Here we have a little more Hawker Whiffery :D

1/72 BAe Sea Harrier FRS1 (Kit #A04051)

The Story
The Swedish Combat Aircraft of choice in the mid 1980's was the SAAB J37 Viggen. This was a high-performance aircraft ideally suited to Swedens defence requirements with its STOL capabilities. SAAB had also been tasked for development of the Sea Viggen variant (code-named SH37) for use over the harsh salt water environments (as well as carrier operations for potential export), which were envisaged during Cold War escalations over the Baltic with the Easten block, especially with the Soviet Satellite States just over the sea.

However, the Swedish Defence Ministry watched with interest the excellent performance of the Sea Harrier in the Falklands Conflict and decided to place the Sea Viggen program on hold and evaluate the Sea Harrier FRS1 instead, seeing the possibility of having 'Sea-Control' Assault Carriers, carrying VTOL aircraft such as the Harrier to extend its defence capabilities, as well as introducing VSTOL capability within the Swedish forests.

The Build
Build thread is in Airfix 2014 What-If GB Mop_the_Panda's The SHAR of Sweden :)

Long time not posting! Kinda lost my modelling mojo but still have a stupidly large stash of kits and want to get back into it again, so fingers crossed.
Immediate reason for popping back is the trail of destruction Photobucket has left with their sudden change of ToS and picture hosting!
I have updated my Portfolio with in almost all cases the same photos, but hosted on Flickr now instead. Still got one more to sort out, but nearly there.
Hopefully see you guys all again soon and will be reposting builds :)
