Airfix 1/24 Harrier GR3 [Part 1]

The Harrier jumpjet has always fascinated me when I was a young boy in the late 70s. This was a plane like no other, performing amazing acrobats in mid air like no other, due to its VTOL capability and jet design arrangement. Today, it still has a special place in my modelling heart. The ultimate Harrier kit still remains the 1/24 scale Airfix giant. Though a bit dated in terms of details and coming a little short in terms of accuracy and fit, the kit still packed a wallop when it came to size and sheer impact.

Conversion of a Mirage IIIC to a IIIE

I was playing with the idea to convert one of the new tooled Mirage IIIC kits to a Mirage IIIE for some time. I finally did something about it during my last 3-month work assignment rotation to the Middle East last February. For the conversion, I dug up my Italeri Mirage IIIE from my stash and bought a Hobbyboss IIIC to kit bash. I have the Eduard kit as well but decided it was better to use the cheaper more available HB kit instead.

Academy 1/72 F2H-3 "Banshee"

The name Banshee comes from a Celtic mythological she-demon where when the wailing of the banshee was heard, it was a harbinger of death. Despite the terrible creature this plane was named upon, it is actually a beautiful jet fighter. The F2H "Banshee" was a military carrier-based jet fighter aircraft used by the United States Navy from 1948 to 1959. 250 F2H-3 were built.
