Hi folks, latest project finished, this time it's the Freightdog Hawker P1154 'Harrier', released recently under the Silver Cloud label, tooled by Anigrand, (a few QC issues but nothing major). Extra to this one is the brand new weapons set available seperately which personally I think adds a lot of character to the model, I will be adding these to other models as time goes by....hope Colin can persuade Richard to create some more sets of this quality!!.
Built for a couple of magazines as review and special article items, it should be appearing soon, (I have included the full build in the review for anyone interested).

In some shots you may notice the extra SNEB packs fitted under the intakes, these are from the spares box...

Anyway hope you fellas like it....great kit, easy build and a very nice edition to ever growing collection of 'what-if-if-only's', !!

Andy... :cheers:

Great!!! :wub:  17 Sqn markings look good on it.  Nice job Andy! :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Thanks Mossie, I agree, cool markings, bit of research turns up several choices for the 'whiffer'....

Thanks Van, I think enough of us have one of these tucked away to start a GB all of its own. A tiger meet might be nice... :wub:
