Trumpeter 1/32 Harrier GR.7

By Piero De Santis

This is my latest Harrier in 1/32.

The kit I started with is the same old Trumpeter series... unfortunately Tamiya doesn't want to give us this gift…

The model represents a RAF Harrier GR.7 based at Laarbruch in Germany in 1994.

It has a beautiful tail adorned with the colors of the IV(AC) Squadron: this choice was adopted as a safety measure in terms of "visibility" during very low altitude flights and I believe also because this Harrier was used to participate in the summer airshows of that year.

Speaking of the model, as I have already said with the previous Harriers that I have made, there are many things that need to be modified and added to this kit:

The model is painted using Gunze (H) and Tamiya (XF) acrylic paints: The topside is in NATO Green, obtained with a mix of H-64 and H-309.

The underside is in Lichen Green, obtained with a mix of XF-65 and XF-73.

The decals come from various sheets (Model Alliance, Xtradecals, Zotz…).
