Thanks to long time Friend and paint shop owner Thomas Gerks (www.gerks.de) our Harrier GR. Mk 3 Cockpitsection (ZD670) has received this wonderful new colourscheme. Dave Cotton of BAE System was so helpful to provide us with original paintscheme plans.

Thomas Gerks, painted exactly acording to these plans – still missing is the Pilot’s name on the right hand cockpitside, Squadron Markings and Caution Markings. With original plans on hand we will also paint these in the next few days.

Our Harrier  was a colourful bird indeed, as it was painted in a full tiger scheme in the early 2000’s and it was displayed hanging from the ceiling in London’s Trocadero.
