Be gentle with me. First model built in over 20 years. Baby footsteps up to the stirrups at the momentn let alone getting back in the saddle. Look forward to your input. Colours not perfect. Be it in reality or through the camera lens.
Resin Upgrade Sets for Airfix Harrier GR. Mk.7A & GR. Mk.9A 1:72 CMK It's quite a while since Airfix's second generation Harrier kit hit the shelves, so it was something of a surprise when CMK sent these sets our way. There are six sets in total - three for the GR. Mk.7A and three for the GR. Mk9A. Together, the sets provide complete replacement parts for the cockpit and flying surfaces, as well as parts to detail the engine bay of the famous V/STOL jet. Harrier GR. Mk.7A Cockpit Set The first set contains a complete replacement cockpit. The set comprises a tub, ejector seat, sidewall details, instrument panel, coaming, rear deck, control column and rudder pedals. The resin is crisp and free of flaws. The depicition of the harnesses on the Martin Baker ejector seat is particularly impressive, and overall this is an excellent set. Harrier GR. Mk.7A Control Surfaces Set This set includes resin replacements for all of the GR. Mk.7A's control surfaces, including the slotted flaps, ailerons and the rudder. The casting is as crisp and smooth as you would expect from CMK. Harrier GR. Mk.7A Engine Set This set is slightly different to the others, as rather than improving on what is already in the kit, it provides something that the kit lacks. The set includes the upper part of the Pegasus engine, along with the relevent structural parts of the fuselage, hinged panels and LERX. This set provides a unique opportunity to turn the kit into a mini diorama - something which will make a real difference to the finished model. Harrier GR. Mk.9A Cockpit Set This is the equivalent cockpit set for the GR. Mk.9A version. Harrier GR. Mk.9A Control Surfaces Set This is the equivalent control surface set for the GR. Mk.9A version. Harrier GR. Mk.9A Engine Set This is the equivalent engine set for the GR. Mk.9A version. Conclusion CMK can be relied upon to turn out some good quality resin, a fact to which these sets testify. Detail is top-notch, casting is flawless and I have no doubt that the fit will be equally good. If you have the Airfix Harrier in your stash, then these sets will be well worth picking up. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
