As far as converting the back seat IP, that looks to be a simple conversion. The ADF panel looks quite easy to replicate. The two large screens would be easy to pull off with some styrene girders.


Yeah I'll have to have a play with some of the pastels that I have at home.

It shouldn't be too hard - I'll have to cut off the top deck of whats there and remodel it.


Or if you really want to cheat, the Eduard PE Interior set will fix that instrument panel as well.

Gotta love changes from variant to variant on the electronics in the modern fighters. Great work here so far I’ll be watching for more!

Back from the dead!!!!!!

:dancing: :dancing: :dancing: :dancing:

Well not really - well maybe...

So far all I've done is repaint the cockpit base colours and order some GR.1 decals for the Jaguar - rather than the GR.3 markings I have in the box.

Let’s see it! I was wondering about this one the other day. Nice to see it’s back... maybe... lol!

Thanks Carlos - it's just been waiting it's turn.

I spent a bit of time today cutting down the rear IP - to change it from the GR.1 type that was included in the kit (thanks to the history of this kit - being based on the GR.1/IDS) to more what a F.3 should look like - which is this...

Before...

After..

Once I've added paint and decals it should look good enough under the canopy.

Cheers!
