After seeing Thor's attempt at the Maintrack vacform I got mine back out and grafted an old C scale 2 seat Harrier conversion and a lot of filler onto it as there must have been a need for a 2 seat trainer version of the P1154.  its probably going to have an early 70s scheme.

Oh very nice Gary. No doubt she will be a stunner once you have worked you magic on her.
I always hope for the best.
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Hi Lazlo

Looking good, should be nice with our other 1154's as my RAF one in now in wraparround.

As to the trainer, would a picture of the mock up be handy as i found one on this web page. :D  :D  :D

thanks for the comments and the pic, the 2 seater doesn't look too different but i couldn't put a fuselage plug in it now.  Any ideas for a colour scheme?

Hi Gary

Well its only the mock-up so i guess the intahes are not fitted in the photo just their bulkhead (well it works for me !!!!).

As for Colour schemes you could go standard Harrier T-2/T-4 with the DSG/DG possibly wraparround like mine or perhaps a standard RAF trainer scheme Red/White & Grey or the later Black scheme, you could do RN style in Black using 899 markings. You could go operational with a laser designator pod on the centre line and LGB on the outer wing pylons acting as a target designator for other aircraft (as per Gulf War Bucccs).

Right need to look at doing that Airbrake if possible and finding a suitable front U/C leg as i have gone for Harrier bits rather than the kits badly formed metal jobs.

Speaking of Harriers if the 1154 s the operational variant howabout a Harrier T-2 as a VTOl basic trainer ?, in early Hawk markings ?
