Harrier GR3, XZ967 D “Donatello”  1473 Flight, Belize 1993.  Built for the Helicopter, Autogyro and STOVL group build.


Airfix 1/72, Freightdog resin tail fin, Pavla jet nozzles, CMK seat, Master pitot and AOA sensor, Brengun PE boarding ladder, decals from  Xtradecal set X72186.


My first attempt at airbrushing a disruptive camouflage scheme using blue tack worms.  True to form I picked a nice easy subject, wrap around and with a complex area around the jet nozzles!


















I was attracted to this aircraft as Donatello was my daughter’s favourite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and here he is on the tail:




Thanks for looking.

Gorgeous Harrier! Very well painted too, looks just right. The blu-tack worms is a good trick isn't it, I always use that technique now. 


I thought it was 1/48 from looking, very detailed.

Excellent Harrier.  I was in Belize in '93 as well with 45 Commando.  We were in the South though and only ever saw RAF Puma's.

Hello Andwil,

Your first attempt on the camou stage has worked very well.

Most favorite picture: The front one with a good side on the jet engine inlet.

Regards, Orion - The Netherlands.
