1/48 Hasegawa AV-8V Harrier II+ | VMA-513


Recommended Posts

This is the Hasegawa AV-8B, Kit #07228. Built OOB with the exception of:

 

  • Scratchbuilt (printed/cut) canopy det cord, using a Cricut Explore Air 2
  • SuperScale Decals #MS481249 

 

I've built a few harriers but was eager to try a different paint scheme. I came across VMA-513's CO which is (to my knowledge) the only US harrier with some color in their scheme with the blue tail. I got hooked on it. Not to mention I never really see many modellers depicting this.

 

Hasegawa has a kit depicting this specific scheme (#09815) but it is rare to find.

 

Paints used:

  • Badger Stynlrez Black Primer
  • Vallejo FS36118 (Top Fuselage)
  • Mission Models FS36320 (Bottom Fuselage)
  • Mission Models White (Intakes)
  • Vallejo Metal Color Steel (Metals around aircraft)

 

So here it is, and please leave some comments and let me know what you think!

Fantastic job!

 

A couple questions regarding the det cord;

1. would you mind sharing the .svg file for the cut?

2. did you make it yourself, or get it from another source?

 

Again, great work on the jump jet, you should be proud.

Made the cut myself. I'll absolutely pass on the SVG when I get the chance.
