That's looking really good now, so it does...............  ;)

You do realise that you can't arm it with Sidewinders as there are no snakes in Ierland!

Am I the only one who can see this aircraft with a Gannet-type turbo-prop set-up? 

I dunno why, but for some reason when I first looked at the first pic, that was all my mind's eye would let me see.

Now I want to build one, but I've already got such a build list  ...
I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

What about hanging some Firestreaks on it?

Seriously considered it but Iím trying to keep the backstory as credible as possible and it doesn't really lend itself to Irelandís tight budget paying for the integration of a whole new weapon.  It will get some US assistance with upgrades though so it will be shown c.1973 carrying AIM-9Es.  Should be done tomorrow. Down to fiddly bits.
So I got that going for me...which is nice....
