  SEPECAT Jaguar T2 XX842 of 41 Sqn based at RAF Coltishall in 1977. Fantastic model of the 2 SEATER Jag finished in low visibility grey and green camo with the sqns famous red cross of Lorraine markings. Really does have to be seen to be appreciated. Limited to only 2180 models, several of which are now de-certificated. This is original, complete and extremely hard to find.

Length 9.75 inches Wingspan 4.25 inches

For training Jaguar pilots, all the Jaguar squadrons were allocated a handful of Jaguar T.2 two-seaters, which have been pooled among the Jaguar squadrons between major servicing and overhaul. When they initially re-equipped with the Jaguar in 1977, XX842 was operated by 41 Squadron, and is shown in the camouflage and markings of that time.

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.
