As everyone probably knows by now Harriers are one of my favourite aircraft and I was just wondering if everyone who has pics of their Harrier builds they'd post them here?
It'd be awesome to have a thread full of different harrier builds no matter what the scale.
This has been approved by admin so my back is clear to have sister threads on the Jump Jet :).

Anyway heres some of mine:

XZ493:
Before building her I wasn't really a huge fan of the FRS.1 but I've now grown quite font of that particular type of Harrier, I think the all over dull grey was what put me off.

XZ129:
This one took around 9 years of trying in various scales to get in my collection as I didn't have the skill or decals but I managed to find some off a friend on here.

I really like the orange flashes on that first one. I like the Royal Navy's dark sea gray schemes. They feel northern and maritime. The types of things you'd expect at the ends of the earth.

That looks fantastic mate!
Way better than either of mine.
Im actually looking for some decals for a Spanish Harrier, I saw an all over white AV-8A at Telford and I really like it so I now need one!

I'm also a Harrier nut - far too many to post in one thread, but here they are as thumbnails!

For full size piccies its probably best to look at the Harriers page on my website http://www.gengriz.co.uk/Harrierweb/index.htm

A nice selection of Harriers so far.
This is my 1/24 Airfix GR.1 built for SMW this year -

When I find time to dust them I have a GR7 and T10 built too.

Nice Harrier builds! This is a good excuse to dust off these old Harrier builds of mine. Despite being built a while ago they still have a place in my display cabinet.

First, the Matchbox Sea Harrier…
This is probably about 15 years old now. I’ll never forget returning to the bench one day to find the cat had chewed on the sidewinders!

And next the old Airfix GR3. again built a while ago. I was lucky enough to be able to sit in the cockpit of a GR3 earlier this year. I had no idea how small it was in there!

I’ve now bought the new Airfix kit so now maybe its about time I built a new Harrier. :)

Gengriz, that's a lovely jump jet collection. Do you have all of them out on display?

Wow I didn't realise this thread would "takeoff"(excuse the pun :D) as much as it has!

I like the fact collections of harrier are being dusted off for pics for this thread.

Every model I've seen is fantastic in these pics and I can assume the pics don't do them justice.

I've been working on a T.10(based on the Italeri TAV-8B), I'm planning on masking the canopy tonight and getting the first coat of primer on.
