Very nice model! I didn't realize you did kits!
Oh yeah, I've been making them for years now, one of my biggest hobbies. It's also the main reason I have a snazzy display cabinet, my figures are just an added beneficiary of it.

Great Pertwees btw, they look like a line up of a 70's cop show, 'The Pertweessionals' :lol:
What paints are you using for it? My airfix kits are all WWII or fleet air arm, so interested about the camo.
Al Dewar, if you are reading this, please give me a job/ all variants of all figures you have ever produced (delete as applicable).

I use Revell Aqua Colour, swear by them over anything else. For Second World War RAF I use Nato Olive and Dark Earth for early camo, Grey and Olive Green for late war camo. For FAA I use Sea Green and Dark Sea Blue I believe. Although I'd have to know the aircraft to be more specific.

Oh no, I meant what you’re using for the harrier! :lol: I’m thinking of doing a harrier myself, so I was curious.

Oh right I see. Silliboi. :lol:

It depends on what Harrier you're doing really, mine's an 80's GR.3 so I'm probably gonna use Grey/Nato Olive, Revell Grey has a blueish tint to it rather than being plain grey.

I’m not sure. Probably the GR. 3, like you are, but it’s still all very much hypothetical at the moment :lol: which one would you recommend?

Well I've made two others: 1/48 FA2 and 1/72 GR.9A. I'd stay away from the GR.9A, and the GR.7 because they're essentially the same, I found it a pain to build, FA2 was fine though. Not sure about any others, depends on what scale you like and how much detail really.

Thanks :) 1/72 is what I do mostly. Might do the FA2 then.

The GR.3 is going together very nicely as well so I highly recommend that too, it is 1/48 as well though. I'm a 1/72 man myself mostly.
