FirstLook

 

Model Alliance continues its commitment to modern RAF subjects with their latest release - Jaguar GR.1, RAF Gulf War.

Markings are supplied for twelve aircraft - including one aircraft with alternative nose art - all wearing overall Desert Pink common to Jaguars participating in the first Gulf War of 1990-91. Each aircraft has individual nose art and bomb logs too. The subjects include some of the better known aircraft that appeared in news and other media at the time, but also many that I have not seen before.

The decals are perfectly printed, in register and feature very thin carrier film. Some of the larger, colourful and complex markings are supplied with the black outline separate to ensure perfect alignment on the model.

 

 

Four sets of toned-down national markings are supplied, as are two sets of black "fake canopies: for the underside of the aircraft.

Instructions take the form of two folded, full colour, double-sided A4 sheets with illustrations and copious notes.

If you are a fan of Jaguars, or the air arms of the 1990-91 Gulf War; or if you just have a penchant for pink, these decals will be a very welcome addition to your collection!
