Yes, we do jets too ! An aftermarket set of decals and a lttle different.paint job, and a very basic kit, made for an interesting addition to my Harrier collection.
This is a WIP of my 1/32 Dragon 110C-7 kit, painted as L1+DH of NJG3, as it was photographed at Benghazi, Libya in 1941, with replacement tail surfaces from a Dayfighter.
