The CMK US Navy pilot figures come with the older helmet type. During OIF the AV-8B pilots wore the newer lightweight helmets. Here I have removed the old visor mounting and replaced it with a Milliput lightweight visor.

…and you thought that once you fixed the wing to LEX join it was all downhill. Well sorry but the joint between the front of the LEX and the forward fuselage is also a shocker. The join between the fuselage and the intakes is also not the best.
Starting to finally look like a Harrier.
Pylons are on, wheel wells are masked (with Mr Masking Sol, again the first time I have used this product).
Some pretty nasty gaps in and around the intake lip as well.
Notice the nasty step at the bottom of the intake lip. This will not be easy to sand!
The scratch built nose wheel well gets a coat of white.
