    Harrier

    Hi everyone ! This is my build http://news.hobby.net.ua/forum/index.php?showtopic=11793 Thank you for your help !
  2. Here is my FoxOne resin 1:144 Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR.1 which I completed last year together with the T.2 I have posted recently. It represents XV778/S of No. 1 Sqn RAF, at Wittering, UK, in 1970. As with the T.2, the tail section was corrected. The mating surfaces needed some sanding so that the tail didn't sit with a slight upward pitch. The nose section has some inacurracies of shape. I just fixed the nose tip section because getting the rest right would have been too much work. This kit was already a lot of work in itself! The kit was completely painted and varnished by brush. Thanks for looking and, as always, all comments are welcome Miguel
  3. Here is my FoxOne 1:144 Hawker Siddeley Harrier T.2 which I completed last year. It represents XW266/51 of No.233 Operational Conversion Unit, RAF, at Wittering, UK, in 1975. This all-resin kit is not for the faint-hearted and required a lot of work. A major but easily-solved correction issue was the tail section. The mating surfaces needed some sanding so that the tail didn't sit with a slight upward pitch. The biggest problem I had was with the canopy which was oversize. I had to cut a section from the rear and sand down the mating surfaces just to get it to fit in place. I then had to sand the rear section to blend it with the spine. I made a mistake with the central undercarriage unit but realised too late when the CA glue had already set and didn't want to risk trying to pull it off to fix things so it dangles in mid-air! The kit was completely painted and varnished by brush. Although not 100% accurate, it comes close to the real thing and, for the time being, is the only kit in this scale covering the two-seater variants. Despite problems, I'm pleased with how it came out and I have a couple more of the TAV-8 variant in my stash. Thanks for looking and, as always, all comments are welcome Miguel
  4. 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 generation refined the V/STOL ability paving the way for the F-35B. The low visibility paint sheme I first noticed in that great cameo in "True lies" Click on photos to enlarge l
  5. Evening all, I think I'll get my metaphorical towel laid down and get a WIP thread started now After spotting a Trumpeter GR7 going pretty cheaply on eBay, I had the inspiration to condense a few different project ideas into one airframe. My dream for many years was to end up flying 4 Squadron Harriers. Since the Harriers have now been retired, 4 Sqn has been relegated to the training role and a variety of issues meant the RAF was no longer to be an option for me, the dream has had to end. So I've decided to put it into model form - rather immodestly with my name on the canopy and a little bit of noseart. I'll be supporting the build with the Aires (or maybe Wolfpack) cockpit, possibly Aires/Eduard extras, as well as Piero's nose if it's still available (has anyone got a means of contacting him? He's been off BM for a while), all supported with a healthy dose of scratch. I'm undecided at this point whether to stick with the kit's 65% LERX or do a version with the 100% LERX. Finally, as a little test of this forum's demographic, I'll tell you this bird is going to be named "Keelah Se'lai" Watch this space - good stuff coming soon Tim

