1/48 Tamiya Sea Harrier FRS.1

Recommended Posts

I'm on a bit of Harrier kick at the moment - this is the very old Tamiya Sea Harrier completed as 800 NAS ZA176 in June 1982 heading out for a CAP mission in the Falklands War.


Overall there's a number of errors with the kit - some of which I chose to correct and others I did not.  In the end it sure does look like a SHAR despite the shortcomings.  The model is displayed in flight with Coastal Kits blur effect display base mounted on an acrylic rod - the base does convey a nice "speed" effect.  Decals are from Aeromaster and a few of the pink ones from the new Kinetic kit which I intend to build in a different scheme.  The retracted outrigger wheels are from an equally old Tamiya Harrier GR.1 (as I said - I'm on a harrier roll...!)  Pitot tube and AOA sensor are from Model Master.  Sidewinders are from the spares box as the ones supplied are devoid of any resemblance to the real thing!
