Harrier Hide - Harrier GR3, 4 Squadron, Royal Air Force Germany.

Recommended Posts

Harrier GR3, 4 Squadron, Royal Air Force Germany

 

This is the Airfix new tool 1/72 Harrier with CMK resin engine and nozzle set, Freightdog replacement fin, Airwaves RBF pennants and Pavla aftermarket seat; the decals are from the kit.

Built and displayed to depict a deployed operations field maintenance task on the Rolls Royce Pegasus engine with MT, GSE and other clutter to recreate a typical scene in RAFG during the 1980’s. The camouflage netting was omitted for clarity and all reference photos showed field maintenance without it anyway.

The Bedford MK bowser is the ex-JB models kit modified with scratch built wing mirrors, bonding strap and hessian screen cover. A Wiking 1/87 scale Unimog was repainted and detailed with a Kingfisher miniatures resin trailer load, Bren Gun crew steps, spare decals and scratch built mirrors.

All of the other accessories were from Flightpath, various model railway aftermarket suppliers or scratch built while all scenery was from Woodland’s Scenics on expanded polystyrene in a box frame from Hobbycraft.

Clutter includes drip trays, floodlights, oil/jerry cans, generator, cables, chocks, toolkits and caddy, fire extinguisher, scaffolding, Houchin and a lineys jacket hanging from one of the pylons.

Figures are from Noch, Preiser and Matchbox.
