1/72 Jaguar Radar Nose
« on: February 09, 2014, 01:50:34 PM »
I want to model a 1/72 jaguar with the Agave radar in the nose as India and others fly it.  Is there a conversion out there for this?

Thanks,
Evan

Yes there is but I can't remember who makes it.  It has become rather rare though.  I'd recommend using the nose off an Etendard.  It will be bother cheaper and easier to find.

EDIT: Both The Modelworks  and The Aviation Workshop appear to have made these noses 1/72 and 1/48 in the past.  I managed to get an Aviation Workshop example a couple of years ago but they were rare even then.  Both Modelworks and Aviation Workshop have gone the way of the Dodo since then.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Here at BTS, we deliver.  :smiley:
We didn't specify a timeframe, though.  :icon_beer:

"Air-Graphic Models" and "The Aviation Workshop" are the same guy, AFAIK.
Cheers,

Thanks for that, I've ordered a couple.  Now to figure out the changes to model a production Jaguar M with Agave radar; not sure if FAA or Aeronavale markings (or some other markings) would be most suitable.

Sure, I'll let you and the others know how this order turns out.  I bought several other items so we'll see what happens.