    Airfix 1/24 Harrier gear

    If the gear on this Huge Harrier remains unchanged (I mean you keep it OOB and retractable) does the nosewheel stand properly like a Harrier nose wheel should? Or does it suspend completely down so the tyre is almost touching the fuselage?
  7. Evening all, Here is my Airfix GR9a starter kit that my daughter got me for fathers day. Its a starter kit and I still managed to get something wrong. Seems like I've got the vent pieces for the intake area the wrong way round but didn't click until it was too late. Also a few other things that aren't right but had to get it done to show the little boss. I also got the CMK resin cockpit set but only ended up using the tub,seat and main panel, didnt want to start cutting pieces off the model for the other bits and the stick wasnt as good as the one that came with the kit. Well anyway here it is and lets hope it dont offend your eyes too much lol.
  8. Finally I can post this build. The Eduard Ltd Edition Harrier GR 7 using the Hasegawa moulds and a spot of Eduard magic makes this kit one of my all time favourites: and I am honoured the build made it into November's issue of Airfix Model World. Here are a few more pics that didn't make it into the publication..
  9. With the hawk awaiting a full bottle of primer to arrive, and a week of annual leave in hand, it's time to get a second aircraft onto the bench. The Hawk was an OOB build to get me by, but this Harrier has a few extras to test me and so I can learn a few things as I go. I've gone with the Eduard rebox of what I believe is the Hasegawa Harrier. I've picked up some Brassin and Eduard accessories as you can see, They include a THERMA poem Sniper ATP, UK RBF tags and a step ladder. Although I'm left wondering if the UK use(d) ladders like this? The set comes with Cartograf decals for the following 6 designs: As well as the standard array of sprues: It also comes with a correct resin seat, to frames of photo-etch parts (one in full colour), new wheels and a sheet of pre cut masks. Cheers James
  10. I took a drive down to Yeovilton today, to get some data on the buildings for a dio I'm doing, and saw a Harrier being moved towards the FAAM. I didn't have my camera with me so I had to use my mobile phone. It took a few goes, moving the aircraft in and back out before it finally went in! Mike Back out again! Mike
  11. In my opinion the Harrier was one of the greatest aircraft of all time, with its revolutionary design and brilliant (British) engineering leading the way which has only now been followed by the costly, troubled and prohibitively expensive F-35. Not only did the Harrier serve with distinction for over 40 years, it helped ensure the freedom of UK citizens on the Falklands and fought for freedom in the middle east, before our short-sighted, penny-pinching and ignorant politicians prematurely retired what is still a vastly capable aircraft. One of the first batch of Harriers to enter service, XV748 was delivered to the RAF's Harrier OCU in May 1969, before transferring to number 1 squadron at Wittering. It was converted to a GR.3 in July 1974, and survives to this day at the Yorkshire air museum, Elvington. This new tool Airfix kit is absolutely superb, and highly recommended! Parts fit together really well and the attention to detail and accuracy is fantastic. The model is built OOB except for the slight serial change to represent a Harrier that still survives. (If anyone knows what tail code XV748 wore with 1 squadron please can you let me know?!)
  12. Hi all Here is my take on the 1/48 Kinetic Harrier T.4 Finished it a few weeks ago but haven't got round to taking any pics until today. Its built straight out of the box with the exception of the scratch built intake blanks. and while the suns shining I took a pic of the T.4 with my other 48th Harriers.

    1/48 Kinetic Harrier T4 Finished!!

    Time to stake my place in this GB with kinetic's excellent new 1/48 2 seat Harrier. I don't need to give much of an introduction to this kit as there have already been some great reviews and builds here on Britmodeller so you will already know that it is a very nice kit indeed so no doubt any problems or mistakes will be my own. Here is the ubiquitous box top shot; And the sprues all tightly packed inside and still sealed; The options available from the kit; And the very comprehensive decal sheet; As you can see there are markings for every operator of first gen Harriers on there and pretty much any one built can be made from it, which is good as as per usual I will not be sticking to an out of the box example and want to do something a bit different and having a liking for winter camo schemes have found this; Now if I can find a picture or serial number of one of the T4's which went with 1 squadron on one of there Norway deployments and received a proper wrap around job I will build that one instead. And here are some of the references I will be using; Hope to make a start on Saturday so hopefully won't be too long before the next update. Thanks for looking in. Craig.
  15. Just done with this little 'un for the Hawker GB here on the forum and happy how it turned out for an ancient kit. The short build thread is here if you're so inclined but to recap: Kit: Esci 1/72 AV-8A Matador Build: Tamiya tape for seatbelts, opened the intake flaps but rest OOB. Paints: White from a rattle can. Light Gull Grey mixed from Revell Acrylics (yes, I do that!) and applied with hairy stick. Klear, Flory Models Wash and Satin varnish. Pencil for some of the panel lines. Decals: From the kit after two weeks in the window. And alongside an Italeri (ex Esci) Royal Navy Sea Harrier in Black 14 markings built a couple of years back. Really enjoyed it and might try to squeeze in another build in the Harrier family soon. Thanks for looking! Dermot
  16. 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 session of paint the resin parts are ready to be glued inside the front fuselage. The plastic parts needs to be rescribed and detailed here and there on both side. CIAO! Piero
  17. Just about finished, this is my Sword 1/72 Harrier T4N built to represent XW268 as it sits today at the Norwich Aviation Museum, Norfolk. The kit has been chopped about as appropriate and there is the addition of an Airfix IFR probe which was kindly donated to me. Ignore the base, as this is just something rough for it to sit on until I can do a better one! The model has been painted by hand using Humbrol enamels and Model Color acrylics. The tarp over the cockpit area is a piece of 5p supermarket carrier bag over a plastic strip frame. I had all manner of problems with the Sword kit not least the undercarriage. Overall, very few parts actually fit; though to be fair, in the end, I didn't use much filler. That being said, there were a few times when it nearly got thrown against the wall. The decals are from the kit, spares box and home-made.
  18. After the Sea Harrier FRS.1 (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234990951-sea-harrier-frs1-148/) and FA.2 (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234968544-sea-harrier-fa2-148/) Kinetic is to release a 1/48th BAe Harrier T.2/T.4/T.8 kit - ref.

