  1. Just dry fit my one, just the same
  2. I believe 60-6924 the first A12 was smoth skinned and did not have the expansion grooves machined into its skin. This was done to the later aircraft to solve the heat expansion issue.
  3. I believe it was the same light grey the underside was painted.
  4. You can relax for a bit, still have the TSR2, Beaufighter, Hurricane and a Spitfire to finish before the next Harrier gets started.
  5. Looks like the plastic wasn't fully up to temp, very grainy. Try contacting Italeri for replacement parts.
  6. Evening all, latest one finished is Airfix's Harrier GR1 kit built as an American MD AV8A of the US Marine Corp circa 1981. Built pretty much OOB less the resin seat which is the wrong one (GR3 MB not the Stencil 3) as I lost the kit one, the LAU10's from a Hasegawa weapon set and the Cta early Harrier user decal sheet. The UHF antenna on the spine was made from 0.3mm plastic card. As usual Tamiya acrylics and some basic panel line oil washes. It was going to be the Royal Thai Navy version but the resin GR3 tail that I have resembles a banana so I will have to get another GR3 kit for that one. Cta decals are nice to use, settled well and no problems coming of the backing. As usual all comment are welcome. And on the shelf with it British cousins. You can see the colour difference between the US grey and the darker British grey.
  7. Managed to find an unused pipette today so managed to finish off this one at last. Next up on the Harrier build will be the Sword T2/4 as an aircraft of the Royal Thai Navy. Will get an RFI up asap
  8. Only after the pilots became double amputee's. I lowered the cockpit tub with a 0.5mm plastic shim on both sides at the rear seat position or the seat was to high to close the rear canopy.
  9. Not much to report really, been to Germany to see the wife's family, new kitchen fitted and almost lost one of our dogs but the grumpy old sod is still here thankfully so modelling has been on hold and I have to go back to work on Monday to boot. Wheels and LAU10's are finally on as I was hoping to finish before Friday's club night but I can't spray the flat coat as I have run out of the pipettes I use for paint mixing so it will have to wait for next months meeting.

Mocked up the Vigilante's pylons on the TSR2 today, their on backwards and upside down but they look better this way. I may have to move them outwards slightly once I get hold off the MER's and Mk82's for undercarriage clearance. Still have more sanding to do on the belly as well.

    Intresting... https://www.google.com/search?q=bell+v+22+osprey&client=tablet-unknown&prmd=insv&sxsrf=ACYBGNSKLl0yNbtb_kC7vV1NZejFKofIWA:1568191488405&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj4t-zEsMjkAhVRRhUIHZZ9AR0Q_AUoAXoECBAQAQ&biw=1280&bih=800#imgrc=dLZgYZMSzBpK3M Looks different enough
