Think I picked this it up on Ebay at somepoint. Anyway, my first actual jet for a blog that has ‘jet’ as the first word in it’s descriprion.
As with a lot of Matchbox kits, a very simple build, which I managed to mess up, but more of that later.
At the time of building this kit, the world is in the grip of the Corona Virus pandemic, therefore I’m stuck at home, and getting non-essential supplies is not top priority, plus having to watch the cash flow, due to being furloughed from work. On a positive, I’m getting lots of model making done.
Anyway, on to the build, which is documented in photos.
Well as mentioned above, I messed up adding the jet nozzles, so had to mess about filling the holes where the nozzels sit, and then cutting the back off the nozzels so they sat a bit closer to the fuselage.
Another thing that I should have done differently, I should have added the to wing wheel units before addign the centre landing gear. This was I could have cut down to size the central landing gear so that all wheels touch the ground. Oh well, lesson learned, I have 3 other 1/72 Harriers in the stash, 3 different marks.
