Could look quite interesting if combined with the original Maritime Harrier minimum-change conversion.  I still want to apply that nose to a Harrier T.4N or T.8, with radar, for full-up training without need for another training aircraft.

Found this on FB.

The owner of Lonewulf models has stated: "As I am working on another Sea Harrier project, I am also going to re-release the Sidetrack Harrier conversion as it has not been out for a while."





To best of my knowledge, Blackbird Models is the only distributor of his products:  https://www.blackbirdmodels.co.uk/lone-wulf-models-96-c.asp

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

And, sadly, they seem to be OOS on so much of his stuff.  But, yeah, I'd go for a couple of this conversion and put one on a Harrier T.10/T.12 as a command and control link.

Please let him now that I'm interested in more than one, plsu more than one of the new Hunter items you showed on the Hunter thread.  One thought, does anyone make a Fairey Fireflash for use on Hunter and Swit models?

Pavla Evan, and I think there's another company that does them too, thinking maybe AlleyCat

The AlleyCat Models site still offers its Supermarine Swift F7 Conversion for £14.   https://www.alleycatmodels.co.uk/supermarine-swift-f7-conversion-6522-p.asp

The Pavla U72-175 set has two resin Fireflash missiles for the Swift F.7 but doesn't show up on the pavlamodels.cz website.

Found a British seller on Ebay who had just the Fireflash missiles and pylons.  Ordered a couple sets from him; good man, I've bought from him before.  If nothing else, 'twill be a different item to hang under a Hunter.

I believe it's one of the DB Harriers during development and testing leading to the Sea harrier FRS.1.  There was also one flying with an aerodynamic shape for a radome to be fitted to a standard Harrier for a minimum-change Maritime Harrier.
