Check out the Lightning F6 from Corgi:

Able to climb faster than anything else in the skies, the Lightning was a fearsome machine and not for the faint-hearted to fly.  5 Squadron gained the Lightning with its move to RAF Binbrook in 1965, and kept it until its replacement with Tornado F3s in 1987.

This particular machine still exists, though preserved in a different color scheme. The shark’s mouth was painted on during gunnery exercises and later removed.

It's available now from Corgi in 1/72 scale:

#AA32314 - 1/72 Scale
BAC Lightning F6 5 Sqdn, RAF Binbrook 1984
