Finall got the light tent and camera set-up again, so have gotten around to taking some 'beauty' shots of the Harrier I finished last year (in-progress thread is here ).

Box top art work by Koike Shigeo I was looking to replicate

Fantastic work! One of the best, if not the best, harriers I have seen. We'll have to change your name to the jump jet master!

I just had a read of your build thread - very impressive, and the end result looks awesome. Great photography too.

Lovely build and box art inspiration is well executed as well. I've always fancied doing a Lanc (since I was a nipper!) based on the classic Roy Cross box art.
