Much work and slow progress, but I finished the cockpit yesterday, and next step is to mask it and start airbrushing! Hopefully something will be done this weekend.

While I did the final touches on the bradley I started gluing together this flying machine, and now I have some minor details left before painting. I guess my airbrush will come to use again.. :)
It is Airfix 1/48 BAe Sea Harrier FRS.1, and my first aircraft since I was a kid. It will be fun to see what I can do with this thing.
I have always liked the Harrier, and at this scale it really look like the beast it is!

I also had a chance to try out airbrushing at a larger scale, something I have been wanting for some time, and I think the result is great, the shading comes more naturally and the highlights really get something to play against. Another good thing with larger scale is that the camera recognizes the models faces and takes a wee bit better pictures.
Nuff said, enjoy the diorama, and click the images to get a better view!
The idéa behind this scene is that a lone Bradley making it's way through the desert is having some engine trouble, the transported fireteam keep an eye on the horizon and the driver goes out to have a look, and explains to the team leader that "this might take a while".
