Italeri 1/72 FRS.1 Sea Harrier

Postby hrtpaul » Tue Sep 03, 2013 10:19 pm

This is the second model I have on the go for this GB. It's the Italeri 1/72 FRS.1 Sea Harrier. It's not a bad kit detail wise. The fit is alright in most places. I'll be replacing the kit AIM-9L's cos they're crap. I bought a heap of Pavla resin seats for thew Harriers I'll be doing and was going to fit them after the model was finished. I attempted to fit the seat in but the bloody pit is too skinny. The next Harrier I do, I'll try modifying the pit so the Pavla seats fit. I'm also using Eduard canopy masks and they fit brilliantly. Here it is :)

Brother: Do you really need that many Phantoms?
Me: Don't make me kick you outta the shed for asking dumb questions
Brother: But are you gonna build all these models?
Me: Yeah of course I am. Now get outta my shed

Great start on the SHAR mate! Which colour scheme you going for?

Hoping to start on a Harrier and a Skyhawk for this GB soon :)

Ta mate. I've got a sheet of decals for every Harrier that ventured south so I haven't decided yet though I think it'll be an all over dark grey for starters. Look forward to seeing your models mate :)
