Reveal - Airfix/Alley Cat 1/48 Javelin Mk7


Yes, I know I built the new Airfix 1/48 Javelin recently, but this one is special. The customer wanted it converted to Mk 7 XH754 using the Alley Cat resin conversion set, which involves some modifications to the wings and a replacement nose and exhaust section. And this is probably the most colourful aircraft scheme I have built in a very long time!

This project was inherited from the exceptionally talented Phil Goodier, who sadly passed away earlier this year, and I am honoured to have been asked by his wife to pick up a number of his projects. So this build is dedicated to you, Phil. Thank you for all the superb models you graced to this world. You will be dearly missed not only by your loving family, but also by all lovers of great models.
