McDD/BAe Harrier GR7 ZD404/"33". RAF No 20(res) Sqn/HOCU. RAF Wittering 1999
Once again the Hasegawa kit - this time though the standard AV8B with nose (not 100% sure about that nose though!!) and additional pylons from an old Airfix kit (I couldn't wait for Hasegawa's GR7!!). I copped out of using any underwing stores, preferring to depict an OCU a/c., with strakes instead of cannons. All very prototypical!
This ends my small "tribute" to the Harrier, although I will be posting one on the Sea Harrier (also in 1/72nd) and some of my 1/48th Harriers/Sea Harriers as well. You lucky lot!!!!
(I still have some way to go in my Pegasus engine collection................ :-)
The last photo depicts three generations of Harrier - the GR3, GR5, & GR7.
