1/72 Hasegawa AV-8B Harrier II

Some pictures of my  Hasegawa 1/72 Harrier II.  The whole construction was done out-of-the box, but the completed piece still looks quite decent, mainly Hasegawa's credit for such nice tooling.  The panel lines are fine and beautifully engraved. Consider the price for this kit is about $7 USD, it is fun to build and easy.  Highly recommended for a relaxing build.

There is no major fit problems for this kit considering that Hasegawa's aircraft often have some problems.  The mold is clean without much flashes and details are crisp.  The 3 tone colors were painted with Gunze paints plus a bit of weathering using wet pastel mixture.

 

Finally, I choose to use a mirror as to base to reveal the underneath of this aircraft.
