Recent intelligence files released to the public have revealed that Jackal Island* is in the possession of nuclear attack submarines. These appear to be fast, silent and efficient killers. The class of submarine is known as "Skipjackal" after the first one launched, and the follow on ships are known as "Skippy the Bush Kangaroo" "Skip to my Lou", and "Harvey Jaeckel"

The "Skipjackal" was build using various scales of Me-262s and the sail from the Revell Germany USS SKipjack" (ex Aurora). The main hull was made from a Hasegawa Me-262, with the tailplanes coming from the Monogram 1/48th scale "Schwalbe" amd a Matchbox Me-262 donating the pectoral fins. The screw came from an old Renwal USS Andrew Jackson. The paint scheme was based on actual Me-262 schemes and Tiger Sharks, and decals came from my spares bin.

*Jackal Island is the home of "the Jackal Squadron", a happy group of JMNs I had the pleasure of meeting many years ago in the great ARC Flame Wars. They were, and still are, an inspiration for my sarcastic and biting wit.

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.


Well done! It almost cries out for a sharkmouth!
