  1. My recently completed Hunter T7, made from the old Matchbox kit and some codged together decals to represent XL613 of 237OCU in 1988
  2. Source: https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/new-for-2018/hawker-hunter-f6-1-48.html Airfix is to release in October 2018 (?) a new tool 1/48th Hawker Hunter F.6/F.6A kit - ref. A09185 Schemes: 1) XF418 - 4 FTS Brawdy 2) XF509 - 4 FTS 3) Dutch AF V.P.
  3. Hi comrades! Two questions on the Hunter FGA.9 This small dent exists on both sides of the tank? Or only on the outboard of the tanks? And what was the main intakes color in middle sixties on the silver bottomed Hunters? Thanks in advance!
  4. Hawker Hunter Mk.4 & 5 Spine Corretions 1:48 AeroCraft Models There was little doubt that once the new Airfix Hunter was released that there would be plenty of options being produced for it. The spine and intakes/vents for the engine are specific to the Mk 6/9 so if accuracy is your passion Ali has created new parts which are a one piece replacement part to correct the fuselage of the Airfix kit. Hunter Mark 4 Spine This allows the Airfix Mk .4 Hunter spine to be built. Hunter Mark 5
  5. Hawker Hunter Mk.9 Conversion (for Airfix) & 230 Gal Tanks 1:48 AeroCraft Models There was little doubt that once the new Airfix Hunter was released that there would be plenty of options being produced for it. As they are some parts for the Mark 9 in the kit, Ali has now produced the rest of the parts needed and the larger drop tanks. As always they parts look good and will need only minimal clean up. Hunter Mark 9 Conversion Set This allows the Airfix Mk .6 Hunter to be converted to a Mark 9. There are new ailerons (these are mo
  6. After the Hunter F.6/F.6A (link), Airfix is to release in November 2019 a 1/48th Hawker Hunter F.Mk.4/ F.Mk.5 & J34 kit - ref. A09189 Souce: https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/new-for-2019/hawker-hunter-f4-1-48.html V.P.
  7. HAWKER HUNTER F.6, 66 Sqn. XF462 (CO), RAF Acklington, 1959 Kit: Revell Hawker Hunter F.Mk.6 (04350) Scale: 1/72 Paints: Vallejo Model Color, Model Air & Metal Color Weathering: Flory Models washes, Vallejo Weathering products Hawker Hunter which I did january this year. Very enjoyable kit by Revell, done straight out of the box.
  8. 1/48 Academy Hawker Hunter F.6, 14 SQN RAF Gütersloh, 1963 Hi folks, this was a kit I started nearly ten years ago when I was a teenager and was left half built. Completed as part of the KUTA GB. WIP here. Following advice I shortened the tail bullet and moved the tailplanes forward so they were correctly positioned (more or less). Apart from that it was completely OOB. This was also my first time using an airbrush and I am happy with the result! I used Tamiya flat Aluminium, Xtracrylix Dark Sea Grey and Modelmaster Acryl Dark Green. Definitely a smoother finish than when I use a b
  9. Hawker Hunter T.7 Conversion (for Airfix) 1:48 AeroCraft Models There was little doubt that once the new Airfix Hunter was released that someone would do a conversion for the T.7 Family model. First of the mark was Ali from Aerocraft in time for 2019 Telford. They were used for training by the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force as well as overseas (With different designations). In the box are 27 resin parts including a full cockpit and ejection seats. A beautifully cast resin canopy (in two parts), additional clear parts; a small PE fret, a length of pla
  10. Hawker Hunter wheel set for Revell kit (72054) 1:72 SBS Model The Revell Hunter is great kit, but like a lot of kits the wheels are a not as good as resin replacements can be, this is a drop in set once they have been removed from their blocks. Conclusion This is a good set and should pose no problems. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of Insert other media
  11. Being a relative virgin at airbrushing, I wouldn't choose this Masking Nightmare again! Just when ya think ya got one color just about right, you discover a tiny over-spray or leak in another! of shots as I walked out the door this a.m....
