made by Hawker Siddeley was the first and original Harrier Jump Jet produced. Royal Air Force and US Marines received almost identical aircraft in the first years of the plane’s production run which also received similar camouflage schemes. The pattern applied was in two variations. On the top surfaces of the Harrier, both US Marines AV-8A and RAF GR.1 and GR.3s were the same. However, some of the Royal Air Force Harriers featured camouflage pattern on the bottom side of the aircraft. During Winter Operations, Royal Air Force Harriers received temporary Winter Camouflage, featured in this set. On rare occasions, US Marines Harriers appeared in similar winter camo.
was only a temporary application, that is why often on reference pictures scratches and missing patches of the white paint are visible. Most of the winter camo schemes appeared in similar fashion, however some of them featured minor differences in the spots application. The Winter wash was applied directly over the standard two- or three-tone camouflage scheme. That standard paint scheme is also available from DN Models as a dedicated mask set, made for Kinetic’s AV-8A, Gr.1 and Gr.3 Harrier jets. The set is also usable with Tamiya old kits, both in its standard form and winter camouflage. The winter camouflage was used on later generations Harriers as well.
