This is the 1/48 Kinetic Harrier T.4(N) depicted in 899 NAS markings circa 1987. Mostly built out of the box - CBLS on the centreline, intake blanks and RBF tags being the added extras. Sprayed using MRP, weathered with oils and Gunze Gray Smoke.

Very smart looking T.4 Tez. Looks busy and worn without being over weathered. Very convincing!

 

Cheers

That looks spectacular to my eyes, some subtle weathering and nice detailing.

Very nice. Brings back some great memories of my time on 899.

An absolute stunner that is! Weathering is spot on, just enough extra details to bring it to life as well.

That’s a beauty - is it just me or is the two seater the best looking of all the variants?

I rarely comment on completed builds but that is very nice Tez.

What technique did you use for colouring the MDCs?

 

Seeing your T4N makes all the work Chocks Away and I did with Kinetic to get this kit out there well worthwhile.

That's very sharp, how did it build? I had a bad and frustrating experience with a 1/48 Kinetic kit a couple of years ago and it put me off aircraft and Kinetic in particular for quite a while.

Thanks, you’ll see it on the Harrier SIG display at Telford! 😀

 

Used artist acrylic to paint the MDC. The advantage of using it is that you can tidy up any mistakes with the tip of a cocktail stick.

Thank you, it’s not a bad build, easier than their Mirage III, and more refined in terms of fit compared with their previous Sea Harrier FA.2. Looking forward to the GR.1 and GR.3.

Excellent news!  

 

On the MDC, after dipping in Klear I usually use enamel applied with a 000 brush, with another 000 brush to hand with some blue-coloured brush cleaner, with which I correct any errors - the brush cleaner does not attack Klear so I can usually produce a good result.  I'll admit that with the Kinetic T-birds I have yet to try and enhance the MDCs; my two to date being finished in a rush for last SMW. I now have to decide what to do with number 3 for this year's tables... MDC highlighted or not.

 

Decisions, decisions!

 

Cheers

Hello TEZ,

Excellent build. Subtle weathering does this RN AC very good.

Also a "thumbs Up"for the photographic presentation.

Splendid looking T4. Exactly how a Harrier should look!
