AV-8A Harrier intake color

Recommended Posts

I'm building a couple of AV-8A Harrier kits, and the instructions for neither one of them say a thing about the color of the interior of the air intakes.  The photos I've seen show the same color as the exterior camouflage as far back as I can see, but it's in deep shadow farther in.  Is it green and gray all the way back to the face of the engine?  Is there any white in there?  Its a short, wide intake, so I'd like to get this right.

I'm doing an old Matchbox  one here at ARC and I did mine this far back after the camo

color. HTH---John

I went back with the camo color to the shroud around the fan. That shroud

I painted gray, I think neutral gray. You can see over spray on the shroud in

both my and Finn's pictures.---John

I always love looking at the government websites for reference photos, they typically have the best and a lot of surprises!
