Manston Harrier

Post by tc2324 » Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:37 pm

A little something, (if you can call the Airfix 1/24 scale kit `little`), I have been working on and off for the last few months based on one of the residents now based at the Manston fire dump.

I wanted to do something a little different from the usual Harrier builds you see and after my visit to Manston last September, this wreck caught me eye.

To put it into context what I was trying to replicate here are a couple of pictures of the real thing....,

Excellent! What a great concept.

Your model looks just as sad as the real thing :-(

Cheers mate.

God that invoked some memories from many moons ago, I`d forgotten about that `battle damage` phase.
