This beauty of a model plane is of the AV-8B Harrier II Plus aircraft developed by McDonnell Douglas and British Aerospace. The Harrier is a light ground attack and destroy surface target aircraft. It is commonly referred to as a Jump Jet because of its ability for vertical or short takeoff & landing capabilities. The Harrier II was the second generation of the Harrier family and it is primarily flown by the U.S. Marine Corp.
The McDonnell Douglas AV-8B Harrier II Plus model is crafted from pressure cast composite resin, and is a striking aviation gift with its impressive looks. This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced using exact blueprint specifications. Each model is meticulously hand painted giving the aircraft a deep, rich finish. The result is a museum quality sculpture to be admired, and proudly put on display. A handsome display base is included.
