the bin! - I went a bit overbo
  7. Here are my two Jaguars that were worked side by side. The Revell Disbandment 'Spotty' Jaguar GR3A of 6 Sqn, XX119 from 2007 and a Hasegawa Jaguar GR3A of 41 Sqn, XZ103 from 2005 which was the display aircraft for that year. The 'Spotty' Jag was built OOB, the decals were hard work and took a lot of Micro-Sol and touching after afterwards to fill the gaps. Despite the reservations of attempting this, it's not turned out too bad. The 41 Sqn Jaguar was also built OOB apart from the correct aerial behind the cockpit and has Model Alliance decals applied. Both were painted mainly us
  8. Well kids.... I started all over again... New thread because the old one was just devolving into a endless stream of do overs. THIS THREAD SHALL NOT BE WHAT CAME BEFORE...THIS ONE WILL BE A FINISHED PROTOTYPE MODEL!! So a few months back my good friend Paul Fisher lost his home and wonderful workshop to fire in Paradise, CA. I am so happy he and his family escaped and in that light the mention of what comes next seems so trivial. Paul was in possession of the masters I had completed at the time of the fire so an opportunity to buil
  9. Begging your pardon, another old kit build. Over 20 years old. As usual the decal is falling to pieces, so I tried to apply them on carefully even if they are in 2-3 pieces.
  10. Hi All, Does anyone know much about the SEPECAT Jaguar? I have the Airfix 1/48 GR.3 kit (Hence why I posted this in Modern not Cold War) and I'd like to backdate it to a pre-Gulf War GR.1 Asides from not fitting the over wing pylons/Sidewinders, does anyone know of any other majour visual changes between the two marks? Thanks for your help in advance! Stuart
  11. Finished this a couple of weeks ago. After a very loooooooong in building, The kit was built almost OOB. I cut away the solid plastic of the nose laser windows and replaced it with layers of '5 second UV Gel'. Main paint was Humbrol 250 Desert Sand. The decals are old ones from Xtradecal 'Gulf Special' which has a few schemes for Tornado, Jaguar, Buccaneer and a Hercules
  12. So I had a great trip to RAF Cosford last week and my photos which I took with modelers in mind have had a great response on Facebook. Someone asked me to share them here so here's a link. Backstage at RAF Cosford Admins if you need me to split this up so it's more specific I expect I can Enjoy I did Alan
  13. Howdy forumites, its been a long time since I rock'n'rolled, but never mind that now. Today, may I present for your consideration a carved wooden series 1 Jaguar E-Type at roughly 1/24 ish scale. Entirely scratch built out of panga panga and basswood, with a little bit of plastic and brass. Took about 6 weeks with numerous pauses while work kept me away from my toys. I Don't think I'll use panga panga again, it is a bit of a pig to carve as it is splintery, and the heavy grain overpowers smaller details. however, it turned out all right, and taught me some more about the joys of whittling
  14. Jaguars at Nellis AFB for Red Flag 84-2, February 1984. XX746 17 Squadron XX750 14 Squadron XX962 17 Squadron XX975 17 Squadron XZ370 17 Squadron XZ383 14 Squadron XZ385 17 Squadron XZ388 14 Squadron Thanks for looking, Sven
  15. Just finished this 1/72 Italeri jaguar GR3 for my grandson. Depicted as the final flight from Coningsby in 1990 (although Sgt Vernon's name on the side comes from the final taxi at Cosford I believe?), The kit is very straightforward but the decals are a bit 'challenging' so buckets of microsol were required! Pilot figure is an awful Sword (I think?) figure from the spares box, but all I had at short notice unfortunately.
  16. Does anyone know where I can get some drop tank decals for an RAF Grey/Green cammo Jaguar 1/72? I have the Hasegawa kit with Pavla resin drop tanks. Can anything else be used from other types?
  17. This was a fabulous kit to make, all the parts fitted really well and with good instructions, as well as a nice array of stores. My first 1/48 kit. I think I left the wing strakes a bit too long, and I haven't got the skill to fashion the three tiny canopy mirrors, plus she's a bit too satin not matt, but I hope she captures the essence of a Jag from the days when it was so much fun to hang out at the end of Coltishall's runway, or see them screaming low over Norfolk! All comments welcome ...
  18. This is my 1/72 Planet Models Grumman XF10F-1 Jaguar. The Jaguar was the first attempt to build a practical swing wing fighter and while it was a good first try, wile most such things it was not a success. I used these 2 links, both members here, as inspiration http://tailhooktopics.blogspot.com/2012/06/xf10f-pictures.html and Including using the Obscureco F9F pather seat and cutting a hole in what would have been the wing butt joint and inserting the part of the wing that was to be cut off if the wings were to be mounted in the swept-forward position which is how I decided to display i
  19. I'm doing the Kitty Hawk Jaguar and wish to know whether to fit the chaff/flare dispensers underneath towards the rear. The instructions do not show them being fitted as a stage but later show them on so are not really useful, box art shows none painting guide has them fitted and googling is frustratingly inconclusive. Can anyone tell me the answer?
  20. Latest kit from MFH - this will be another sleeper - got plenty on the go, but if anyone is interested on what is in the box of this latest 1/12 offering from MFH... New box design! Quite a few plastic parts Grrr - my pet MFH hate...delicate, thin parts, wrapped in tight cling film. Another minor point - MFH include templates for cutting out ali-foil, masks etc etc - but you have to cut them out yourself - which is no problem, except they are printed within the instruction booklet - ie: they have other stuff on the back - so you have to copy and print your own. No big
  21. RAF Jaguars at Red Flag exercise January 1983... XZ385, 14 sq XZ369, 14 Sq XZ356, 17 Sq XZ370, 17 Sq XZ374, 20 Sq XZ378, 20 Sq XZ394, 20 Sq XX968, 31 Sq Thanks for looking, Sven
  22. Hello, Here's my 1/72 Italeri Jaguar T.2. Nothing fancy, just the kit parts and decals. I did paint the tail stripe, because the decal provided was too short. This kit is not one of Italeri's best, imo, but in the end it looks like a Jaguar. I hope you like it. Thanks for looking, Pete
  23. After the 1/48th kits ( GR. link & A. link ). On LSM forums, the Kitty Hawk's rep, Glen "Kagnew" Coleman, confirms the company 1/32nd SEPECAT Jaguar family project. Of interest are also the words "1/32 French projects before we get into it". To be followed. Source: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=53067&p=617140 V.P.
  24. Another one that has sat on the shelf of doom for far too long. This really needs to be completed, along with... The Merc The 308 The Diablo The FIAT 500 and the Payhauler. They have not been completely forgotten. Anyway, having got that off my chest, here goes. The box top: It's a British classic. The body was primed using Halfords' red-oxide primer, then top coated with a mix of Tamiya gloss colours mixed as per the instructions. It gives a really good metallic maroon/red finish. I mixed up my own 'pink' primer for the inte
  25. Adding another to my list of Matchbox kits needing built The pre-WW2 Jaguar SS-100 Here's a bit of trivia for you; Jaguar cars started out as Squire Sidecars, building motorcycle side cars, then building car bodies on to Austin 7 chassis, then Triumph chassis. As car builders they were SS Cars. The Jaguar series was built on a Triumph chassis, the number was indicative of the car's maximum speed. Post WW2 the letters SS were associated with an evil regime so William Lyons [the company founder] dropped the SS and took up the name of its most famous pre-WW2 sports car
