  1. Thanks Iain, but it seems the site has not been updated since 2013 and the forums section his gone. Thanks for the decals , but do you have the Sword T-Bird kit? Would it be possible to trace the three tails ( the original short tail, the AV-8A tall tail and the RAF tail with the RWR bar) for me? Bruce
  2. It does appear the vast majority of RAF/RN Harrier T.4s do not use the tail from G-VTOL or the TAV-8A. So my next question is there a source giving dimensions or a 1/72nd scale drawings showing the differences? Thanks! Bruce
  3. Hi All! I thought I had Harrier trainers sorted out but now.... I am building the Heller/Humbrol/Bobcat Harrier T.4 to have the tall tail RWR and laser nose. I have added the fan , new bang seats, cut out the air brake, blow in doors and made other improvements (we are modelers after all). But what is making me crazy is all of the T.4 decals I have have the smaller fin, with or with out the RWR antenna. Only the TAV-8A decals have the taller tail (USMC, Spain and Thailand). My question is: did the RAF use the tall tail in the T.4? And if so what serial number range? Thanks! Bruce
  4. Hi! I have an Airfix 1/72nd Harrier GR.7 and wish to convert it to a GR.9. What do I need to do? bruce
  5. Hi! I have started an Airfix P.1127 kit and need to know what colors are the gear wells, landing gear, and door interiors. Can anyone help? Bruce
  6. The problem is finding one of those sheets. I have been looking for one months, the reason for my question. Bruce
  7. Hi All! I just finished my Bobcat 2-seat Harrier as a USMC TAV-8A. My problem now are decals. I know VMAT-203 used the TAV-8A, but I cannot find any decals for one of these. So, does anyone know of another USMC Sqn. who had the TAV-8A ? I has to be a USMC T-Bird. Bruce

  9. Hi All! Thanks for the info on the AV-8B(NA) colors. While I wait for the green I ordered to arrive, I took down from the shelf of doom a Bobcat TAV-8A, Harriert2/4 kit I started 15 years ago. Well after putting a cockpit in, new landing gear, proper wing tips , and adding new nozzles and exhaust plates I have two questions: 1- Did the Marines paint their TAV-8As in the grey/green wrap around scheme? 2-Are their decals available? Thanks! Bruce
  10. Thanks for the information, it is just what I needed. Thanks again! Bruce
  11. Hi All! I need red, outlined in white codes ( 7K) for a 1/48th scale Seafire. Does anyone know where I can get them? Bruce
  12. Hi All! I am building an Airfix Av-8B (NA) from the USMC. The aircraft I wish to do has a green and grey camo, and Airfix gives only their color callouts. So, what colors are the Green and Grey (FS number would be a godsend). Thanks for looking! Bruce
  13. Thanks for the information. A late friend sent me an index for Scale Aircraft Modeling (SAM) and I found that SAM did an Aircraft in Detail for the Lynx. And better yet I have the issue! Thanks again guys! Bruce
  14. Hi All! I have some more Lynx questions... 1-What is the difference between the Lynx HAS2 and HAS 3? 2-What color is the blue found on the HAS2? The grey found on the HAS3? 3-What color is the Olive green on HA.1s? 4-What color is the French Lynx' AH.3? Thanks! Bruce
