  1. Evening all, I just picked up a 1:72 new-tool airfix harrier gr3, only problem is that i'm missing one half of the second gun-pack. I'm thinking of fitting the recce pod on the centre pylon anyway but the question is: I think that the gun packs were usually fitted (as i've seen in all photos of the gun-pack equipped harriers) in pairs but were there instances where only one was fitted? Many thanks, Sam
  2. Hello everybody, I am very delighted finally to be able to post something in RFI aircraft forum. This model is inspired by the wonderful website http://www.radfanhunters.co.uk, which is really one of my favourite aviation sites on the web. It is a fantastic documentation of the RAF's Middle East Air Force and especially RAF Khormaksar during the twilight of the British Empire in the 1960s. The model depicts Hunter FGA.9 XE649 in August 1965 operating from Khormaksar during the Aden Emergency and carrying the combined markings of No. 8 and 43 Sqn. Both squadrons had pooled their aircraft at this time. I based the model on an inflight-photo of XE649 that can be found in the gallery section of the above mentioned website (in the 43 sqn gallery). From this photo it is not possible to tell whether this aircraft had the golden/yellowish undercarrigae legs and bays, but this detail is clearly visible on other Hunters from this period and from the same squadrons. The kit, of course, is the one from Revell and it is airbrushed with Tamiya acrylics. The kit was built mostly out of the box. The only additions are the underwing rocket rails. I documented this little modification already in the Work-Progress-forum in last November (!). http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234968528-hawker-hunter-with-rocket-rails-172/ Well, I am not a fast builder... The tear-shaped ejector fairing on top of the outer wings were omitted. AFAIK, they only appeared when Matra rocket pods replaced the 3-inch rocket and their underwing rails. The Aden Emergency, however, was fought with the older WWII-style 3-inch rockets. I took most of the decals from the Xtradecal X72-123 sheet that actually covers a number of Hunter twinseaters but includes the 8/43 sqn-markings. The decals for the serial number were taken from some generic decal sheet with RAF-style letters and numbers. I tried to display the aircraft in a fairly weathered state because photos show that the RAF Hunters under the harsh sunlight and dusty conditions in the Middle East looked much more worn than their cousins serving in Europe. A high number of operational sorties against insurgents in the Aden protectorate certainly added to the worn look. First I applied a rather patchy paintjob by using lightened variants of the camouflage colours and later oil paints were applied for an additional faded look. I would like to get sharper photos, but this is all I could achieve with my present equipment and after a lot of experimenting. Thanks for looking and every comment is welcome. Ole
  3. more or less finished finally! some fast pics, more, in hopefully sunny Austrian Skys to follow soon build thread: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234943730-saab-105oe-sk60-trainer-172-decals/?hl=saab hope you like this small little bugger!
  4. Hi everyone Despite having the Modellers datafile, the excellent stuff from Nick Greenhall et all from the SIG site and other piccies from t'internet I can't seem to find any drawings (ideally to 1/48) of the 30mm Aden pods so I can more acurrately detial them on my Airfix SHAR. I have done the obvious (drilled out muzzle, rounded ends, sanded off blisters to replace, drilled cooling holes) but would like just a bit more detail. Thanks in advance
