  1. Hi gents, got a couple of questions regarding recce and twoseater Hawker Hunters, in coincidence with the imminent release of 1:144 kits from Mark I. Recce - I found out that the recce nose consists of the tip-point camera, sometimes replaced with a solid cap. But, I need more info about the side and down looking windows. It appears, that there are mostly only two windows - port and starboard. BUT, Omani Hunters FR.10 (and FGA.73A/B modified with recce nose) shows that there is a THIRD camera window pointing downwards - as shown here Recce Hunter back in UK So my question is - was this kind of recce nose Oman-specific ? Or used by other operators ? Twoseaters - Info about gun config. From the pictures I found for various operators, 3 possible configs are known - port, starboard, BOTH. In my case, Oman T.66B, it looks like they had cannon on both sides. Again, was there any rule ? Or could any operator ask for a specific config ? I already did a table with this kind of info, confirmed from pics, you can find it here - Twoseater Hunters I know that Omani Hunters were updated even more with added Sidewinder pylons, chaff/flare launchers and LORAN antenna ... I know, a lot of questions, but I will try to build the new Mark I kits .... Thanks and have a great day. Jakub
  2. Mini mojo reviver - 1/72 builds of an Airfix Hurricane from the BoB 75th anniversary set and an Airfix Hunter from a 90s boxing. Both utterly out of the box, umpteen little things that I could have fixed but didn't. Made over a couple of days for the sheer fun of rattling through without overthinking things. Not microsol yet but wanted to upload pics before I pack them away over the weekend
  3. Revell Hunter FGA 9 1/32

    I've had the revell hunter for a while and wanted to build it but just haven't had the time since i gave been very busy for the last few months with exams. However, with my final exam this week the group build seemed like the perfect motivation to start the hunter as a summer project, since i never seem to finish models without the pressure of a GB! Im going to be building the hunter without aftermarket parts although i may get aftermarket decals as i am very tempted by the idea of modelling XE601, the 'rasberry ripple' hunter which was sold for spares use a few years ago, as it is a much more exciting scheme than the green and grey camoflage. I've been taking abit of a break from modelling and this will be the first ket of the year for me, and also my first 1/32 kit so im excited to see what it will be like making a larger model. So far i have only started the ejector seat but more progress should follow soon. Work has started on the ejector seat. I need some new paints as they have all started to dry up! Will
  4. Civil Hunters Allowed To Fly Again

    The ban on flying civilian hunters placed on them after the Shoreham crash has now been lifted, so they will be allowed to fly again although with the new regulations regarding maintainance and also not being able to do aerboatics, as with other classic jets. Hopefully this will liven up the classic jet scene a bit! http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalapplication.aspx?appid=11&catid=1&id=6886&mode=detail&pagetype=65
  5. As a side topic to the 'what should Airfix be making' and the inevitable 'why?' and 'why not' posts that follow can you list your personal wishlists in 3 categories: Near term - those you feel are likely to come to fruition in a year or two, even if you won't be buying it Medium term - within say 5 years, and can include those models You want to see that are a faintly realistic proposition. Long term - when you will be planning a release from your cryogenic chamber. (note: whilst the long term plans may include unlikely makes or marks, or even a corrected version of a current bestseller please try keep them fairly realistic - I doubt Airfix will be making a Tibetan homemade glider at any point despite the clamouring for one) .... Ok I'll start off (and I'll try to keep it as new kits only not rereleases) Near: Single seat Vamps P-47 (razor and bubble) D3A Val (extending the pacific WW2 niche) Buccaneer (a big UK seller and the old one is aged) Meteors (including at least 1 each T & NF) 2 seat Lightning (so many fighters, needs a matching trainer) Medium: Whirlwind (the forgotten WW2 fighter) DH106 Comet (4s please, RAF & Dan Air schemes) Victor (much demanded to replace the aging Matchbox) F-4 Phantoms (a European sized hole will persist unless FujiGawa get cheaper, or Revell add to their F) Panther/Cougar - (expanding the USN theme in to post war) Long: Vulcan (old mould is creaking) Wellesley (Forgotten type, fits with a WW2 desert theme) Gazelle (hard to find, simply needs updating to modern standards) Wasp/Scout (a missing link so long oop) Viggan (actually pretry much any Saab as the reborn Heller seen reluctant to mass market, and non-Gripens aren't commonplace) *I reserve the right to change my mind if I think of new options (and given time I could extend to top 100s!)
  6. Well, here goes! In at the deep end for my first WIP. All my previous builds have been projects that have several WIP's against them, but this is not seen so often. Continuing the theme of jets I worked on in the RAF, this will be a Hunter T7 to go with the Buccaneer in 237 OCU markings. I'm using the Academy Hunter F6 kit with the Heritage T7 conversion along with a few AM extra's On top of the conversion work, I'll also be trying to correct some of the Academy kits errors. Don't expect work to progress at a blistering rate, it took 6 months to build the Phantom!!! All the bits. The Heritage conversion set. The main fuselage components marked ready for cutting. Just off for a stiff drink before I get the razor saw out! Rob.
  7. We all know the sad history of HMS Barham and the film of her end.So went back to happy times and the model that Trumpeter produce of Barham 1941 is very close to 1937 version.Only have to take off the two 0.5 inch machine guns on B turret,add neutral stripes and the High angle control system without any radar on the fighting top.I also have HMS Valiant as 1945 Pacific colours and HMS Queen Elizabeth as 1918 waiting next on the slip way after Barham.
  8. My first build after long hiatus (explained more in my Heller 109K thread) the Hawker Hunter MkI. Completed this a couple months ago, just getting around to posting it. Actually used the Eastern Star reissue, but it's the original 1959 Frog tool. Built box stock with the exception of blanking off the intakes and I decided to give scribing recessed panel lines a go. Painted with Tamiya acrylics. Oh...I also used a piece of the sprue to carve the little bullet fairing at the back of the horizontal stabs. Yes...that's a pilot's head molded into the solidly blanked off cockpit...and the wheel well outlines are simply scribed into the bottom...it was 1959, after all. Still, builds a nice looking model of a beautiful jet IMHO.
  9. RAF Squadron badges

