AV-8A Thai navy


Recommended Posts

 

Completed a 1/32 AV-8A in the markings of the Thai naval flying service.

 

Improved the old Revell Harrier kit shapes and detailed the cockpit etc.

 

Decals were home designed and printed.

Good work!!!

 

Two information for you. First, the kit is actually depicting a pre-production Gr.1. This explains the front exhaust fairing shape. For instance one is preserved here:

Second, there is an available full set of decals for 1/32 Thai Harriers:

Gosh that looks good, it reminds me of an open day at U Tapao way back in 1999 when we lived next door to the airport.

It was a very hot day, everyone looking for shade.
