Hawker Siddley Harrier GR1 1/72 Scale Plastic Model Kit
The Hawker Siddeley Harrier is a truly unique aircraft. It was the first VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) Combat aircraft in the world. Developed from The Hawker Kestrel of the mid 60s, The Hawker Siddeley Harrier "jump jet" brought new meaning to the term "close air support." The Harrier was so successful that the United States Marine Corps purchased a licence to build the aircraft for its own use.
Based predominantly in West Germany to face any potential Eastern Bloc threat, the Harrier force also saw some service in Belize, as well as various goodwill tours around the globe. While the GR.1 never saw any combat, the next version, the GR.3, proved the Harrier's reputation.
The Airfix kit of the Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR1 is an industry standard of this iconic British design. It is provided with two marking options. including one for an aircraft that was stationed in West Germany until the end of the Cold War
