Does that come with the T2 tail already, or do you have to get that from elsewhere?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I'd say it comes with....as it's 18 pound for the set. And it says so.....looks absolutely stunning. Definitely want one ! I think as soon as I get these Boomerangs done it's going to be Harrier time.  :thumbsup:

This one one I was going to scratch build for SMW this year but ran out of interest. Might finish it anyway to see how well my build compares against the conversion set. So far I am using the Xtrakit FA2 with a Heller/Bobcat T4 tail.

Love the wing tip floats, Martin  ;)

I noticed a completed Sidetrack on one of the club/branch/SIG stands at SMW.

I saw that one as well, on the Shropshire stand I think.
I always hope for the best.

I think I need one of those conversions for this below, it's my Sea Harrier F.13 or F.14 (haven't decided yet) but the idea is it's an AEW of sorts.

That looks good :thumbsup:
You just need to finish it now ;D
Like so many of my models, yours seems to have been
Waiting a while to get finished :cheers:
Personally I think they get better if one lets them 'Age' ;) :drink:
Before one 'Finishes' them  :blink:

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

You're right Keith, I've got too many that are ""nearly"" done.  Like someone else here, so many ideas and not enough time ----

Also got a Lonewulf Side-track Harrier underway, not a bad conversion set either as designed for the Airfix Sea Harrier FA2 kit so the cuts required are along panel lines, recommended  :thumbsup:.

Hopefully we may see Martins completed example by the weekend, should the painting go to plan  ;D
