WIP AV-8 Harrier Egg Plane


Wilfried Bogaerts
Just started a new in-between project, a Harrier egg plane from Hasegawa, and thus joining Augies and Cliff's Harrier buddy build, hope this qualifies... Very simple and certainly not one of their best but just for fun. As usual all parts were prepared and the fuel tanks and rocket pods were assembled. The air intake insides were airbrushed with Gunze H305. Fuselage insides were treated with black paint and the Magical Hairy Stick (Augie !! I did it !! 😄 ). Fuselage halves were glued together and sanded flush. Then it was time for the "cockpit". No fuss, just added some seat belts from Tam-Tape and a steering stick from the spares box. All this got some fictious colours, and a decal was added for the instrument panel. That's it for now, see ya'll soon !

I found that 1/72 decals aren't a bad fit for these.

Some progress on the Harrier Egg Plane! 6 more pics added. The belly and underside of the wings received a coat of Gunze H332 Light Aircraft Grey. These were masked and the remaining surfaces were treated with Tamiya XF-77 Dark Seagrey. More masking, this time I used Humbrol Maskol, and the green patches came from a pot of Tamiya XF-62 Dark Green. The egg is now ready for detail painting, a layer of varnish and the decals!
