1/72 Jaguar T2: new kit by italeri

saw this kit last friday and well i just had to buy a copy this morning. it is an excellent kit. the only minor complaint is that the purist will want to replace the serials on the kit decal sheet for aftermarket ones. [the kit serials being not quite right, i think.] italeri have given a good choice of markings [6, 41 and 54 sqns] and color schemes. surprizingly the 6 sqn T2 is in desert sand.

i can't compare it to the hasegawa Jaguar T2, but it is streets ahead of the _awful_ matchbox T2. of which the only good thing was the decal sheet.

there are a large number of items for the spares box in the italeri kit, btw. though i would recommend scrapping the cluster bombs. the CBU-87s in the hasegawa weapons sets are much more accurate.