  19. For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be in the RAF. On my bedroom wall was this poster Flying wasn’t for me, short sightedness and hay fever ruled me out, but driving, now that’s something I could do. MTD none of this new Logs driver rubbish. 22 years passed in the blink of an eye, but so many great memories. Whilst searching on the Tinterweb, I stumbled across this, Now this gives me an idea, a quick rummage through the stash and hey presto Harriers have always been a favourite aircraft of mine for some reason, and I’m used to them in kit form. In fact this is the last one I “built” You can see it on the back of my truck.
  20. Hello everyone, I have just bought the very nice ESCI Sea Harrier FRS1 kit. I would like to depart a little bit from the ubiquitous Falkland War camo, and the late Indian FRS Mk51 camouflage has caught my eye : While the tanks and moving canopy look like they still are painted EDSG and white, I have no clue about the main camo colour. Does any one of you know what is the colour used for this camo, and a corresponding model paint equivalent? Are the undersides the same colours (could not find any picture)? And by the way, what are the main visible differences between FRS1 and late FRS51 (beside the weaponry which I am not going to use on my model)? Thanks in advance!

    Sea Harrier.

    Hi folk's last entry(probably) will be the re-vamped Sea Harrier as I believe Matchbox tinkered with the mold from the original,I built the hi viz original but not this boxing as I lost interest in jet's many moons ago,another seven quid special from King Kit should arrive soon. This is the boxing I've ordered.
  22. BAe Harrier GR.7 No.1 Squadron - Royal Air Force - Bardufoss Air Station (Ex. Snow Falcon) 2004 1/48 Revell With the vast majority of recent RAF aircraft adorning not so attractive grey on grey schemes, non standard schemes tend to catch the eye. Whilst going through my Dad's images from the early 2000's there are a number of images of white winter camo Jaguar's, Tornados and a few Harriers. Cue a project that I am glad to say I am one model into, recreate a series of winter deployment camo aircraft! The first of which comes from Revell's rebox of the Hasegawa GR7/9 kit. Marked as a 1 Squadron aircraft from the final Harrier deployment to Bardufoss, Norway for Exercise Snow Falcon '04 the aircraft has been finished in the state a lot of my reference shots show during the deployment. Decals were provided by the Model Alliance "Harriers: The First Ten Years" 48-102 and the cockpit was replaced with the Aires GR7 cockpit, annoyingly the canopy fogged a little whilst trying to attach it and so the interior is somewhat obscured, but I am going to play it off as it's cold in Norway and the canopy has glazed over a little Onto the images; Thanks for looking and expect a WIP for the next RAF Winter camouflaged jet at some point, but I'm yet to decide on Jaguar, Tornado or Buccaneer!

    Harreir T4 Norway camo

    Hi all, I'm just about to start building a Kinetic Harrier T4 for the Hawker Siddeley GB and want to build it as an aircraft deployed to Norway with the corresponding winter camo. I have found some pictures of 4 Sqn birds with partial winter camo but would really like to an a/c with the full wrap around where the green is replaced by white. I know that some were painted in that way as I have found pictures online which show single seaters nice and clearly and teasingly show just the extended tail portions of a 2 seater, typical! So if any of you can help with pictures or even supply the codes and sqn number of Harrier T birds in that scheme I would be extremely grateful. Thanks in advance. Craig.

    Hans' not solo but 3

    2017 wasn't quite as profilic as I had hoped, but putting out 3 kits this year is actually a huge lot more than I'm used to , so it isn't all that bad! First up was the good old Monogram 1/48 Harrier in the '70 Nato vs Warzaw pact GB: Next up was the good old Hobbycraft 1/72 DeHavilland Canada Caribou in the DeHavilland GB: and last up was the not so old, but still good Dragon 1/72 Mercury rocket in the Prototype and X-planes GB: Merry X-Mas to all from snowcovered Kolt in Denmark Hans J
