FS: 3 X RR Pegasus from 1:48th scale Tamiya Harrier kit.

That is correct folks, three RR Pegasus engine shapes with moving nozzles. 

I was quite disgusted with the Tamiya 1:48th scale Harrier kits and destroyed the fuselage parts for all three kits  There may have been four kits but I can only account for three engine shapes. 

Asking price for all three Pegasus is $20.00 plus postage or best offer. 

What can you do with these things?  Well, I suppose you could try to shoe horn one into an actual Harrier model or you could just put it on a stand and use it for background clutter.

Put it on your "tab" Greg?

The Pegasus parts were the only thing of merit in those Tamiya Harrier kits.  TBH, the claimed 1:48th scale might actually be closer to 1:50th scale as the kits are from that era when both scales were flaunted as the scale of choice for model aircraft in something larger than 1:72nd scale. 

Plus there is no other model of the RR Pegasus available with working nozzles :)

If others want them, go for it.  As I said, I am tempted but for the life of me can't think of where/how I would use them.

Perhaps the opportunity to be the only one in your neighborhood/community/county to have these unique items?  :)
