Did USMC Harrier II Plus at one time use a color scheme cosisiting of the following FS numbers?
Top - FS35237 Medium Gray
Middle - FS36320 Dark Ghost Gray
Bottom - FS36375 Light Ghost Gray
I could have sworn I saw this scheme on a Harrier at an Offutt AFB air show in the early 2000's.
My current book, kit and decal references suggest the following scheme:
FS36118 Gunship Gray
FS36231 Dark Gull Gray
FS36320 Dark Ghost Gray
TIA,
J.F.

hello,
I used this link to draw my paint tones to suit a particular time period of color/weathered/ and scheme reference.

35237 was listed by Hasegawa on their original AV-8B kit.

See: http://www.kitreview.com/reviews/harrierreviewlb_1.htm



I was at one point researching why and when these changed, must get back to that one of these days!