    I know this is not a modelling related question, for which I apologise, but I am sure this is the best place to find an answer to my question. I am currently writing a book on Hawker Hunter operations in Aden in the 1960s and am seeking a set of badges for the squadrons that served in that theatre. Can anyone point me in the direction of a website dedicated to RAF squadron and airfield badges please? Thank you for any help you can give.

  14. Brandon Hennessy 04/09/2016. Hey guys. Started a 1/32 hunter the other month and having a steady pace with it so thought i would throw it up and see how it goes ! enjoy i've sprayed the camo and the wing tips along with the black nose cone. the canopy also received a good dipping with some AK Gauzy which I'm loving at the moment Thanks for looking Brandon
  15. I had this old airfix kit of the hunter hanging around and decied that as the decals were out of register I would cobble togeather the markings for the Raspberry ripple aircraft XE601. This is not a faithfull reproduction of the aircraft there large gun casing mouldings are still there and I have not modified the kit in any way except to put in a white metal mk4 martin baker seat that I found in the kit. this is the first time I have used acrylics and enamals on the same kit and it seems to have worked ok. Normal 5ft viewing distance please Many thanks for looking Rodders
  16. Built for the Hunter Group Build, you can see more here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235002161-hunter-fr10-academy-148-plus-pj-conversion/ http://Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr
  17. Dear Colleagues Back to something quintessentially British - the Hunter F6. This is where Hawker got the whole aircraft to really work and fight like it was supposed to (without the engine stalling when the guns were fired!). The 1/72 Revell kit is getting hard to find but it does justice to the original. I used a resin seat and Eduard PE. I indulged in the expensive Houchin starter from Flightpath to go alongside. The pilot is from PJ and the figures from Gunthwaite The markings are 208 squadron from Xtradecal Hope you like it? Andrew
  18. Something I've been working on when I get chance, seeing as the 32nd Sabre is still missing parts from Kinetic, the Alcock & Brown phantom has stalled due to the decals self destructing, I've had this on the go to keep me ticking over. Going to be OOB apart from a master model pitot. Comparison between a 32nd and a 48th scale Hunter - A mod I've put on, first photo shows what it comes as with the kit. Hand painted the IP, No decals used here Rest of the cockpit finished. Some detail was added to the flight stick as it was a bit bland and shapeless before. Started on a weathered base for the underside LAG Then made a start on the top surface Grey. I've got some references that show some really beat up Hunters, so that's what I'm working towards. Trying to throw half an hour or so at a time for now, so it's a slow burner. Should be a good first 32nd though!
  19. Good afternoon, as mentionned in the chat, wife and kid are outside, so I will try to do a quick build on the Revell Hunter. The start, at 7:30LT After one hour, the seat, tanks and wings were glued, some recesses filled. The first colour, black for the cockpit area. Pic is overexposed to show the details. After 3.5 hours, workbench looks like this. Wings needed much time and filler, but it may have been my mistake. First round of silver (tamiya flat alu) Dashboard ready for installation. Just some tire black for the main part, some drybrushing and gloss black for the dials. Cockpit ready for the fuselage. Fuselage halves glued together. Nose, gun bay and exhaust were added later. The intakes are a bit tricky, as it's best to paint them beforehand. So, again, a short burst of alu, one side green, the other grey. Such parts need time, so I will let dry the glue overnight. Time so far: 10 hrs total, including some breaks, lunch and taking care of the flat. Some 8 hours net building time. Next step is putting the parts together, preshading, colours and then off we go. Hope I'm finished by this weekend! Alex