  12. When Hawker Aircraft was looking at a two seat Hunter the tandem configuration was considered but rejected in favour of the side-by-side arrangement. Freightdog Models released this conversion kit for the recently released Revell 1/72 Hunter. I have not done a WiP recently so here goes. First the resin pieces, As you can see the forward fuselage has been hollowed cast and the cockpit is well detailed and you get 2 vacform canopies. I made a quick start, joined the Revell fuselage together and then cut off the forw
  13. After a brief hiatus the Hunter is done, and I must say I was very impressed with the Italeri kit. For my standard of modelling I certainly don't need to spend Airfix prices. This was built OOB apart from aftermarket decals, plus I used a spare 1/48 seat from a Canberra kit as the Italeri one is 1/72. I also cut up and expanded the cockpit to accommodate this correct scale seat, and cut the rear fuselage to make it shorter. All detailed in my WIP: XG228 was delivered to the RAF in October 1956, and remained in service until 1984, serving with 1 TWU from the early 1970s. It was so
  14. Well there's no point hanging around, may as well start a new kit! I even bought aftermarket decals as I'd like to continue my 80s theme with a 79 sqn/1 TWU Hunter from around 1980-84. I also have the Academy one in the stash which I'll do as an old F6 using those lovely 56 sqn markings at some point, so this Italeri one will be an FGA9. It was much cheaper than the Airfix one, and looks ok on opening the box, apart from the 1/72 ejector seat. I'm going to use a spare one from the Canberra PR9; I know it's probably different but at leas
  15. On the morning of 04 Dec 71, No 37 sqn ‘the Black Panthers’ lovingly called the “Black Panties” by other IAF squadrons, launched their very first mission of the war, with four Hunters. This was the first Sqn to get the locally crafted camera nose on a Hunter 56A with cameras from the Vampire and had already flown several recce missions into East Pakistan since July '71. The Hunters were configured with four 100 Gal long range tanks and only gun ammo. The mission was led by the CO, Wg Cdr SP ‘Supi’ Kaul (later Chief of the Air staff) with Flt Lt SK ‘Billu’ Sangar as no 2 and Sqn Ldr AM Masca
  16. Here is the first of three Revell 1:144 Hawker Hunters I built back in 2007 using decals from the Xtradecal sheet. It is Hunter FR.71A 734 (ex-RAF XF317), of Grupo 8, Fuerza Aérea de Chile, Antofagasta, Chile, in early 1990s. Apart from flattening the nose tip for the camera port and adding the aerials specific for Chilean Hunters, the rest was built OOB. The kit was painted by brush and varnished with airbrush. Thank you for looking and all comments are welcome Miguel
  17. I will start at the beginning,bought this model at a model show with parts missing,for only £10.The trader had tried everything.I tried one of my sellers on eBay,bingo, he was able to get the part.That was 2yrs ago.Bought extra aircraft cheap,yes like cheap.One of the boxes were SB2U scout bomber,the first monoplane aircraft to serve on Saratoga. The research started,first the etching from Eduard ,the bridge is upgraded to 1940,which mean I could put more modern aircraft on board. Sb2U-1 Vindicator x12 TBD-1 Devastators x20 F2A-2 Buffalos x12 F3F-1 x12 the bip
  18. Hello again. So.. This Hunter thing. It's Revell. It's a nice kit and looks quite good, but maybe we shouldn't look at the shape too closely just in case. I'm glad it's better than the Matchbox and Frog Hunters I did when 'I was a wee lad' which was the last time I built one of these. I expect I didn't get some of the lumps and bumps quite right for this mostly OOB representation of a No.8 sqn RAF Hunter based in Khormaksar, Aden 1963. The instructions show optional parts so it's up to us to do the extra research to see which fits what. I didn't go the extra mile becaus
  19. Hi all Hot off the modelling table is my Airfix 48th Hunter F.6. Straight out of the box with decals from Xtradecal. Built as Hunter F.6 XG225 from 92 Squadrons display team The Blue Diamond's Having built the Academy Hunter in the standard camo scheme just had to do something a bit brighter with this one.

  20. Hello all, I just noticed, that I have no instructions of my 1/32 Hawker Hunter from Revell (04703), first edition. Unfortunately, Revell offers only the instructions of the re-edition as download. The first edition from 1998 has more decal options and the numbering of the stencils is completely different. Maybe some of you could provide a scan, or could mail me the instructions. This is the box art of which I need the instructions: Thanks, Thomas
  21. XE599 was delivered to the RAF on 1st May 1956, serving with numbers 8 and 208 squadrons as well as 74 squadron, before being converted to an FR.74 (serial no. 535) for the Singapore AF. Her nose is now preserved in Australia in those markings. This model reflects her in the halcyon days of the RAF, high speed silver flashing over the East Anglian countryside, a glimpse of the famous tiger stripes that 'fear no man'. The Tigers received Hunters in March 1957, with the F.4 version replacing Meteor F.8s until the F.6s arrived in November of that year. They flew from RAF
  22. Hi all, I originally started this during the 2016 Hunter group build but bit off far more than I could chew and its sat on the shelf of doom for a couple of years - until about a month ago that is. I decided to crack on and get it finished only to come up with serous decal issues. The kit decals had perished, I originally bought this cheap about 10 years ago and the box had suffered some water damage, this had obviously affected the decals. I'd planned on doing this in 79 Squadron markings from Chivenor in the late 60's so already had the xtradecal sheet wit
  23. Morning folk's sorry to bang on about my current oldies infatuation but back to frog for a second entry,I think I might have built a Matchbox Hunter ages ago can't remember building Airfix's offering or Frog's.Not seen this kit in the flesh but it must be the same as the Novo kit being built by Pat.
  24. Hot on the heals of the Canberra, another beauty from the 50s, the elegant Hawker Hunter. This is my first 'Mistercraft' kit, and looks on first glance to be quite simple; very few parts and to my less than professional eyes, a reasonable shape. Not bad for about £6 on eBay anyway! The kit decals, however, were awful! Very blotchy looking 92 sqn checks, and some 1 sqn nose flashes that seem a bit too small in my opinion. As I'll be making my Sabre in 92 sqn colours, I wanted to do something different for the Hunter, so I splashed out on the Xtradecals set. A good choic
