Hawker Siddeley Kestrel

The model is converted from the ESCI Harrier GR.1/AV-8A kit, with a few items such as the fin and jet exhausts taken from the Aardvark Aviation kit (which I think is the same kit as being sold by Heritage Aviation today).

One of the very many projects I would like to do is build a 1/72 Kestral
Have the Tripartite markings ready.
Was goind to back date something but this seems an easier route.
Do you have a build thread/blog anywhere please?
What is the Aardvark kit like and why bash it to the Esci kit?
It looks a treat btw

The decals are from a new sheet from Vingtor Decals, which will be released this summer:
The blue background on the American sector of the Tripartite roundels is a tad too dark. Correction decals will be made, thus the sheet is held back until these are printed. The sheet will also be available in 1/48 scale, however without the handed roundels and nose markings for XS688.
