  1. After my false start due to having some primer in the airbrush to use and with my Harrier now finished I have made a proper start on the Tornado, making up a few sub assemblies and attending to a plethora of pins in inconvenient places such as inside undercarriage doors, adjacent to missile fins and, unbelievably, three on the inside of each wheel. Dry fit shows there will be filler. AW
  2. Harrier GR3, XZ967 D “Donatello” 1473 Flight, Belize 1993. Built for the Helicopter, Autogyro and STOVL group build. Airfix 1/72, Freightdog resin tail fin, Pavla jet nozzles, CMK seat, Master pitot and AOA sensor, Brengun PE boarding ladder, decals from Xtradecal set X72186. My first attempt at airbrushing a disruptive camouflage scheme using blue tack worms. True to form I picked a nice easy subject, wrap around and with a complex area around the jet nozzles! I was attracted to this aircraft as Donatello was my daughter’s favourite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and here he is on the tail: Thanks for looking. AW

  4. Harrier finished today. Last few tasks, attaching the tanks, pitot, minuscule angle of attack sensor, canopy and position lights. I also added the standby UHF blade aerial just forward of the ventral fin from plastic card. More pics in the gallery. Thanks for looking and thanks to the mods for an enjoyable group build and to every one else for their great builds! AW
  5. Fantastic collection. Wouldn’t want to be dusting them all though.... AW
  6. Definitely in for a Sea Harrier. AW
  7. I’d like to join in also. I have a few potential subjects in the stash. Willi Coppens’ blue Hanriot springs to mind... AW
  8. Thanks Jabba. The decals settled nicely after being flooded with Mr Mark Softer. I only had one mini disaster, after applying the port side one, I was applying another decal a bit late and found the roundel on my left thumb! It was one of the Xtradecal ones so I simply used a kit one in its place. Nearing the finish line now, jet nozzles, cannon pods and pylons attached and she’s sitting nicely on all four feet: Thanks for looking. AW
  9. Decals completed. Underside: Starboard side: A nice two layer decal for Donatello: Thanks for looking. AW
  10. Port side and top side decals are finished, underside has only its stencils at the moment. Next job will be the starboard side and main underside markings. Decals have so far behaved themselves, the only difficulty, as usual with Harriers in my experience, has been getting the side roundel to conform to the intake. Thanks for looking. AW
