Going to be done as an AV-8A using an old model decal sheet.

Its not a bad kit, now primed the whitebits you can see on this pic.

I picked the kit up for 50p at a boot sale, someone had glued the pilot into the seat, and no decals but apart from that its all there.

Actually making some progress, now thats shocking!

Didn't it come out with an USMC option originally?

I thought about it, but then CBA factor kicked in.

No,

Only two options in the box were Harrier Operational conversion unit, the 2 aircraft which took part in the London / New York Air Race 1974.

Arh!!!!!!!!!!!

Put second coat of grey on tonight and its lifted the first coat. Had to scrub of the light grey using thinners.

Luckily the grey model primer has not been affected, that stuff must have kryptonite in it or something.

Will now leave it a day to let thinners evaporate. Also stops me stomping it into little bits :deadhorse:
