Hasegawa 1:48 AV-8B Harrier II BuNo. 162943/CG-05, MAG-13(forward)

The Kit

This model was built using the Hasegawa "Desert Harrier" boxing. It is a pretty straight forward build and the only additions I used which were not included in the kit where the Mk.82SE "Snakeye" retarded bombs, AIM-9 missile, and the pilot figure. Painting was done using Model Master FS35237 and 36375 acrylic paints. Kit decals were used. I left off the Arabic script and mission tally decal as those markings were done post-war in real life.
