Thanks for the review Tim. If you want some inspiration for your build, check out this thread (in Romanian). He is building three Harriers.

You've got to love that box art, looks great, the Harrier having just smoked the A-4. The guy ejecting really adds to the scene! Looks like a good kit to build. Russell

Hi Ben and Russel
Fantastic link Ben and your correct, 1-0-9 work is inspiring. I was thinking about acquiring the Sea Harrier FRS2 and I think that article has made up my mind. I will start building my Harrier in about a week. Rowan [Merlin] kindly sent me Pavla FRS1 upgrades:
So I will let you know how it goes. I must admit though I am tempted to fill in the panel lines the way 1-0-9 has done.
All the best

Hello all!
Is this a new mold or a reboxing?
