The latest release in the Aviation Workshop Profiles series is
SEPECAT Jaguar in Worldwide Service by Glenn Sands. The book is
illustrated by Jon
In common with earlier titles in the series, this 56 page soft-cover
book is crammed full of artwork of the subject - in this case SEPECAT
in all variants from the prototype onward in the service of Britain,
France and worldwide Air Forces. Many of the aircraft are depicted
in four-view diagrams on a full page. Jon Freeman's artwork will already
be familiar to many of HyperScale's visitors, and his work here is
clean, clear and very attractive.
Captions accompanying the profiles are excellent, covering colours, markings, operations and references to photos.
This is especially useful to modellers, as the artwork will provide the
inspiration; but a photo will identify a myriad of minutiae.
33 full-colour reference photos of some of the most striking schemes
in worldwide service are also scattered throughout the book.
The book is logically structured by operators. The first section
focuses on the Jaguar in RAF service, including 9 profiles of pink
Desert Storm aircraft, and a single grey Operation Telic example. All
RAF schemes are covered, from disruptive camouflage to greys to overall
black, including temporary and winter finishes. These RAF schemes take
up 30 pages.
Next is the Armee de l'Air covering European and North African
colours, and some spectacular special schemes.
India, Oman, Nigeria and Ecuador round out the book with yet more
colourful schemes and markings.
Model Alliance has already released a decal sheet to tie-in with this
The "On Target Profiles" series has demonstrated a proven formula for
delivering a wide selection of interesting camouflage information in an
attractive and compact format.
On Target Profiles 10, "SEPECAT Jaguar in Worldwide Service" is a terrific title that
will provide plenty of inspiration for modellers, and also specifically
points the reader to more photos and information. The separate
availability of decals from Model Alliance for some of the most
interesting subjects is a real bonus too.
