This won't be started for a while as I am still waiting for some bits and pieces to come together for it. I plan to build two Airfix Harriers from the latest tooling 1/72 range and work them into a hide diorama but I will keep the aircraft build thread here. One of these aircraft will be built using the CMK resin engine kit, I used their engine kit for the Airfix Lightning last year and really liked it. The second Harrier will be posed with the pilot crewing in ready for a sortie and armed with Aden belly mounted guns from the kit and resin rocket pods from Freightdog. Both jets will be modified with Freightdog's corrected fin and Bren Gun's ladders. Cluttering up the hide will be a pair of "Y" loader GSE, Houchin GPU, tow arm, fire extinguishers, lineys and MT. The MT (motor transport) will include an Oxford Die Cast TACR2 fire engine, a 4 ton bowser (using a part finished model), a repainted Unimog from Wiking and hopefully a 1/4 Land Rover from Oxford Die Cast. PSP from Flightpath will be used for the taxi ways on a scratchbuilt base that has yet to be finalised for size. The outstanding pieces are the 1/4 Land Rover, replacement fins, rocket pods, maybe some resin seats and decals for jets from the same Sqn, and of course a suitably sized base.....and the time. Any comments advice or information is welcome especially if you have first hand knowledge of RAFG Harrier hide ops. The kit, I have two of these. The engine detailing kit. Only one aircraft will be detailed. Y loaders. The aircraft with the engine kit will have the weapons removed from the outer wing pylons and posed on this GSE. Both aircraft will have a ladder fitted. The crew in jet will have the pilot seated or climbing the steps. There should be plenty of PSP here for a diorama. Unimogs were used by Harrier sqns in the field and particularly in RAF Germany. This will need to be repainted but conveniently is LH drive. TACR2's were used for field ops as far as my research has shown, this should make an interesting corner filler. The Airfix (ex-JB Models) Bedford 4 ton MK bowser. This is a part finished model that I am rescuing from the shelf of doom. The RAF roundel comes from a Kingfisher decal sheet. You may be wondering why the cab is covered, when I was building this I used maskol to protect the transparency but I forgot to remove it from the inside before gluing the cab to the base....purple windows isn't a good look so some painted tissue paper and thread was used to create this effect. I believe it was common to thrown hessian sheet over windscreens to prevent reflections when in the field so this should fit in well after some gentle weathering.
