1/48 Airfix Jaguar

Gallery Article by Yusof


I recently completed my 48th scale Airfix Jaguar.  The model was built with help of some Eduard Photo Etch, which happens to be my first attempt at using PE.

The overall fit for the kit is ok, filler was needed on the fuselage and lower wing joint.  I'm not sure of the accuracy of this kit, but it certainly looks like a Jaguar to me.

I used the kit decals for the Gulf War version and airbrushed my Jaguar with Humbrol 250 and gave it an oil wash.  For weathering I used Gunze acrylics.  Sadly the ALQ-119 Jamming Pod was MIA (Missing In Action) while I was building the Jag and a search the entire house didn't turn up anything.

Pictures were taken with a rented Canon digital camera.  I must admit I'm not that good at taking pics, but I'll try to contribute a better article next time....

I hope you modelers enjoy my  not so good still green modeling.

Thanks to ARC.
