The Sepecat Jaguar was one of those Anglo-French joint works where the goal posts kept being moved, going for a trainer to a ground attack aircraft,
and work was also done on building a French carrier based model of the Jaguar. Revell of Germany have released a Jaguar GR.1A onto the market

Hi Darren Thanks for the review. The Jag looks like a a re-issue of the Airfix kit.

Tim it's stated as a re-issue of the Heller kit which was also released by Airfix, can be built into a descent model but does require work.

The mold has certainly had a few homes Luciano, but it's excellent to have it re-released. I'm really pleased to see this "cat" again and will certainly acquire one shortly.

Darren,
As usual, another excellent review that is fair to both the modeler, and Revell of Germany. I certainly agree with your thoughts on offering decals from the Gulf War as a way to update the kit. If I was building it, that's the option I would certainly prefer.
