Harrier T2/T2A/T2N/T4/T4N/T8 Two Seater Trainer

Kit No: 48040

Scale: 1/48

Type: Injection Moulded Plastic

Manufacturer: Kinetic

The Hawker Siddeley Harrier must be one of the most famous of British aircraft types. It is almost instantly recognisable by modellers, enthusiasts and the not so interested folk alike. It may be hard to believe but no manufacturer to date has produced the two seat version of this icon in 1/48 scale so when Kinetic models embarked on the quest to provide the modeller with an up to date mainstream injection moulded kit of the seafaring Harriers in FRS1 and FA2 guise, the transition to a two seater seemed a natural choice.

The Sea Harrier FA2 was released in 2014 followed by the FRS1 a year later; the two year wait for the new T bird has seemed almost insurmountable. I was lucky enough to be informed by the Editor that he had managed to obtain a prerelease copy of the kit. There are not many kits that would have me clearing the work bench of current builds but the anticipation got the better of me, coupled with a gentleman’s agreement the kit would be ready for Scale ModelWorld in November, and work began the same day.

With the customary photos and in box review quickly completed and submitted construction began.
