Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR.4N
« on: June 20, 2018, 02:52:51 pm »
Another result of me taking my "Getoffyourassium" anti-procrastination drug.

You see I am the Crown Prince of Procrastination. But I went to my family doctor who me told there is a new drug to help with modelling procrastination. It is called: "Getoffyourassium".   And it's a miracle drug. I am starting with a dose of 2.5 Kg per day and already I see results.

One item I know is in your thoughts is what a T-tailed twin tailed Harrier / AV-8 would look like? Well you can sleep soundly tonight as I have found the solution.

This is the 1/72 Fujimi GR.3. I used 1/100 A-6 horizontal stabs and 1/72 Do 217 vertical stabs. I will be adding other surprises as the build moves forward. This kit donated it's horizontal stabs to my AV-8X build.

Oh, like the tail!  Great idea.

Maybe GR.3N?  4 implies a two seater to me anyhow.

Looking forward to this one.

Thanks. Inspiration came from the T-46 and the A-10.

4 = Non-standard numbering scheme
N = NATO special design

Backstory will tell you why.

And is this  "Getoffyourassium" available on the NHS ?

Yes. Here in Ontario, Canada it is covered under our equivalent which is OHIP. Just need to pay for the dispensing fee and a trolley as I buy it in 225 Kg batches (90 day supply).

Ah right. As a pensioner and diabetic (type 2) I don't even have to pay for the prescription, can probably get free home delivery as well  ;D
