  1. Somewhere in the South Atlantic May 1982... This is my 1/350 build of three of the ships in the RNs Falklands task force, there are two scratch builds, and one minor conversion, plus huge amounts of detail on all three. I don't want to think about the amount of time I've spent over the past 5 1/2 years... Starting with the complete scene: From left to right: HMS Broadsword, HMS Hermes and HMS Yarmouth HMS Hermes and Yarmouth are both scratch built from plans Weathering on both was closely based on photos from the time to get the weather worn look of two of the oldest ships
  2. It was a strong rumour, now confirmed by R. Chung, the Kinetic boss himself, in ARC forums. After the Sea Harrier FRS.1 (link) & FA.2 (link), the two seat Harrier T.2/T.4/T.8 (link), Kinetic is quite logically to produce 1/48th Hawker Siddeley/BAe Harrier GR.1/GR.3 kits. So time to open a dedicated thread, I think. Source: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=287539&view=findpost&p=2798826 V.P.
  3. My latest build 1:48 harrier FA2. Nice model with lots of manufacturing defects (thus the very short body gear)
  4. Here's a couple of cheeky pics of my recent build, The Kinetic 1/48 BAe Sea Harrier FRS.1 More pics when I've had chance to take some more.... @NG899 Many thanks for all your help Nick..
  5. I'm a bit late to the party here but I have been concentrating on finishing my builds for a couple of other GB's, now that they are safely out of the way I have a 2 week window before my next GB starts so I thought it was about time I joined in the fun here. I had originally planned on doing something else (a Spanish AH-1G) but seeing as how I talked my model club into building things along the theme of test aircraft I thought that I had better start building some myself and what better way than to combine it with the In The Navy GB and I remembered some excellent pictures taken and share
  6. I've had Hasegawa's 1/48 Harrier GR.7 in the stash for a good few years now, just looking at me and wondering when it will get started. For an aircraft that I - as well as a lot of us on here I'm sure - have such an affection for, I feel bad that I haven't gotten around to it sooner. I feel one of the reasons I haven't started this kit sooner is that I had plans to throw lots of goodies at it in an attempt to get it looking as good as I can manage. I've been collecting AM bits and bobs for a while now, and feel that I have everything now that I need to build an a/c that I wi
  7. Here's another build from a couple of years ago. This is the Airfix Gr.9 kit in 1/72 scale painted with a brush using Humbrol enamels. The kit went together really well with no issues. This kit is built straight from the box using the kit decals supplied. I love a fully loaded Gr.9, really looks like in means business. Hope you enjoy.
  8. Hi all. Im planning on starting a 1/48 Harrier GR9 soon, and was planning on modelling a certain aircraft (ZG511/82) After a quick search, I haven't been able to find a decal sheet that covers this particular Harrier, so I figured I'd make the serials and tail no. off of other sheets. I've gotten by with previous builds in 1/72 with the Xtradecal Letters/Numerals etc. sheets, but for the life of me, I can't find anything in their range that covers what I need! Does anybody know of a sheet either by Xtradecal or another company that offers the right size letters in 1/48
  9. I finished this towards the end of last year, but have only just got around to taking some photographs. Swords excellent rendition on a Harrier T.Mk.4. More or less out of the box, but I did open up the upper auxiliary doors on the intakes as the kit parts were moulded in the closed position, which isn't accurate for an aircraft that is parked up. I used Vallejo Model Air paints and kit decals. I picked this scheme as it was the temporary arctic scheme. I painted all the upper surfaces in the usual green and grey, then overpainted the green with white on the areas visible from abov
  10. Hi guys, here are some more of the 'lock down, photos processed' collection, this time from Gillespie Field which is the reserve and storage centre for the San Diego Air & Space Museum. The F-14 stars in the new Top Gun movie and the A-6 cockpit was used in Flight of the Intruder (great film for A-6 fans!)

