Shiny enough to shave in :grin: I like this scheme, a blue Harrier is very different.

The green Harrier gets some extra white paint (actually it's Vallejo white primer) to cover up the plastic on the starboard drop tank.

Image

The front wheel got a blast of the white too - almost ready to put the undercarriage on the blue Harrier.

Cheers

Andrew

Precisely two decals placed on the nose of the Harrier before I got called away to look after David.

Image

One small decal is still floating in the water dish!

Cheers

Andrew

And I managed to rescue the floating decal two hours later and stuck it in place. It did split!

Image

So there we go, three decals which you can hardly see.

Cheers

Andrew

If a little slowly. If I only get three decals a day done, then it's going to be finished at Christmas!

I did more decalling this evening and several decals split. The kit decals are from the Dire Period of Airfix Transfers, so I gave up. Most of them are not visible on photos of the real thing, so I think I'll draw a close to decals and get the Arctic Harrier finished off

Image

I think it has captured the look I wanted without much more work on it.

Cheers

Andrew

A satin varnish coat to try and reduce the gloss a little.

And then there were two.

I'm using matt varnish on the Arctic Harrier, as it's meant to look well weathered!

Cheers

Andrew
