Airfix 1/72nd Harrier GR.9A WiP
Posted by Bish on Sunday, October 4, 2020 6:59 AM

Alongside the Shar, i am also doing a harrier GR.9A. This will be in the Op Herrick markings.

I'll be adding a resin cockpit as wel as resin exhauts and intakes. First task was to fit the side to the pit and get all the pit parts painted.

With the detail painting done the pit was fited into the nose which was then fitted to the main body of the fuselage.

Then got the wing fitted. There is a large gap behind the cockpit, but thats a resin piece so can't blame that on the kit. In general the fit has been very good.

Nice, Martin.  More weight in resin than plastic, I fear.

The Harrier is now ready for priming and painting, just got to mask off the canopy and intakes.

The various doors and hatches will be painted off the kit.

While its in the paint shops, i will start on a weapons loader.

Enjoying this. I like Harrier's and have yet to build one.

You can see the finish line from here. I always like the nose on this variant. Seems like there's a lot going on and a lot of technology packed in that nosecone.

Thanks guys.

Greg, he must be hideing in case Bond find him Wink. But i am surprised that 007 has not flown one, it only appeared in one Bond movie.

Chad, i agree. I have a GR1 and 3 in the stash as well, but i am not really as keen on the look of the front of the 1, its only from the 3 that its starts to get more interesting.

This one looks really good as well. They will certainly complement each other on the shelf.

Thanks BK. Ye, i think your right. And i am looking forward to doing the older versions with the different schemes. These 2 are just various shades of grey.
