  1. Good Day, Here are some of the projects we are currently working on, planned for release in 2020/21: * HD48024 & HD72054 : F-4C/D/E/G/ETM & RF-4C/E/ETM Phantom II Walkways - Walkways and formation stripes for USAF and exported planes * HD48026 & HD72056 : F-5A/RF-5A Freedom Fighter - F-5A Iranian AF (IIAF) NMF - F-5A Iranian AF (IIAF) Asia Minor camo - RF-5A Iranian AF (IRIAF) Asia Minor camo - RF-5A Iranian AF (IRIAF) white scheme - F-5A South Vietnamese AF (ex IIAF) - F-5A Vietnamese AF ( ex IIAF, ex SVAF)
  2. Hi, I am currently nearing completion of an Airfix Hunter F.5 and am using Fantasy Printshop decals, as I am finishing it in 41 Squadron markings. My dilemma is in relation to the underwing serial numbers and how they were laid out on the early marks? There appears to be two ways; linear i.e. WN966 or in the later block form. There are few references to examine and none of of WN966. Has anyone got any words of wisdom that may help? Many thanks Andy
  3. Hi guys, I wonder if anyone has any information of photos on this particular airframe. I've got many off the internet of the jazzy splinter scheme currently applied but I have n't found any of the cockpit or seat. Can anyone post photos or links to these areas please? Also, has anyone ever created decals or masks for this airframe in her current splinter scheme in 1/32nd scale? Many thanks for any help you can offer. Cheers.
  4. I'm contemplating trying to convert a Matchbox Hawker Hunter to the P.1091 delta-winged proposal. Are there any published dimensions? Also, would I be better advised using a different Hunter kit? The Matchbox Hunter looks a bit "undernourished" to me, but what do I know? I don't want to waste a Revell Hunter on such a conversion, and I got the Matchbox kit for a song.
  5. Hawker Hunter Mk.6 Update set for Airfix Kit. 1:48 AeroCraft Models There was little doubt that once the new Airfix Hunter was released that there would be plenty of additional parts being produced for it. Aercraft have now produced this set for the Mk.6 kit, as always they parts look good and will need only minimal clean up. Hunter Mark 6 Update Set There are new ailerons (these are more accurate than the kit parts with the centre hinge in the correct position)., flaps and an airbrake. The wing needs to have a few small changes made
  6. Hi all here is my Airfix 1:48 Hawker Hunter F.6 I finished it in the markings of a Royal Jordanian Air Force F.6 1966 Extra details added Brengun PE ladder (BRL48018) Quickboost Ejection Seat (QB48550) Cutting Edge Hunters part 1 (48043) Scratch built chocks from sprue and wire Scratch built FOD Guards Pitot RBF Tag Plus base Tamiya paints used throughout apart from the red which was from Revell (cheers Steve ) The camo was Airbrushed by hand Ive thoroughly Enjoyed this build from start to finish Thank you to Steve (speedy
  7. Hi all Apologies if this question has been asked before, but I'm currently building the Revell 1/72 Hunter FGA.9 (it's going together beautifully and I'm delighted with it so far) and want to know what colour(s) to paint the air intakes? There's nothing indicated on the instructions and I've looked at dozens of images online but can't see anything conclusive. Can anyone help please? Many thanks Tim
  8. Having built the Academy Hunter last year, I've been looking forward to getting the Airfix new release so pre-ordered a couple of kits which arrived in January. I'd also picked up the Xtradecal sheet Pt 3 which has some excellent coulourful schemes on, so decided I had to do one of these, in particular the Tactical Weapons Unit based at RAF Brawdy in 1979. Now it turns out that Xtradecal have the serial number on this one wrong. They claim it is XG223 but in fact it is XG225 - there are several photos of it out there in the net in this scheme to prove it. By the way this airframe now resides a
  9. Hi All, my second WIP here. Taking a break from my ICM Beer Delivery Spit as it is too cold outside to prime it. I picked this 1982 kit up a few months ago for the princely sum of £3.60 on eBay and it is also my first jet. I have only done WWII so far but also have an interest in Cold War jets. I'm not expecting any magic from this old tool but I'm sure with a bit of love something respectable can be produced. And if not for a few quid I'm sure it will be happy in the bin. Usual bits first; box, parts (detached on arrival as it is pre-owned but not started), decals and
  10. Do I recall correctly or did I dream it, but has somebody done some intake internals in resin for the Revell 1/72nd Hawker Hunter? Last Hunter I made some out of plastic card but I wasn't totally happy with the result. Any help gratefully received.
