  1. Hi all, This is my first WiP build here so please be gentle πŸ˜‹ My first build here will be an Airfix 1/24 Harrier as the title suggests. Box art: I have also started painting the cockpit, here is the IP. My kit hasn't got the decals for the IP, so I had to use instruments from my spare decals, the larger ones are from a 1/32 Zero kit the rest are various 1/48 kits, clearly they are not the right instruments for the Harrier, but they look better than black dots IMO: More soon πŸ‘

    I do, and I will sand mine just the same when it gets that far, so far I have the cockpit, engine and fuselage together and am just moving on to the wings in a few days. The 1/24 Harrier is by Airfix, but Hobbyboss have gone further with a 1/18 Harrier 😲 I will start a WiP for my Harrier shortly.

    Very nice Angus πŸ‘ I am building one of these and a 1/24 Harrier, switching between the two every couple of days. Looking at yours you have taken all the rivets off, that is some thing I have been toying with and will now do, as it looks better without themπŸ˜ƒ

    Very nice looking Sea KingπŸ˜ƒ I only went up in a Sea King once, it was a SAR Sea King from RAF Leconfield in about 1994, for the rest of my career if we needed a ride it was in either a Puma, Lynx or Chinook,

    Cheers buddyπŸ‘ Yes they still have 13 operational aircraft, of which 5 were deployed on 05 Mar 2013 to attack targets in Lahad Datu, carrying out 18 sorties against ground targets with Mk 82 bombs and CVR7 rockets.

    Thanks Martin πŸ˜ƒ I try to use an appropriate colour for the pre-shading, if like this build the camouflage is a light colour I will use a medium grey, if the camouflage is darker I would use a dark grey or black.

    Thank you Martin, but its just pre-shading and a panel wash mate. Here is a link to the build if you are interested πŸ˜ƒ
