1:48 Tamiya Sea Harrier

 

Gday to my BM mates !!

 

I've been looking forward to this one, the mighty RN Sea Harrier.... After the Falklands conflict this jet had us all in awe, and I was fortunate to see the HMS Invincible as a young boy when she came into Fremantle, Western Australia in 84 or so. We were actually there because she was in company with HMAS Aurora, which was one of the my Dad's ships he served on... Please bear with me, I'll show you a few pics...

 

This is my Dad standing the awesome Sea Harrier:

Here's the big girl, I'm at the bottom centre of the pic......

Okay back to the build.....

 

If you have one in the stash or are thinking to buy this one, my only advice would be, DON'T WATCH THE REVIEWS !!! Well each to their own, I probably don't have as high standards than others, but this is another kit that I built as a young boy. I didn't have any big issues, I added a Big Ed PE kit (for Kinetic) and I had fun building it, and thought it turned out okay...

 

Here's the build, hope you like it.

Decided on decal IP as it fitted better and had more definition...
