Calum

1/48 Kinetic BAe Sea Harrier FRS.1 No 800 NAS HMS Hermes 1982

Recommended Posts

Lovely weathering and one of the best SHARS I can remember, just one small thing caught my eye, - the wheels. They don't all contact the deck and they're not weighted, it makes the model very tippy toe and just takes away from an otherwise very convincing build.

A great SHAR. Couldn't see if the pilot had a beard.

That is a beauty Calum,........ lovely job!

 

Just one observation, I remember these aircraft being quite glossy;

 

Image result for harrier falklands

 

Your left tail plane seems to have taken a knock too while handling it,......but please don`t think I`m having a go,.....far from it,...... it is one of the best SHAR models that I have seen! 

 

Cheers,

Fair point but I've found that even if the real aircraft is glossy, a glossy or even semi gloss coat doesn't work on a small model.

Lovely warn and faded look without been "weathered" to death. I did the ol' Matchbox SHAR1 as a Falklands veteran and also hand painted over the markings, similarly my brush work was "too good" :D

Nice work Calum. Maybe Bruce could build one too and get some practice in.
