Harrier GR.5, 1/72nd Airfix (conversion)

January 31, 2014 · in Aviation · · 7 · 3.9K

Here's the latest. 's recent GR.9 converted to a GR.5. Nose is from Quickboost. Pilot is from PJ Productions. Thousand pounders from the Revell Tornado, Sidewinders from the Hasegawa weapons set. Painted with Mr Color, decals are a mix of kit and Modeldecal. Final finish is Vallejo matt and gloss mixed to a slight sheen and micromeshed. Quick and easy conversion, and my favourite Harrier colour scheme.

  1. Immaculate! I love these in flight models.

  2. Fantastic job , hard to believe that's 1/72 it must have been so fiddly.
    Cheers N.

  3. I like the build, but the panel lines on these Airfix Harriers are always an issue for me - scaled-up they'd be the thickness of a man's hand.

    Immaculate workmanship, though, and my favourite Harrier scheme as well.

  4. I'm with Neil-difficult at best. 1/48 enough of a challenge. Very nice.

  5. Very neat job, Drewe, and clever use of accessories from other kits.

  6. Drewe,
    Excellent build. You did this aircraft justice.

  7. Fantastic mate, looks awesome!
