Tamiya 1/72 Jaguar GR-1.  Made in Italy which makes me think it's a reboxed Italeri kit.
You are correct in that thinking. Italeri have a re boxing arrangement with Tamiya that allows easier access for Italeri to the Japanese market for some of its 1/72nd aircraft kits. It also allows Tamiya to fill gaps cheaply in its own line up.

And it's a LOT better than the rather ancient Airfix offering too.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

bought from my "local" hobbycraft store

Hu 35 Gloss Varnish

Hu 120 Light Green

For some reason I didn't have the gloss varnish and I am running out of the light green

You must have passed pretty close to me as you went over the Severn Bridge, you should have waved as you went past.#

It's a LONG way from Canada just to get a car serviced I'd have thought?  ;)

It's the resin and white metal kit. Got a 1/72 Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird in the stash, might alter it to look similar.

If you had the money to buy one of these;

You have to keep the shipping crate it comes in.  That's because when you want to service it, you have to send it back to the factory ---

Just got another Airfix Beaufighter in Fenwicks of Newcastle. This one will be Dutch but not sure if NEIAF with the "National Flag" style markings as I have a sheet for Dutch Mitchells or as an RAF Coastal Command squadron returning home after the War with orange triangles replacing the RAF roundels. Again I have a Coastal Command sheet with a Dutch Sqd on it - I think ? I'm a long way from home at the mo

'Small' addition: the bloody ENORMOUS 1:48 HobbyBoss YF-23. Replaces the TSR2 as a strike aircraft in the near future after a valiant career. That's the basic back-story anyway!
