    I’m still working on finishing 2 subjects from 2 other GB’s but I couldn’t resist opening up the box and presenting my subject for the RAF 100 years groupbuild.
    The new tooled kit by Airfix in 1/72 of the Harrier GR.1 as flown by No.1(F) Squadron from RAF Wittering in september 1970.
    I will build this kit OOB and the first impressions I got from the parts is really good. So looking forward to start building it and keep you all updated.

    And we are looking forward to it too, Ferry! These new Airfix tools seem to hit the mark every time. Given the troubles at Revell it is great to see a burst of innovation from a ‘traditional’ company. Nice scheme too – very much a 70s look!

    Wow – that looks like a nice kit. My only Harrier build thus far was a Fujimi AV-8B, and it really took some work. I’ve got another RAF Harrier in the stash (MPC maybe – old Airfix) and another Fujimi Sea Harrier, both of which I’m eager to build as I’m just finishing reading The Battle For The Falklands. However, I may have to upgrade my stash with one of these new Airfix kits and ditch the MPC one!

    Good choice Ferry, I have some of these new tool kits in my stash as well !!
