Aviation workshop or rather their re-launch Air-Graphics after Mr Madgwick served his time have recently issued the Jaguar radome.

You may see them re-do their decal sheet for Jaguars if he can get the artists who own the copyright allow him, as quite a few were left out of pocket.

So what was Madgwick serving time for Geoff ?  I notice he's still the owner/seller

Fraud?  Deception?  Something along those lines.

He defrauded his Architect company he worked for to fund the model business sideline, he meant well he had grand plans for decals, books, aftermarket bits and even resin kits but tried to get all the players to come together to do the actual work, so he left a lot of them with broken promises and empty wallets as the volume of profit from the business just isn't that great to support that many people. He tried to do like Mel or Colin but promised too much over committed and could never deliver on the returns.

Ah, the classic rob Peter to pay Paul on the assumption that something will come along to enable you to repay Peter before he notices. Very seldom happens but that's never stopped a multitude of people trying it. Happens all the time with household budgets as well.

IIRC, he lied to the architects to get the job, claiming qualifications he didn't have.

OK, Cutting edge released a fantastic update for the 1/48 SR-71 blackbird that included afterburner cans, exhaust and bits... We need something like that because the kit's cans are crap. And the cutting edge upgrade is $100 on ebay.
