Seems to be the business Doc.

Nicely done all around I reckon.

I am split between the base shape origin - Intruder or Sea Vixen boom ?

 Thanks for the replies, fellas - much appreciated. I didn't stop to think before I posted.

 Buzzbomb - the base is the fuselage and inner wing panels of the old Airfix Meteor, a pair of engine bells from an
 Airfix 'Star Cruiser One' kit, and a tail from a much cut down and carved up wingtip ( it looked symmetrical enough to serve. )
 from a Heller Javelin. The engine pods on the wings are rocket pods from the 1/48th Su-24 I won in our first contest.
 Finally, the spine was one of the gun pods from the 1/24 Harrier, whcih have been kicking around my spares box for a
 good quarter century.

Could be descendant of F-101.  Creative configuration and color scheme.  :smiley:

Well Kudos Craig, those parts blended so well I could not pick a few out.

Got me inspired though. as the shape works so well.
Although the "heresy" of using parts of the long venerated Airfix Star Cruiser as "bits" was a jaw dropper   ;)
