Very gracious of you gents, I shall get up in the loft tomorrow and dig out the offending kits and post photos of my starting position (at which point I may just collapse at the immense task ahead to finish just one of them :shock: ).

Good to have another delin-- I mean builder, although I don't think Spain or Thailand had the GR.3. Might be wrong! :grin:
Oh and yes, certainly is big, so much Harrier for your eyes!

I think your right Mark, they had the AV.8A - I think Thailand bought them from Spain but I could be wrong.

But I bet Al already knew that! :-D

Now, I think you're right. Thailand bought the AV-8A's when Spain upgraded to the Harrier II, I'm sure Al does know this he's just toying with us!!.

You're giving me far too much credit guys- all I know is is that there are decal options for the Spanish and Thai version in my box and I liked the look of them.
Here is where I'm starting from with the Sea Harrier:

and the GR.1/GR.3s
Image

here are the three airframes together - the Sea Harrier has already had the necessary rhinoplasty to convert from the GR.3 version
Image

Work is mental at the moment - I've just pulled a 12 hour shift today and have been asked to do the same tomorrow and maybe even the weekend - so I'm hoping to get going on at least one of these at some point over the weekend.
Cheers
Al.

Wow - that's a lot of plastic - I need to go and lie down...

Glad to have you aboard Al - I may just manage to do a bit on mine this weekend thanks you and Mark.

Cheers

Stuart

Construction is done as far as I'm going to go with it, except for small aerials and the wind vane thingy on the nose. Decals are going on, top and left side done. Pics soon. :grin: Decals are good and have gone on well so far (touch wood!!!). ;-)

Still working on pics but I have a warning!!. The canopy/clear parts are quite thin and flimsy and if you don't get the cover over the IP in exactly the right place the windscreen doesn't seem to want to fit well. Worth taking time over although mine isn't 100%, might be able to bodge it though.
Not going to mention the glue/fingerprint smudge on the main canopy that I can't seem to get rid off even with sanding and varnish!. :evil:

No worries. Here a couple of pics, hopefully you can see the Harrier among the ground clutter!!. A lot of silvering on the decals that are square or outlines and have clear decal inside that, otherwise okay!.
