Gorgeous scheme!!  Be interesting to see what decal company produces it first.  That's the Night Attack variant of the AV-8B and it seems to be the rarest of the Hasegawa 1/48 Harrier Ii kits available.

Supersonic Harrier !  The idea here is McDonnell Douglas used bit's and bobs from various aircraft they produced and came up with this.

Well it does look a little like it, but my project keeps with the cold/hot exhaust concept usage of the Harrier.  There's no lift jets or remote lift fans.

I've a thread on it here:

Export version of the Sea Harrier FA.2 to France with the SEM radar replacing the Blue Vixen radar and carrying Exocets instead of Sea Eagles.  Perhaps operated off Mistral-class helicopter carriers with or without the addition of a "ski-jump"?

AV-8B+ variants for Britain:
Harrier FGR.11 - essentially the AV-8B+ with British electronic countermeasures, the extra pylons used by the RAF, and common ejection seats with the Harrier GR.5/7/9

Sea Harrier FAA.3 - similar to the above except usign the FA.2's radar and radome to ease the support requirements and using a straked version of the FA.2/FRS.1 cannon pods in place of the GAU-12 and ammo pods, again to esse the support requirements.

In 1969, the Harrier GR.1 was demonstrated on Argentina's aircraft carrier.  What if the Argentine Navy had bought them?  Fast forward to 1982 and a Malvinas-based (Harrier GR.53) Matador with Sidewinders on the outboard pylons, Martin Pescadors on the inboard pylons, and the guidance pod for the ASM's on the centerline hardpoint.  Might make things a bit more "interesting" for the Sea Harriers of the fleet.

Update: Corrected year of demonstratopm.  It was conducted when the carrier the Argentinians bought from the Netherlands sailed down the English channel.

They did always call it the “jump jet”.
Are we sure this wasn’t a build by ericr?

I certainly wish I had !  ;D ;D ;D
