AV-8B Harrier

Recommended Posts

Hello,

This is my 1/72 Hasegawa kit I built OOB for the local group-build themed Desert Storm. I used Gunze FS 36375 and FS 35237 for the camouflage and supplied decal for the marking. The kit is excellent and needed very little filler.

Thanks for looking.

That's very nice. The boot marks all over the wings are a particularly nice touch. How did you go about that?

Excellent model and great choice of markings too! The grimy weathering on top of the wings looks very convincing. :thumbsup:

I read that a few of these were destroyed in Afghanistan in a raid, making me wonder every time I see them, if a depicted airframe was lost. As I understood it, there aren't that many Harriers in the US arsenal.

More than in the British one though. Alas.

Wow, thats really fantastic work for 1/72 scale. very well built and painted.

very nicely weathered. did you use the salt technique. personally i find that some of the salt crystals could have been a bit too big.

so what i ended up doing is pounding regular table salt to smally crystals and mixing it with salt from Mc Donalds (fine salt). gives that

irregular size effect.

Great model you did, Shan...!

No, I don't use salt-technique for weathering. Form my experiences, the effect I want can only be seen through camera lens and I can't see my result with my bare eyes. That's why now I use "standard" technique...: washing, and post weathering using oil paints and pastels.
