  1. McDonnell-Douglas (McAir) and the Naval Aviation Test Center (NATC) deployed to the Edwards AFB to conduct stability and control flight test near Rogers Dry Lake. While a relatively rare occurrence, it was possible that engines might "flameout" due to compressor stall as a result of high angle of attack and/or yaw disturbing the airflow into the intakes. The Edwards airspace had four test areas designated within flameout landing distance of the local dry lake beds (Rogers or Rosamond) should the need arise for an emergency landing. While the "spin areas" might also be within flameout landing d
  2. I fancied a quick aircraft build without too much effort, so found this rather nasty harrier in the stash, there's so much wrong with this kit - shape of the nose, wings, pylons, errors in the gun pods, general lack of detail etc that is also hard to correct, so I was never going to build it properly. Instead I just lashed it together as a quick, fun build to get me back into aircraft, which it mostly was in fairness, apart from the canopy which has a big prominent seam down the centre and didn't fit especially well. I think It looks mostly OK and a bit like a harrier (from a distance!) s
  3. AV-8B Resin Accessories for Hasegawa Kit 1:72 Brengun Hasegawa's AV-8B Harrier has been around for a good while now. It represents classic Hasegawa in the sense that it provides everything you need to build a high quality Harrier while never going over the top in terms of engineering or detail. The kit has also been re-released by Revell on at least one occasion. Now Brengun have released a swathe of resin goodies to update and upgrade an already impressive kit. AV-8B Nozzles (BRL72183) This set pro
  4. Hi, after a couple of Mirage kits, I'm back to my beloved Harrier. This time she will be an AV-8B Plus finished in the Marina Militare Italiana (Italian Navy) markings. The kit is far from being a good model. Many details are completely missing or bad represented. Fortunately there are many aftermarket detail stes available for the interior and exterior. I've started dry fitting the cockpit tub and the front undercarriage bay from Aires. Very good fit and tremendous amount of details here. After a good ses
  5. On January 25, 1985, VMA-331 became the first fully operational AV-8B Harrier II squadron in Marine Corps service. The squadron deployed on the USS Nassau (LHA-4) to the Persian Gulf and eventually flew 243 sorties, dropping 256 tons of ordnance, and became the first Marine Attack Squadron to conduct combat operations from a Landing Helicopter Assault ship. While supporting Operation Desert Storm, an AV-8B Harrier II from the squadron was shot down by an SA-7 over Safwan, Iraq. This build was a passion for the aircraft a turning point in aviation technology as the AV-8B second gen
  6. Harrier GR.7/9 Limited Edition (1166) 1:48 Eduard What does one say about the Harrier? It is the world's first and most successful operational Vertical Take-Off/Landing VTOL fighter aircraft that was originally designed back when jet engines themselves were new technology, so vectoring thrust was almost unheard off. Starting with a test rig nicknamed "The Flying Bestead", the engineers at Hawker Siddeley and Bristol Engines began design work on this inventive and ground-breaking jet during a period when Duncan Sands was putting the brakes on many manned aircraft projects in the mistaken b

  9. These images were taken in 1983 and ’84. McDonnell-Douglas brought AV-8B ship #2 (USN Bu. No. 161397) out to Edwards AFB a few times to accomplish stability and control evaluations. Three different missions are shown here. The January 1983 mission has two Mk 82 500-lb Snakeyes on the centerline station. The June 1983 mission has the Snakeyes on the two outboard wing stations. On the February 1984 mission, all the pylons are empty. From our T-38A on his left wing over Tehachapi foothills. We do a ‘clean ‘n’ dry check”’ before test maneuvers are executed

  11. Harrier GR.7/9 (648384for Hasegawa) 1:48 Eduard Brassin The Hasegawa Harriers are well-respected kits, but as moulding technology moves on, there are areas that start to look a little below-par, and coupled with the paucity of weapons in the box, a lot of modellers like to make some upgrades to the basic kit when building. Eduard have a number of sets available for this kit, and they have now released this set that contains a number of them, concentrating their efforts on the most obvious areas. The set arrives in the familiar Brassin rectangular profile box, wi

  13. Not enough tag space for all of these :-) Eight new TRUMPETER releases! Three new MERIT INTERNATIONAL releases! We mentioned the Russian Smerch in an earlier post. In shops now, but only a few from this first batch left. 1/72nd scale MiG-29A Fulcrum (Izdeliye 9.12) is a new tool, topped up with rockets from Su-27 kit TM01645. 1/48nd scale JL-9 Plateau Eagle is a new tool, with additional ordnance and pylons from the J-10 (TM02841) and fuel tanks fro the J-7 (TM02858). 1/350th scale USS KITTY HAWK CV-63 is a new tool. The single-piece hull and single-peck flight deck have to be seen, meas

  15. Ejection Seats Quickboost 1:48 Quickboost have been really busy lately releasing all manner of add-on parts for various models. These three sets provide resin replacement ejection seats for three different aircraft. Each seat is moulded in grey resin and covered in some really great detail. Each seat is packaged in the standard poly sleeve but fortunately they don’t appear to have suffered any damage. All the modeller has to do is to remove them from their casting blocks, give then a nice delicate paint job and fit them to the chosen cockpit. F-100D Super Sabre (QB 48 509) is quit
  16. Harrier AV-8B II - 162074 / VL-07 of VMA-331 "Bumblebees", USMC, c1986 The latest model (build 13) in my Harrier Project is an AV-8B II of VMA-331 "The Bumblebees". It's an attempt to copy the aircraft as shown in some photos in the World Air Power Journal (Vol.6, 1991) and Andy Evans' BAe/McDonnell Douglas Harrier book (Crowood Press). As VMA-331 only flew the original AV-8B II variant before being disbanded, it was also an appropriate choice of VMA as I ultimately want to a Harrier from each VMA. The aircraft depicted, 162074 / VL-07, was later re-manufactured as an AV-8B II Plus, 165311. T
  17. Hi all, Just put the finishing touches on this, first time I have put anything up for inspection for a while, had a bit of time out from building, but got on and finished this at the weekend. Its the Revell boxing of the old Monogram kit, so not a lot in the way of recessed detail on the kit, its built OOB and I actually enjoyed this. I couldn't bring myself to attempt a re-scribe as with my skill level it would just end up looking worse lol, but may bag myself a cheap Airfix GR3 or SHAR and have a go on that. cheers Simon