  11. Yes, this is going to be just like the old days, back from the shops and built over the weekend Terrified of desolving Decals but really looking forward to this cheers Pat
  12. Looks like re-release of Revell's Hawker Hunter brings more decals to market, tis time from company HI-Decal line. From Hannats: And same in 1/48 scale - HD48029 Just in case if Xtradecals have not enough foreign schemes. ---------------------------------- update:
  13. My dad bought me this for christmas. It has taken me 8 months to finish! A lot of that time was spent building other models while looking over at the hunter, pulling a face and mumbling many words of profanity. But i managed to get through it. Lost many small bits on the way, like a couple of nav lights, but learnt a lot as well. Like painting camoflage and filling really badly. As you can see from the grainy iPhone pictures it isn’t perfect but for me, its done. The only thing though is that it still looks like plastic and doesn’t really have any weight to it. I may go over with some matt var
  14. How dull it is to pause, to make an end, To rust unburnish'd, not to shine in use! -- Alfred, Lord Tennyson, "Ulysses" 'They might say, it seems to me, "you are rich; we are poor...You have had the past; let us have the future." Above all, I fear they would say, "you are weak and we are strong."' -- Winston Churchill, 16 November 1934 Mr Edward Heath (MP for Bexley): Can the Secretary of State be certain when confrontation over Indonesia will end or when the certainty of the independence of Malaysia can be assured? Mr Dennis Healey (MP for Leeds East): No, I cannot be certain
  15. Hello all. Just like several others in this STGB I'll be building the Revell 1/72 Hunter FGA.9. The plan is to build two planes, one in the 1960s colours of the Royal Rhodesian Air Force (Green/Grey over HSS) and one in the early 1980s Zimbabwe AF colours. If things go really well, I might dig up my third copy of my kit from my secondary stash at my parents' home and build a 1970s bird as well (RhAF, Green/Earth over Earth). There have been a couple of sprue shots, but I don't think anyone has shown them unwrapped yet, so here you go. Those with an encyclopaedic knowledge of third-party decal
  16. I'm in with this Academy F6 and Xtradecal 48-003 - I think it will be a 74 Sqn standard DG/DSG over Aluminium. Have ordered this Aires set - anyone know the correct colour name for the green or the Humbrol/Mr Color call out? I plan to put a driver onboard as always so its a bit wasted on me, be my first proper look at resin/PE....
  17. Hi everybody, I have finally managed to finish something. It is Hawker Hunter 842 from Oman, approximately from the early/mid 1980s. This Hunter is one of the former Jordanian a/c presented to Oman in 1975, serviced by Airwork Ltd., a British contractor, and flown by British and Omani pilots. You will certainly have seen the pictures of fairly low flying Omani Hunters and Jaguars. It must have been a interesting period for the people involved and at least for the foreign contractors, Oman seems to have been a dry country only in meteorological terms. Together with the Swiss and Singaporean H
  18. Academy Hawker Hunter F.6 in 1:48 I've used Aeroclub correction set and FM details resin, check more of the build on http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234979788-148-iraqi-hawker-hunter-f6-academy-aeroclub-fm/ The decal are Iraqi fighters by Linden Hill. It was quite a complicated build, many needed corrections; the dog tooth, the exhaust, rounding the tip edges, moving the tail planes and the airbrake, etc. I could do more on the nose and the canopy - I have trimmed the back frame, which makes a bit short, no rails done which makes it a bit off... anyway, here it is...
  19. Hello chaps It's been a long time since I did any WIP threads in any of the forums, but I guess this one fits alright @ the britmodeler. The subject is a Hawker Hunter in quarter scale. The only option we have is the well known (I guess) Academy kit with many flaws. Some bigger some not so. I hope I can correct the most obvious ones like the intakes. Although I hope I can count on your help since I do not know much about Hunters, except some basic stuff... Years ago I bought the Academy kit with some extras including the now OOP Aeroclub corrections set and I think even before I got the ki
  20. This is a “What-if” RAAF Hawker Hunter F6 in 25SQN markings. It is a follow on from the chapter in "The Alternative RAAF & RAN Fleet Air Arm - Australia's Little Asian Wars 1951–1975" by John Baxter detailing the invasion of Australian protectorates. In this chapter the scenario is - India has invaded the Cocos Islands and destroyed the Australian garrison including the flight of six CAC built Hunters F9s from 24SQN sent there to protect it from air attack. In my alternative addition to this scenario the RAAF immediately negotiated with the RAF to receive a squadron of Hunter F6s to be
  21. This set intended for 1/48 Academy Hunter. This set suitable for all F and FGA Hunter mods. There are flaps, airbrake, nose wheel hub details in the set. Model flaps are narrower, then should be. The etched flaps have precise dimentions and fix the original parts sizes error.
  22. Afternoon folks Ok so my current obsession with the Hunter continues and this time it is the Hunter F6 of Fighter School 1960. A gentleman on Facebook very kindly sent me some of the photo's he had taken of these machines in 1963 when he was on DFCS at Binbrook when the unit left West Raynham. It is my second 1:32 Hunter - the first being the FGA9 of the current Revell boxing and I did this in the RAF Brawdy scheme of red spine and fin so the two together look great - some photos of the two below. This one is OOB except the pilot who is a PJ Productions figure. Upper sides are M
  23. Hi everyone! Just had one of those rare (for me) modelling moments where everything goes to plan with no mistakes. I'm still learning the ropes when it comes to more advanced modelling such as making vacform kits. Anyway, I have just completed my first no mistakes complete removal of a vacform model from its backing sheet. Small and insignificant as modelling milestones go, but a happy little win for me all the same, so I hope you don't mind me sharing this with you fine people! Cheers, and happy modelling! Viv
  24. 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
