AV-8B II Plus Questions
Posted 16 April 2012 - 12:18 AM
I'm aware that the Engine Fire Access Ports are totally wrong. Any techniques to correct them to the "tapered tube" shape, or does anyome produce corrected ones? (I shudder to think about the results if I try plastic tubing and putty.)
The underwing hardpoint and ordnance issues have been well documented by Dave Roof for the early Harrier.
Are there any differences between the Aires Night/Attack and Plus Cockpit sets? I have the N/A set and would appreciate any suggestions about modifying it to the Plus cockpit. I don't think there would be much to do, but I could be mistaken.
Any other information would be much appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

I'm sure you have lots of references on the subject. If anyone else is interested, I was very impressed with the SAM Publications AirData 3 book by Andy Evans titled "US Marines AV-8B Harrier II" (published in 2009 - ISBN 978-1-906959-06-7). Are you familiar with it? The 67 pages are crammed with color walkaround close-ups and profiles of the "Vanilla", N/A, and Plus versions. A short potted history is included too.

Close comparison of the Aires Night Attack (2121) and II Plus (2171) cockpits reveals that the resin parts, photo-etch, and instructions are identical. The only difference is the product identification on the photo-etch fret and instructions. Everything else is exactly the same. Anyone who intends to use the Night Attack cockpit set in their II Plus kit isn't missing anything.
