This book contains detailed instructions on building the AV-8B II Plus Harrier 1/48 scale model aircraft from Hasegawa's kit 07228. I take the model kit instructions from Hasegawa and break them up into individual steps. I reorder the steps so that the small pieces (antennas, etc.) are assembled last which reduces the risk of damage when building the model. The steps are organized to insert the paint and decal steps in the best spot. I also incorporate Eduard’s Photo Etch kit 49271 and 49068 and Aires Cockpit kit 4199 and Wheel Well kit 4201 in with Hasegawa’s instructions. As most modelers know, it can be tricky to go back and forth between the model kit instructions and the aftermarket kit instructions. I take out the guess work and did that for you. The PE steps are colored in yellow and the Aires steps are colored in blue making them easy to skip if you just have the basic model. This book provides a little history of the Harrier, photos of the model kit contents including the photo etch frets, a detailed list of tools that I used to build this model, along with a list of paints. The actual instruction section contains 786 steps and 104 figures that tell you what to dry fit, glue, and/or paint for each individual piece. Each step instruction shows the source (i.e., either Hasegawa, Aires or Eduard’s instruction) along with a block to mark that you completed the step.
