Thats hoofin mate ....only those roundels look a bit strange...high ratio of white ...probably just the angle.

Doesnt detract from a good representation..👍👍👍😷😃

Now you mention it they do look a bit odd, no where near as obvious in the “flesh” as in the photos though.

Great build of the best looking Harrier version 👍

 

You say OOB, but I'm guessing to did something to drop the aux intake doors as they are not like that on my boxing of the kit?

I agree - just go and get yourself some proper Type D roundels

Ditto on the roundels! That is what a Sea Harrier is supposed to look like- I, too love the classic early scheme! I still believe the Esci/Italeri early Harriers are the best kits to work from in 1/72 scale. That's a very nice model and you should be proud of it.

Very nice indeed! The 1983 ESCI mold is still the best SHAR out there in Gentlemen's Scale.

 

Cheers,

Thanks Tbolt, yes I did cut out and drop the aux intake doors.  It was a real fiddle and I stuffed up the starboard side by gluing them in back to front 🤭a spot of black paint has disguised the whoopsie.  In future I’ll replace the intakes with after market ones.

Very nice 1/72 Sea Harrier. That's one you can display proudly.

A very nicely done model.  Italeri let you down a bit with the roundels (see pic), but the model and the finish are really good.
