Nice start. Which decal sheet are you using?

It’s in the post. One of the xtradecal ones. A/C number is XV787, 1Sqn out in RAF Belize.

A question for anyone in the know. The instructions call to fit only one blade aerial behind the canopy and fill the other hole for a GR1, but this is an early GR3. So does it still have only 1 aerial or the 2 as seen on later laser nosed GR3s? @Selwyn, any info you can share?

Some work on the seat

I did get a resin replacement, but have decided to add the pilot, work to modify him continues to get the right pose. 

Painting starts, going to try these with the hairy stick.

Your pilot looks spot-on - will look great when seated in the cockpit.

Cheers, Peter

Thanks Peter, still need to adjust the arms and hands to get a suitable pose. 

I have a little ritual of naming any pilots I use in the GBs.

Using the colours from Ammo by Mig, I thought the grey looked light compared to Humbrol 164 that I normally use, so a little comparison on the drop tanks.

According to information on the Harrier Sig, the colour on the left is correct for camouflage Harriers. Maybe faded Harriers in my opinion but I have gone with it and the fuse is painted in the lighter grey, after all it is based out in Belize.