  20. Good morning, as some of you may know, I finished the Hunter in a rather quick period of time. Actually, it was my fastest build ever! A few details about the model: it's the well-praised Hunter F.6 from Revell, which unfortunately is a bit hard to find nowaday. It was built strictly OOB, I only added two rods connecting the nose wheel leg to the gear door, and added some transparent nav lights, no resin, no PE. Painting was done with Gunze acryls and Tamiya flat alu, oil wash after some gloss cote, semigloss at the very end. Decals had to be altered a bit, as the front part of the pizza slice is straight, not curved (see WIP in the Hunter GB) Still, the confidentional "internal error list" is rather long, but I guess I will have forgotten the most items after a few days. Thanks for watching! Alex
  21. Hi folks Does anyone know if there are any Hawker Hunter T/7/8 or the like on the horizon? This is one of the dual seaters I sooo would like, that I would actually bother with a vacuum formed canopy if only there was a conversion set available? Best would offcourse be a new injection moulded kit though
  22. Well, Dan Jones, who lives a stones throw away from me has come up with the idea of a buddy build... We share this kit in common, although I'm not sure if Dan has all the extra greeblies that I do... We shall post regular updates on progress, as I am certain that Dan will start his own thread once we take steel to styrene tomorrow. Without further ado... The aforementioned victim.... Box art Extra greeblies Sprues & Destruction sheet Let battle commence.....
  23. I'm planning to do a 1/48 Hunter T7 in the future using the Heritage conversion kit. Seeing what is available on evil bay, what is considered the best kit to use. Academy FGA9 Academy F6 Italeri F6/FGA9 Lindberg F? Nichimo F6 Thanks for any input. Rob.
  24. Hi all, I thought it was about time I did a WIP after lurking and posting for so long. Last year I built the Matchbox Sea Venom and enjoyed working in 1/32 so added a couple more big scale kits to my stash with the idea of doing one or two of them a year. This years kit will be this one: I've started, as is customary, in the cockpit and have added a few bits and bobs to busy up the kit parts, which are very good all things considered. My guide in this is the Modellers Data File on the Hunter and I'm just trying to achieve the impression of busyness rather than 100% accuracy: I think that will be enough extra's as most will be barely visible once the cockpit is closed up, next step is to paint it all black which will help to make all the additions disappear. The kit seat isn't too bad but it will need detail adding and the moulded on belts removing and replacing. So I'm considering an aftermarket item but will make my mind up later in the build as the seat can still be fitted after the fuselage is closed up. More as I make progress Regards Tom
  25. Hawker Hunter Aerobatic Team decals 1/72

    Hi Everyone, I am working on a project to build five 1/72 single seat Hunters in aerobatic team colours. Whilst I've completed the Belgian 'Diables Rouges' aircraft using Daco decals 72-45, and have decals in the stash for a 'Black Arrows' F.6 and a blue/yellow/silver 'Patroille Swisse' F.58, I would also like to complete an F.6 in 'Blue Diamonds' liverie, and an F.56 in the Indian 'Thunderbolts' liverie. I haven't been able to locate decal sheets that would cover these, so if anyone could help with naming any sheet that includes either or both, and even a stockist, I would greatly appreciate it. Cheers Tony
