This AV-8B is a replica wood scale model of the original AV-8B Harrier II aircraft originally developed by McDonnell Douglas and British Aerospace. The Harrier is a light ground attack and destroy surface target aircraft. 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, and the Italian and Spanish Navies.
The AV-8B Harrier II model is an authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft that has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed. It also arrives with an attractive wood base for display.
