Edited (thanks Stu!).

Looks good! All three colour schemes are a bit 'What If' in this boxing, but if you get the alternate boxing, Kit No. AZ7578, you can get a 'real' one, ie. All white. Preferable for me.

That is just great Chuck, I have just now ordered one of the "real" SR-53 AZ7578 kits from Hannants.
I can now forget all about the old Airfx clunker I have been looking for for ages-don't need one !

I'll have to do that. If it's part jet, where are the intakes?

Right behind the cockpit on both sides; IIRC the jet was an auxiliary engine to get the aircraft home after the rocket fuel was exhausted and so did not have to be very big.

Thanks John, I google imaged it and see what you mean.

I've ordered the wiff boxing. One of the options is the green/grey RAF scheme and everything looks good in that!
