Oh look I finished on on Telford Eve. I normally cease all build activity in the week leading up to Telford, to allow for packing the display up for transport from the Northants Swamps to the darkest depths of Shropshire.



Another Dutch Navy build. Sea Harrier F/A-2 shore based when not at sea at NAS Valkenburg in the Mid 2000's. In this case deployed to the Baltic states to take a turn at the NATO Baltic air policing mission. Hence the full AMRAAM load out.

This is a follow on from the Dutch Sea Harrier FRS-1 I did back in December 2018.

Airfix Kit built OOB with the belly AMRAAM pylons being Freighdog items. Paint job is mainly CJ Aerosol rattle cans, RAF Dark Sea Grey over all, with Medium Sea Grey for the nose cone. Simply put the reverse of the scheme mainly used by the Royal Navy.
Decals are a mix of the kit and spares box.
