Re: Wooksta's Current wants 2020: Jaguar laser nose

Currently after a Jaguar nose section that houses the laser designator, should be spare in the Hasegawa kit if you've built a foreign user.

One would be enough, but a spare would be helpful.

Might have one for you as I plan on doing the Indian AF version with the radar nose.

It would be from the Revell/Italeri kit though.

Either or.  I just used the Hasegawa one as an example as I know you get both noses.  I was unsure about Italeri -I thin I had one but it went a good decade or so back as I've really no interest in the Jaguar*

Anything would be helpful as it's getting spliced into a Swift front end.  If you can spare it, I'll happily take it off your hands.

As a return, I can bung you some Nigerian decals for Jaguars I know I'll never use.



*I'd thought about scratchbodging a TSR2 lead in trainer from one, using a MiG 21 wing as a scaled down TSR2 wing (and it just about it) but the intakes are that shade too different.  Still tempted though.

Now after several pairs of the three row SNEB pods from either the new tool Aifix Buccaneer or Phantoms.

Also a pair or two of RAF cluster bombs.

I might be able to help with those. How many cluster bombs and if you have a prefference, from which kit?

I'd probably need four, RAF type in service circa 1982 and as to which kit...  One of the more up to date ones.

You can have the rocket pods from the new tool Buccaneer and Phantom kits I have.

I won't be using them so I will pack and send them next week.

OK, will dig out the best cluster bombs I have for you over the weekend.

Re: Wooksta's Current wants 2020: Mirage IV wings

Currently after a set of Mirage IV wings as the ones from the III are too small for the Delta Wing Hunter.

Mirage IV wings are pretty hefty, have you thought of F-102/-106 wings?
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! :)

No, but whatever I use has to have a 60 degree sweep built in.  The Mirage III wings I thought of are too small.  Longer wings I can cut down.  The alternative is a Mirage III (or derivative) wing that comes in two halves and crucially does not have the trailing edge moulded as one piece split along the hinge line (see the Italeri Kfir to see what I mean).

TBH, I've a low bid on a relatively cheap Heller one on ebay  and what's left can be scratchbodged into a Hawker P.1129.

Incidentally, what's the wing sweep angle of a EFA Typhoon?

52 degrees, I just measured it off a plan.  ;D
