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