I've just been having a look through this build and what a great conversion it is, Alan, the old and new parts look like they were almost made to go together!

I know it was an accidental photobomb by the Landy, but the two do look good together in that photo.
Future dio opportunity, perchance?

That's not a bad idea.

The bag seat in the new Airfix Harrier is nicely detailed, it's a shame that most of it will be hidden.

The new parts fit well and look better.

The OOB ejection seat is very nice for the scale, certainly much better than the one Airfix provided in the early 80's 1/48th Sea Harrier that is on my workbench - I had to add a number of scratch built parts to make that look anything like!

Sorry this is a DNF I thought I had decal to cover this build but they have gone missing, I will complete it on the aviation tread at a later date.
