It's not usual to see scratch building in 1/144, very nice work done here!

That looks really promising. I'll take a seat to follow.

Bart Goesaert
Thank you, hopefully I won't ruin it with the paintjob (my biggest hurdle)

The best is just to do it Bart. Master comes from practice. I have the same adding decals. It is indeed not my profession 😄

added some more antenna's and other missing stuff

Anybody has some ideas for a weapons load for a Harrier in Norway?

Christian Bruer
Nice extra details. About the payload for a Harrier in Norway you should check out one of the Harrier Groups on FB. May they have a hint regarding your request.

You should pitch that Sidewinder to Pfizer as a next step to increase the vaccination rates... 😄

Great scratchbuilding and detailing, in this challenging scale 👍 really crazy stuff when you add some real world objects for comparison...

Christian Bruer
Mhhh, I havn't seen a scratch built Sidewinder so far in this scale. What is wrong with you, AMS? 😄

Just kidding, great job on the Winder, really impressive 👍

Bart Goesaert
Thx Slavo for the compliments.

@Christian: no AMS, maybe MMS (mediocre modellers syndrome). But been looking at your scratchbuilds as a reference...

Some more progress...

David R. Meizoso
Looks great, Bart. I'm impressed, you managed to mask the underside without breaking the pylons! Top job with the canopy aswell!
21 December 2021, 14:54
Following! So much skill with so tiny scale👍
21 December 2021, 15:35
Bart Goesaert
Thank you S M, there are people here that can do more in this tiny scale then what I can. It's a challenge to try to obtain the same results

Camouflage done...
26 December 2021, 22:09
Bart Goesaert
Weapons painted
27 December 2021, 21:41
Bart Goesaert
Little question: retry the painting on the weaponry? Landing gear mounted... small details too like the pitots. Those inside the engine were a nightmare to place...still the bangseat and decals to do....

Sidewinders look great, what a challenge must be just holding them while brushing!

Hey Bart, really nice build and good to see someone else adding/correcting details on a 1/144 kit. 👏👏

8 February, 20:20
Rui Da Silva
Amazing work. That instrument panel... what did you use...an electron microscope LOL 😁
8 February, 20:41
Excellent build and detailed! The canopy looks a bit messy, but otherwise well painted 👍
8 February, 21:31
Bart Goesaert
Richard: not a lot of people do that, I don't know why.

Rui: the IP was rather simple. Paint it black and a grey wash. While wet, rub the excess slightly away.

S M: yeah, the main painpoint of this build... Had to choose between fixing up front and risking breaking it off while masking ofr fixing it afterwards.. Had to remount it several times in the end, and sanding the CA seemed a little harder then expected. Maybe I'll give it another go within a few days... but the risk of doing more bad then good is...

Very nice work and finish on your Harrier Bart 👍
9 February, 08:28
i agree with you Bart, adding details to 1/144 can be real fun. nice job in this one

Richard Cheals
For IP's, I've been taking pics from online and reducing to scale (always a bit of trial & error, but why do we have these apps, otherwise?) then printing out on light card. They always look better than whatever comes in kits at this scale, even if you generally can't really see them after everything is closed up.

Bart Goesaert
That is a nice idea Richard. Thank you Christian and Spanjaard
