Hasegawa Aircraft 1/72 AV8B Harrier II Attacker Kit
The world's first practical V/STOL attack aircraft, the Harrier first flew in 1960. Attracting the attention of the US Marine Corps for its potential as a ground support fighter, the plane was adopted as the AV-8A, but several design shortcomings had to be ironed out before the plane could go on line. These changes would take much longer than expected before being realized on the new AV-8B, which finally matched USMC performance stats.
