Bit of a scary moment this evening; when checking over the kit the canopy was missing. But I found it

Welcome from me too :welcome:

It's easy to forget how old the Harrier was (if you know what I mean).  The first flight only just missed the 50s.

Construction started a few day ago

The fuselage as it sits today

That tail extension needs filing down in diameter to fit and its end needs a hole filled

Strangely on this issue of the kit there was no provision for stand. I'm tempted to make a hole for one

A hovering pose would work really well (if that's what you're considering).

I had a break from modelling whilst I rebuilt more BMW torches

I'll be back on this about Wednesday or Thursday

It was several rounds of filing and filling parts to get them to fit

Airfix is going to re-issue this later in the year. If they don't improve to the moulds its waste of money. You're better off trying to make a P.1127 from the old Frog/Novo Harrier

At least I got 4 of the 5 wheels touching the ground. One of the double main wheels just misses by 1/2 a mil

Modelling is suspended indefinitely

I was in hospital from March 19th to April 4th and it was found that I have a problem with my eyes

Everything is blurry and my depth perception is gone

I have to have some ops on my peepers, starting next week with laser treatment

I wouldn't normally share all this but I felt an explanation was due

 

I was rather looking forward to finishing this and getting it into my Harrier collection

Hope all goes well with your op and you can regain your proper sight🤞

That's not news you want to hear!  I hope treatment goes well, and you can resume normal activities soon.
