After a year when I have really struggled to find time for modelling, I have definitely been busy over the Xmas break!

Image

These are both based on the old ESCI model (still IMHO the best 1/72 Harriers), using both decal options from one box (one of these kits came as a dirty bag of bits without decals, but fortunately with all its parts!).

First up, an AV-8A of the US Marines:

And then a Matador - Toro, toro, see you tomorrow my son!

When you can't decide what to build, build a Harrier, then build another for luck - Happy New Year all!

A lovely pair of Harriers there, Fred. Great work and lovely canopy framing.

I have an Airfix GR1 NT in my stash - hope I can make it look as good as yours ;-)

Beautiful pair of Harriers!
I built my recent GR.1A out of the same Esci box. As you say, a gorgeous kit.

Cheers,

David
