Hasegawa PT28 07228 AV-8B Harrier II Plus Ace Of Spades 1/48 Plastic Model Kit
DescriptionThere was great cheering in the scale modelling world when the PT28 AV-8B Harrier II Plus box kit came out. This has been a very popular model since it was first released in 2004. The cleverly engineered parts and clearly illustrated instruction sheet in the box would make modellers of any skill level create this bird that the US Marines has always been proud of.
The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) AV-8B Harrier II is a single-engine ground-attack aircraft that constitutes the second generation of the Harrier Jump Jet family. Capable of vertical or short takeoff and landing (V/STOL), the aircraft was designed in the late 1970s as an Anglo-American development of the British Hawker Siddeley Harrier, the first operational V/STOL aircraft. Named after a bird of prey, it is primarily employed on light attack or multi-role missions, ranging from close air support of ground troops to armed reconnaissance. The AV-8B is used by the United States Marine Corps (USMC), the Spanish Navy, and the Italian Navy. A variant of the AV-8B, the British Aerospace Harrier II, was developed for the British military, while another, the TAV-8B, is a dedicated two-seat trainer.
VMA-231 of the Marines is the main operator of AV-8B Harrier II Plus Ace of Spades.
