This will be my first of a few entries into this GB. They may not be completed in time, but I am not too fussed about that.

I will be building the Italeri Sepecat Jaguar.

Build Plan

I will build the kit completely OOB. I will paint it in either the Gulf war scheme or the usual RAF camo scheme. I have not yet decided.

I've just realised. I built this exact kit, a little while back. It turns out nice, well I think so, I'll have to check.

That looks a very nicely moulded kit you have there and its going together very well.

Looking good. I'm building the Revell (ex Airfix) 1/48 Jaguar at the moment. I hope the parts fit better on your kit.Mines using up a fair amount of filler.

Nice work Bob, coming along very nicely.

Thanks all,
Dave, in regards to this kit, I should clarify, this kit needed a lot of filler. A lot of detail had to be re scribed as well because of the sanding I needed to do. The fit on the parts was not really the best. I do like challenging kits though as it really tests my modelling skills and patience.

Here is the latest update. The kit is almost complete now

Panel lines were highlighted using copic multiliner pens - sepia colour

Here are the copic multi liner pens used, this set comes in many sizes - the number representing the size of the tip in mm