  11. Harrier GR3, 4 Squadron, Royal Air Force Germany This is the Airfix new tool 1/72 Harrier with CMK resin engine and nozzle set, Freightdog replacement fin, Airwaves RBF pennants and Pavla aftermarket seat; the decals are from the kit. Built and displayed to depict a deployed operations field maintenance task on the Rolls Royce Pegasus engine with MT, GSE and other clutter to recreate a typical scene in RAFG during the 1980’s. The camouflage netting was omitted for clarity and all reference photos showed field maintenance without it anyway. The Bedford MK bowser is the ex-
  12. Ok I'm calling this one done! Trumpter 1/32 Harrier GR7 Piero's Resin: Nose, Pylons (1A,7A & 4) BOL Rails and AN-ALE40 faring Custom 250gal Resin Tank fronts Tim Perry CBLS 100 Revell Matra 144 SNEB Pods Resin BL755 Cluster bombs Flightpath CBU87 B/B & AIM9L AQN Rounds Eduard Cockpit and External Photoetch Decals from spares box, Airframe or custom printed Resin Wheels, Mk12H Seat Be gentle, first "proper" build after 10 year modelling hiatus! And yes, I did work on
  13. Just finished this one from Airfix, nice fit joy to build. straight forward one just out of the box. Cheers Jes
  14. After a lot of help from fellow modellers on this site through this thread I now have enough information to at least start a build. In fact I am going to build two AV-8C's, One as a normal service machine and the other as 719 operated by NASA So let's post an out of focus picture so show what I am starting with Hopefully some progress pictures later today, mayby not as I am not the fastest builder in the world Gondor
  15. 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
  16. Hi all, I've been looking at the decal sheet on the Italeri web page: https://www.italeri.com/en/product/2854 I cannot see the white "XV741" in white for the nose. has anyone got this kit and would like to comment? The canopy, according to the site, is the best I have seen
  17. For a modeling competition last year, I thought about building a Hawker Siddeley Kestrel FGA.1 myself. Because there's nothing on the market that one can buy. If you're interested, I'd be happy to republish the building process here.
  18. OK here goes, after a 15 year sabbatical its time to get stuck into a kit I wanted back in the 90's after serving on IV(AC) Squadron in RAF Germany this is the intended outcome: Using The Trumpter kit: It will prove an interesting trip down memory lane, trying to remember details etc and also the need to fabricate decals for a green GR7! I'll be using Piero's resin bits too and will have a few parts spare bits if anyone's interested (modified strake to tale the pod etc) Load wise I'm torn between making a set of CBLS 200's and a pre-OpWarden fit using US CBU 87 b/b cluster bombs. I'l
  19. Hello! One and a half year ago I started a Harrier GR.3, but I never got round to finish it. I think it's time to do so now! Main reason is that I want to paint something, and since my Tiffie is still in the detailing stages the urge to shoot some paint around is big. But first, a recap of what's been done so far! Here's what I'll use for this build (i have another GR.3 that will be decked out with more AM stuff) Yes, that's a replacement fin from Freightdog. 2mm too short height for the Airfix one, and not something i'd be bothered fix by myself. I started with the bits that goes bang
  20. Hello all, Here's my last build of the year. It's the 2002 Revell rebox of the Hasegawa Harrier GR.7 in 1/72. As it turned out it's more like an AV-8B with a new nose part, which doesn't make it quite a GR.7. I added an aftermarket (undersized, sadly) seat from Pavla, Aires exhausts, and Air Graphics BOL rails. I also scratchbuilt the ECM/RWR/whatever things they are at the tail fairing. Painted with Hataka lacquers, which was a nice experiment, and used the kits decals. I decided to paint some bits in the older green colours after finding these nice photos of a base visit in 1997
  21. ... or Happiness is Vectored Thrust! Firstly, I am a fan of the Harrier but mostly the early variants before the airframe was “afflicted” by the lumps and bumps associated with the development of an aircraft. As you may have guessed by my screen name, I’m particularly fond of the prototype aircraft, the P.1127 and P.1127/2, otherwise known as (the/a) Kestrel. To my eye, these are the definitive forms of this aircraft concept/configuration, with their aluminium finish and long pitot tubes sticking out the front, ready for the jousting tournament. I’ve recently returned t
  22. Hello all! This is the first of two "jump jets" I've been building for the last six months or so, the 1/72 Airfix Harrier GR.3. The kit goes together well and the only modification was to use the eduard etch set for the cockpit (which you can't see much of anyway!). It's airbrushed with Tamiya acrylics and weathered using white, brown and black artists oil paints. The decals seemed quite thick and took a lot of persuasion to settle down, especially the roundels just behind the intakes. Some of them have also silvered a bit but I guess that's on me for not getting a smooth enough gloss coat dow
  23. 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
  24. Our latest leisure activities in Gatow were quite fruitful. There are some interesting exhibits in hangar no.7 - e.g. Mirage III and Harrier GR.1. We appreciate a lot the possibility of making a very detailed walkaround. Below is the effect - the prototype frets (for Mark I kits) are currently bathing in the acid accompanied by two more sets: Su-27 (Trumpeter) and MiG-17 (recent F-Toys). Stay tuned! Best regards, Marek
  25. Hi all, On the now defunct sg-etuo website (spotter's goup RAF Gütersloh) I remember seeing a picture of an airborne Harrier GR.3 in a complete (wrap-around) winter camouflage, taken, if I remember correctly, May or July 1983. The camo pattern of this Harrier differed from the usual (say 1 Sqn) GR.3s in that the grey areas were painted over instead of green - resulting in a white - green pattern. Does anyone know of which aircraft I speak? I apparently never saved the image but I hope someone here has, or at least has a strong memory of the serial. Cheers!! Jay
