1/32 Revell Harrier

Recommended Posts

Hello!

So, I got a great deal on 4 Revell kits. One was the Harrier. What do you all have to say about it. Any after market for it?

Thanks!

Aftermarket for the Harrier 1?

 

Close to nothing!

 

Siam decals released a decal sheet with stencils and an Ukrainian company released a photoetched Pegasus face.

 

The main problem is the fact the kit is a pre-production plane that has the completely different bullet-shaped fairing in front of the fore exhaust. This can only be corrected with epoxy putty and a long session of sanding...

 

Correcting shapes, detailing and scribing will consequently have to rely on old fashioned Modelling!

So time to bring out a new tool Harrier family :m0152:  :m0152:

 

 

Avfew have said the same. Quite a few, actually!!!

 

Indeed, I'm one of them.  A GR1/3 and a T2 to start with would be ideal, then take it from there.  Naturally I include the AV-8A/TAV-8A in that, but whoever does it must remember to include Stencel seats for the AV-8s, unlike the Kinetic 1:48 Tbird.

 

A P1127/Kestrel/XV-6 would be nice too, but that's probably too much to hope for.

First, I don't mind doing Old School Modeling. I usually can't afford all the aftermarket goodies. I just ordered the In Detail and Scale Book. I have come to rely on them. What I was looking for was input on it's fit and quality. Cockpit is sparse, but I see an empty canvas.

Who has built one?

It's pretty much an early P.1127(RAF) instead of a Gr.1 like they claim it to be.  There is definitely a lot of work that would need to be done to bring it up to modern standards.  But, it can definitely be done with enough determination
