A new kit to play with in this new year.
It's my first and only Harrier; I'm not normally a jet builder. If I feel like building a jet, though, it would be one as cool looking as the Harrier.

Still waiting for some AM to come through the mails, so I won't be starting right away. Very soon, though. Going to attempt the Arctic scheme used in Norway.

Looking good 59North!
You can never have enough Harriers but for me 1 Harrier seems to little for me.......

...... I read somewhere the canopy is too wide and it's true. It's so wide it hangs out over each side of the fuselage. So it had to go. I am going to use the canopy of an old mould Airfix GR3 which had been earmarked for conversion to a trainer........


Back from the holiday break. These pics compare the canopies and their fit.

The narrower (correctly shaped) GR3 canopy leaves a shoulder of plastic exposed that I needed to carve off each side of the upper fuselage. Port side only is done in this pic.
