Good morning! Today the sun was shining, so a good opportunity to take a few pictures of my Sea Harrier. It's the well-known kit from Italeri/esci, even built with the kit decals. Some parts are from Pavla, like the cockpit, intake with open doors and the exhausts. Colours were white and EDSG from gunze, the Sea Eagles are from a Hasegawa kit. Thanks for attention! Alex
Hi Everyone, This afternoon I picked up a Tamiya 1/48 scale Royal Navy Sea Harrier FRS.1 from my local Hobbycraft for £11.04 after using a 15% off voucher I got for registering one of my e-mail addresses with the hobbycraft club. Now a short while ago, bentwaters81tfw quoted my post and said that I have been robbed by the shop. I would just like to know if I should be taking this kit back i.e. are there problems with the kit ? If anyone can advise why bentwaters81tfw has said that I would like to know (I have posted on the thread asking him, but he is offline). I will take it back on Bank Holiday Monday if I need to take it back. I have also put a post on this thread and would like your opinions. Thanks as always. Rick
Sea Harrier FRS.1 Etch Detail Sets for Italeri Kit 1:72 Eduard The Italeri Sea Harrier is a tool first produced in 1983 under the ESCI name, but it still stands strong next to its rivals some 30 years on and gets favourable reviews from the modelling community. Eduard have released this set, however I suspect you can use most of the parts in an alternative kit if you have one of those in the stash already. As per usual, there is the full set on offer and a cheaper alternative known as the Zoom range. Set 73457 If you’re familiar with these sets, then you’ll know the format. Typically, with the full set you get a cockpit enhancement and usually, undercarriage and other external improvements too. Included in this set are the following: Seat belts, ejector handles, seat back pad (coloured Self Adhesive etch) Main panel, side panels including throttles, rudder pedals, HUD (coloured S.A etch) Rear cockpit, canopy frame, canopy detonation chord, windscreen wiper Replacement u/c doors, airbrake panel Exhaust blast plates Various exterior panels, antennas and tie down loops Boarding ladder Weapon mounting points on the pylons As normal with etch sets, there are some fine parts that will take some skill to handle and fix in place. Fitting the canopy denotnation chord will need to careful gluing, perhaps Kleer may be the best option. That said, apart from this rather delicate operation, the remaining parts are relatively straight forwards in assembly Set SS457 Just containing the pre-painted self adhesive fret as pictured above, you get most of the cockpit enhancements that are in the above set including the following: Seat belts, ejector handles, seat back pad (coloured Self Adhesive etch) Main panel, side panels including throttles, rudder pedals, HUD (coloured S.A etch) Rear cockpit, canopy frame, canopy detonation chord, windscreen wiper Conclusion For Harrier fans these are great packs. Obviously budget plays a part in your selection, but the larger pack with boarding ladder and many external improvements is the must have to produce a great little diorama. In fact I’ve got slightly distracted planning what mine will look like !! Review sample courtesy of
