Mark I 1/144 Harrier Gr.1/3/AV-8A/C Detailing and Weapon Set
By Matt Bittner
Mark I had recently release earlier versions of the Harrier, namely the Gr.1/3 and AV-8A/C. To go along with that release, they have released this Detailing and Weapon Set which contains more than just ordnance. In the box you'll find:
- Air intake (starboard)
- Air intake (port)
- Martin-Baker Mk.9 seat
- GBU-16 Paveway II (x2)
- Matra 155 rocket launcher (x2)
- Mk.83 1000lb bomb (x2)
- GP 1000lb bomb (retarded, x2)
- Mk.82 500lb bomb (retarded, x2)
All pieces are nicely molded and look great. The excellent thing about the separate intakes are the "bleed-doors" are molded open so if you want to display your Mark I Harrier with these doors open, this is a set to pick up. In addition, the resin seat looks better than the plastic injected one, included with the kit.
The instructions show possible load-outs of the weapons so study photographs of the aircraft you're modeling and add the weapons you need, using this set. All in all a great addition to their injected kit.
While I would like to thank Kits-Shop for the review kit, unfortunately they went out of business.
