1:72 Humbrol Bobcat Harrier T2 XW272, 20 Sqn RAF operated by 3 Sqn, 1970s
Interestingly the kit also features the rarely used extended “ferry wing tips”, to match these I pulled a pair of ferry tanks from an old tooling Airfix GR3 (adding a couple of fins as the Airfix tanks only have 2…).
Luckily I found a couple of photos online of a T2 with the extended wingtips and ferry tanks. This was XW272 “P” and carried the squadron crest of 20Sqn on the nose although it was actually in use by 3Sqn at the time en route down to Cyprus from Germany.
The decals are a decal box dive special with the serials assembled letter by letter. Paint is as my usual Orange Line lacquers from Hataka.
The Harrier hide is a vac-form made by Amera Mouldings
