India Republic Day



Greetings, may I present you my Sepecat Jaguar Darin, Jaguar has been in service since early eighties after defeating the Mirage F1 and Saab Viggen, as the sole user of the aircraft currently it is being continuously being upgraded and these upgrade aircraft are known as the Darin and Darin III being the latest and will service for another 10-15 years.

Talking about the model, the model was build from the Hasegawa Jaguar, the build was smooth and relatively trouble-free. The nose is homemade and I use a leftover cone from another model and sand shape the nose to look like the Darin nose. The aircraft could have built sooner but have to pause due to decal, the kit one wasn't the one we use, I designed and printed the stencils and applied it.

For the paint I use Tamiya Black, White and Medium Grey which I mixed to get the grey paint of the IAF which was fairly easy. I added Two LGB bombs to make it look for the role it was intended deep strike. Thank you for looking and hope you like what I have done with the kit. Cheers
