Building Sharkey’s SHAR

Cdr "Sharkey" WardAs a proud member of the forums over at I’m currently working on a 1/48 Tamiya Sea Harrier FRS.1 (XZ451) as flown by Cdr “Sharkey” Ward during the Falklands conflict.

As someone rightly put it, Sharkey Ward is the closest the UK has come to a Fighter Ace since WW2, and his thrilling account of the Harrier’s role in the Falklands in his book “Sea Harrier Over the Falklands: A Maverick at War” is not to be missed.

Follow the build thread here (it doesn’t contain any swearing yet)…

Thanks for visiting!

I write this blog for fun, to share what I've learned, and to share my builds with you. If you like what you see here please leave a comment, and head over to facebook and like my page!
