Hauled it out of a drawer today and found there are no instructions with it. Also no decals, but I've got plenty of choices in my collection. So if anyone has a copy that they could scan and post, I would be most grateful. Tried looking on-line, no joy.

I think I have, I'll check in a bit.

But it's pretty simple and you could probably build it by instinct.
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

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

Got them in my hand now. I'm in the UK, so post will probably be slow. Maybe e-mail scans to you?

Please let me know. I'm going to be out of the house a fair bit today, so if replies are slow in coming, don't panic.

Regarding decals, bear in mind that real-life RAF Javelins had a non-standard, very large fin flash covering practically the whole of the front lower quarter of the fin, presumably so that it could be seen from high angles past the T-tail. If you want those, I doubt that you'll find them on anything except a Javelin sheet, since they have a diagonal edge to match the fin leading edge. If you want them and you can't get decals, then their size actually works to your advantage, since it should be possible to either mask and paint them, or to make them out of individual lengths of generic decal stripe.

Thanks, looks like Weaver has some he's e-mailing to me. The kit was purchased at a show, and already started by a previous owner, so I also need to ensure that all the parts are with it. Looks like it, but you can never be sure.
