I was reading an old copy of Flypast when I came across the attached article, and the black and white photo just said "Build Me" It was a race sponsored by the Daily Mail, a Transatlantic Race - top of the Post Office (BT) Tower to the top of the Empire State Building. The RAF entered 3 harriers, the RN a Phantom FG1 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the attempt and Jet Art Aviation are restoring the victor - Harrier GR1 XV741 My brain has already worked out how to do most of this. I am Tempted to enter it into the RAF100 Group Build, but I don't knowhow I'll find the time! My build mantra seems to be "Let's not make life easy"
Hi everyone! My first project to be shared on this here new forum! Cool! Over the last few months I've been working on my dream project, one that I've wanted to do for around 30 years, convert the ancient 1:24 Airfix Harrier into a two-seat T.2 trainer. Those of you who ever tried to build even the basic kit will know just how tricky that can be(!), so adding to the load with a scratchbuilt nose, tail, tail fin and a complete redetailing job, is bordering on insane! Still, I've started and now there's no turning back! So far I've lengthened the nose, and started to scratchbuild all of the cockpit detail. I've also reworked the intakes and started work on the stinger extension and the new tail fin. Most of this work involves basic tools, techniques and materials as well as not only a huge number of photographs (around 350 and counting just for the details...), but also the help of some very generous people, without whom this project would not be possible. So thank you to Nick Greenall, Dave Fleming, David Haggas and Tim Perry! Here are some images to show you what I've done so far. Also, if you would like to see me explaining how I've proceeded with this project, here are links to the so far three videos that I've created for it as part of my YouTube channel... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfQeFAMdUVY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwdnUcZldFA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWs1lMxWZmQ I hope that you like it!
