KIN48035 - Kinetic 1/48 British Royal Navy FRS.1 Sea Harrier

R 1,149.95

One of the "new generation" Kinetic kits. An exceptionally well engineered rendition of the FRS 1. By far the best Harrier kit available on the market today.

From the review by Brett Green from www.hyperscale.com the following summary:

Recommendation:

This is another really nice modern subject from Kinetic. It simply blows away the older Airfix and Tamiya Sea Harrier FRS.1 kits. Kinetic's all-new 1/48 scale SHAR is well detailed, offers many useful options and alternative position parts, and provides a wealth of ordnance. Engineering appears straightforward and it should not be a difficult build. Highly Recommended. Decals are designed by Crossdelta and luxuriously printed by Cartograf.

The model may be finished in any of the operational schemes - Extra Dark Sea Grey and White, overall Extra Dark Sea Grey, overall Dark Sea Grey and overall Medium Sea Grey.

The main camouflage variations are noted below, but thanks to the inclusion of a number jungle in various colours and sizes plus individual serial numbers, markings for all 57 Royal Navy aircraft plus 32 from the Indian NAS are actually included on the decal sheet.
