Sword 1/72 scale Harrier Mk.2/2A-TAV-8A

By Paul Boyer
Published: November 5, 2012
Sword's new 1/72 scale Harrier I Mk.2/2A-TAV-8A plastic model kit is a welcome addition to fill a weak spot in the hobby market. 

The fuselage (except for alternate two-piece nose cones) is molded in halves. Optional short and tall vertical fins are also provided, as are a pair of Aden gun pods for the aircraft’s belly. The sectioned canopy includes the back-seater’s secondary windscreen. The decals are beautifully printed and provide markings for RAF No. 3 squadron, No. 233 Operational Conversion
Unit, and the U.S. Marines VMAT-203 outfit.
