  1. Hi all, following on from my 1/72 Harrier GR3 that I posted here in the last week or so, I've since completed another one of Airfix's Starter Sets. I know there've been a few of these on here over the years, but here's my effort. Build The kit went together pretty well, some really fiddly bits and I broke a number of parts, namely the rear undercarriage, pitot tube and the front gear door. They went back together pretty easily but still a minor inconvenience. As someone had mentioned before the part joining the rear gear doors was a bit of a fight. No fit issues other than I think the top of the wings stick up slightly before the tail section. Paint Humbrol Enamels used throughout other than an attempt at some drybrushing in the cockpit. I used Acrylics that came in the pack for this. A Revell Starter Airbrush was used and Tamiya grey primer from a rattle can. Over the top of the primer I did a layer of Humbrol 60(matt red) followed by the gloss coat (Humbrol 19). It seemed to go on really well but took ages to dry. The finish wasn't as smooth as I'd have liked, but I put that down to the airbrush and my inexperience. I also left the model in the front room to dry as it is warmer than our conservatory and because it was still tacky a few bits of dog hair and other assorted airborne bits suck to it. Lesson Learnt. Finish Really enjoyed this kit to get me into the swing of things. I know it's not perfect but I've learnt a lot for next time (An Airfix 1:48 Harrier GR. 3). Feedback, is very welcome, so go nuts Thanks for looking
