Hello everyone,

For my second entry into the Where are you from GB, I've decided to enter my 1/48 Eduard Harrier

I've decided that I want to do this scheme because I like the tail art














I've also got a few aftermarket goodies on the way (fully-resin seat and resin exhaust nozzles)

Thanks for looking
Jamie

Ive been working very hard on the Harrier this week but have been so focused that I haven't put the photos up on the forum. So, here are all of the photos of the harrier build so far.

The first stage was doing various sub-assemblies


I then painted the cockpit in UMP grey primer as this was the closest match to the colour of the PE. The cockpit was then detail painted with citadel paints, chipped, had a UMP dark dirt wash all over and humbrol pigments in the places where the pilot's feet would have been



The air intake was painted with UMP white primer. I tend to do all of my white painting with this because I find it the easiest to spray

The fan was painted with Vallejo acrylic aluminium and weathered with UMP dark dirt wash. The air intake was then glued to the cockpit section

I then masked off the fan blades so I could paint the intake white again easily if any paint went down there


I decided to test fit the aircraft on its gears in case there was a problem at a later date which would be much harder to resolve

The whole plane was primed in UMP black primer


The aircraft was painted with Mr Hobby Aqueous H335 and then mottled with lighter and darker shades of this colour



I'm really enjoying this build so far and would recommend this kit to anyone
Thanks for looking
Jamie
