Mitko Nikitov takes a look at Kinetics, 1/48th two seater Harrier, which gives you the T2/T2A/T2N/T4/T4N/T8 versions in several decal options.

The photo etched sheet might be small, but at least it has seat harnesses. An excellent inclusion for a any kit, particularly as so much of the cockpit can be seen under that large canopy

A friend is building this Harrier right now and is totally in agreement with your negative comments about the instruction sheet.

Your other remark: " to offer a QR code or a link, where you can download proper instructions and use them with ease. If not the whole sheet" also seems spot on.

It amazes me that so few kit manufacturers bother to have a proper website with instructions, photo's ... I guess they must have all those things readily available?

Got to agree with you there Drabslab and Mitko, the instruction sheet, especially the painting and marking guide does leave a lot to be desired.
Looking forward to building this kit though, just waiting for the Eduard updates to come in.
