Airfix 1:24 Harrier T.2 Conversion


Recommended Posts

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...
