1/32 Trumpeter AV-8B II Plus


Recommended Posts

Trumpeter's 1/32 AV-8B II Plus, built in four days and is a four footer at best! All markings were painted on using masks created on my Cameo Silhouette (these are on a future decal sheet, but needed them now). Centerline pylon and APKWS Pod were designed in Fusion 360 and 3D printed (also future releases). Base was made and donated by a fellow Marine.

 

Model was built for and presented to LtCol Grunke, the CO of VMA-231 as a going away gift as he relinquished command. My girlfriend and I spent the day at the squadron and the evening with the squadrons Officers and SNCO's at a pig roast. An absolutely great event all around.

 

The last photo is how they paid me 😄

Very impressive for 4 days of work. Great job Dave. That base is really cool as are your gifts.

Really nice thing to do. Surprised how big the Harrier is in 1/32. Thought it would be smaller.

 

Oh, and Bourbon, drink of the gods. :thumbsup:
