is the Hasegawa 1/72 Harrier GR7 "Op Telic" version. A good kit, but
it's basically the AV-8 with a new nose and decal sheet. This being the case
there are a number of "Brit" bits missing, noticeably fairings on the
wing tips and just above the ventral fin, also the seat is wrong as is the
instrument panel, but all that said it is a nice kit. Built out of the box, the
only additions were a metal seat (can't remember who made it), Maverick missiles
and LAU-117A launchers (from the Hasegawa weapon set, the Mav's had their rear
fins removed to represent training rounds carried by the RAF), the pilot is PJ
productions and the ground crew is from the Hasegawa set and finally, the decals
are from Model Alliance Harrier sheet.
is the second of 3 commissions for a colleague, just the Nimrod to go!
