In-Box Browse with Dave Coward (March 2021)
Take a browse inside the box now…
This looks like a nice kit from the box but I’ll reserve my judgement on it until I build it as the FRS1 looked great in the box but was a ‘challenge’ to build. Some of the sprues are legacy sprues from previous versions and this is quite obvious when you look at them as the moulding is quite soft and there is quite a bit of flash. That said the new sprues look great; they are flash-free, the surface detail is sharp and a quick dry-fitting shows they appear to go together without any issues.
A decent early Harrier has been needed for some time as both the Airfix and Monogram (I think) kits are definitely showing their age now and need a lot of work to get a good/accurate model from them.
Overall this looks promising but keep an eye out for the full build to see if it lives up to expectations!!
