Desert Storm…Hasegawa 1/48 McDonnell Douglas AV-8B Harrier II, VMA-231 USMC
Built in 2018.
Another of my dad´s excursions to the modern world.
Hasegawa kit, not one of their best, some fit issues, steps and gaps.
Bought the kit second hand from a fellow modeller, sadly the decals weren´t really usable anymore so my father used an Eagle Strike sheet. Decals for the canopy detonation cord are from a TwoBobs sheet. Seat is from Quickboost, Snakeeyes from a Hasegawa weapon set, the kit includes only drop tanks and Sidewinders. Camo done with Gunze H307 FS36320 and H337 FS35237.
