Harrier Jump Jet

Harrier plastic model by Philip & Kirt BlattenbergerAs part of my attempt (unsuccessful) to get Philip interested in building models, we built this Harrier kit. It was sometime around 1996, when we were living in Palm Bay, FL.

You can't see it from this picture, but scale camouflage was done using a cardboard cutout mask of the pattern outlines, then holding it just above the base color and spraying. It produced a nice blended line rather than a sharp edge that using masking tape would have left.
