AV 8B HARRIER



Model is Hasegawa at 1/48 scale, build by me.


Kit include the Black Box cockpit ( made for the monogram kit), part of the eduard Photoetched sheet and parts of the Am

After the article found in the Wing Master book, showing the AV8B under Italian colours with its pilot onboard, i decide to build mine....i modified an Hasegawa pilot to fit on the Black Box seat and the idea to give this pilot an " expression" come directly with some images of the first Gulf War; with the Hog pilots starting their missions and waving the spangle banner at the crew chiefs. So, construction also inlude to move the control surfaces and opening the refueling probe. This part is coming directly from the Amraam resin kit. Construction was not too bad, but i was surprise to used the putty at the different stages.....a special attention is needed around the air intake.Paint is from Testor and after a coat of Future i add the decals on it. Weapon load is coming partly from the box, just added the GBU 12.
