Hasegawa's 1/48 scale
AV-8B Harrier II Plus

Harrier II Plus

 


Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Harrier II Plus is available online from Squadron.com

 

Description

 

Here is Hasegawa's recent 1/48 scale Harrier II Plus.

This is a pretty standard build-up. I used some Eduard photo-etched parts in the cockpit and Two Bob's Decals.

The paint was from Gunze and I stuck with the colors that Two Bob's suggested. Weapons are from the Hasegawa 'D' Set. The most difficult part was the Det cord on the Canopy, but Cyrus Tan gave me a good tip and it worked out great.

 

 

The reason for such a minor write-up on this is that this is part two of a multi-part diorama that I've been working on. Part One was the earlier Submission of the AH-1W Cobra gunship. I'm almost finished with the CH46 and still working on the CH53E. This is all part of a pretty sizeable diorama that will depict the Elevator area and part of the deck of an LHA (LHP), complete with a cutaway area and figures.

I hope that you enjoy the Harrier and if anyone has photos of the INSIDE of the Elevator Deck and the underside of the Elevator itself, that would be very handy in helping me finish this thing!
