FIRE TEAM Air Support – Hasegawa 1/48th AV8B Harrier

Fire Team air support …….

In between life issues I managed to get a little work done on the USMC air support part of our Fire Team Skirmish gaming project. The 1/48th Hasegawa Harrier is assembled and waiting the addition (purchase) of a pilot and underwing stores as the kit comes with nether. This is the first plane I’ve built in many many years and I was definitely a little rusty. This boy has some tricky fit issues too, especially around the upper wing and lower ventral stores/undercarriage areas. A little filler and like most of my builds I’ll make up for it with the paint ….. that’s the theory anyway 🙂

And a little inspiration for the Harrier and the Cobra/Viper I’ve got to build ….

    • Thanks Pete 🙂 At least I’m modelling but still are a little crook. The witch doctors are still poking around and seem unsure what to do which is all very confidence building …….
