  1. This maybe of interest... https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/FHP48119?result-token=nq0QY

    Hunter GA 11

    Hi Pat, can’t see the photo...Lots of variables concerning Dark Sea Grey. One, like you’ve pointed out, is how it’s affected by light. Weathering, wear and tear...Another one is the film/developing/photoshop stage. Another factor could be where the aircraft were sprayed after deep maintenance - Sea Harrier, and for that matter the Harrier in general went to St Athan for deep maintenance and finishing. The initial FRADU Hunters post ‘82 were sent to Hurn - Lovaux for refurbishment... All I know is that GA.11s were painted the same as the Sea Harrier fleet post Falklands in overall Dark Sea Grey. A good comparison would be to find a photo showing a Hunter T.8M in the EDSG and White scheme alongside a Hunter in the later DG...

  4. If I remember it’s Chris Roy - ex 801...
  5. Thank you for taking the time to send this. That’s sorted the initials for the pilot seen on XT859 during this period. Regards Andrew
  6. Thank you, found a photo of XT859 last evening showing the pilots name as Flt Lt Lotinga...along with the FO Lister Tomlinson as the Observer - the jet wore the later nose marking (892 badge instead of the Jubilee 77 markings). Great to have the LAMs name. Could I be cheeky and ask you if you have any more photos of XT859 - same period. regards Andrew
  7. Can anyone help regarding the pilot and observer crew names carried on the above 892 NAS Phantom FG.1 circa 1977/78?
  8. You’re probably right, here’s a couple of photos showing 31 squadron helmet markings...
  9. Look like 31 Squadron checks on the helmets...
  10. Jumping from one kit to another at the moment but here’s my latest, 1/48 Kinetic Harrier GR.3. The kit is going together pretty well although some of the surface detail requires some attention.
  11. Be careful, the kit contains both FRS.1 and the later FA.2 wings and their associated wing fences - see above photo of PE set. If I remember, the FRS.1 instructions incorrectly show the fitting of the FA.2 wing...They also show the fitting of AIM-120 missiles - the FRS.1 couldn’t carry these.
  12. The earlier editions also had incorrectly positioned upper auxiliary doors...
  13. The radio call sign for the CRC at Scampton has recently changed from Black Dog to Crow Bar...
  14. Lovely build of a version not often seen built up. Much prefer it to the ‘IIIE in terms of looks. Not an issue for It’s envisaged operator, the IDF, just how effective it would have been in typical European weather conditions...
