  Corgi Aviation Archive AA35401: SEPECAT Jaguar GR.Mk 1 serial XX970 of 6 Sqn, RAF based at Coltishall, England, 1990. Although non limited this model is now highly sought after.

Length 9.25 inches Wingspan 4.75 inches



Designed to meet a British requirement for an advanced supersonic jet trainer and a French requirement for an inexpensive trainer and light attack aircraft, the SEPECAT Jaguar first flew on September 8, 1968. Early in its development the trainer requirement was dropped and the Jaguar went on to become a capable close air support, tactical reconnaissance and strike aircraft. This swept-wing aircraft was one of the first Anglo-French military aircraft projects and was used heavily by the French Air Force, which didn't officially replace it as its main strike/attack aircraft until 2005. It also served the RAF until 2007.

Corgi's 1:72 scale Jaguars are constructed using very little plastic and feel surprisingly heavy. Both the fin and elevators are die-cast metal, a feature that is unusual in most similar models. Among the model's notable features are movable elevators that rotate in unison, simulated stainless-steel heat shielding around the engine exhaust and the separately applied v-shaped transparent lens cover on the nose camera. The snug-fitting large, metal landing gear installs quickly and easily for ground display. The mold allows for the single-seat and the long, slender two-seat trainer variants to be produced.
