1/48 Kinetic Hawker Harrier T4

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi there I finished this some 4 weeks ago and have not had the opportunity to photograph it. Now I can ruin a decent model in one click and as you can tell it's not my thing!. I bought this at Telford SMW 2017 and it was one of those I had to have it as I normally buy 2nd hand kits. It goes together quite well and I'm pleased although it's tiny in scale and I had doubts at the beginning but I have vowed to leave 1/48 to the experts, I simply find it too small to make it an enjoyable build. Anyway some crappy photos to humour you with. Ignore the base as it's 1/32 and the only one I've got.

Thanks for looking Steve.

That's a nice looking Harrier, which always look good with the LRMTS 'dolphin' nose and wraparound camouflage.

 

An issue of first generation Harriers with both pointy and dolphin noses are sorely lacking in 1/32, which is a pity as its petite size

would really suit the scale. Nice to see Kinetic catering so well to the 1/48 guys, all the same.

Nice model. I too wished that Kinetic scaled up its first gen Harriers to 1/32, esp. the SHAR.

Very nice Steve.  I'm building this one as a T2 for a mag atm, nice to have some inspiration to crack on with mine.

Hi everyone this has had a bit of a revival. The FOD covers are filler, I put 10thou plasticard behind it and filled it as the bags have a texture to them and I was able to mould them when it was going off. This was my second to last build of 1/48 kits and it's a great kit with some fantastic builds out there but old eye dictate 32 from now on.

 

Steve.
