Superscale 48-927: AV-8B+ Harrier II

Units: See Review




Scott Van Aken

For the second sheet on the AV-8B+, we cover three additional squadrons.

First is VMA-211 sporting mission markings from its use in Iraqi Freedom.

Next is a VMA-231 aircraft; the 'normal' one in the batch.

The third plane is also an Iraqi Freedom veteran from VMA-214 and has the mission markings to prove it.

There is no recommended kit, but the Hasegawa AV-8B+ is the best bet. You could do the older Monogram version and then toss out some major money on conversion parts, but why bother when Hasegawa has not only done all the work for you, but priced the kit at something reasonable (at least for today's new kits).

Full data and stencil markings are provided for two of the three subjects.
