Today I have for you all a finished Hawker Demon - The Airfix Vintage Classics kit. Some of the struts are slightly short, especially those for the tail, and one cabane strut broke but was more or less repaired. Wheels were sourced from a Heller NiD 622 so that I had a hope of actually painting the tires.

I got a good many of these Demon kits years ago secondhand from a gentleman in Australia, shortly after t
Hawker Demon 64 Squadron colours Shuttleworth Collection, Old Warden, 2014 This is a fairly rare thing for me - I'm usually a Lightning / Phantom / Buccaneer / Harrier / Hunter sort of modeller. A recent visit to Old Warden inspired me to do this one. I had had the old (ancient) Airfix Hawker Demon kit for years and years and never got around to it till now. I was also looking at doing a 229 OCU / 64 Sqn Phantom so this would seem to be a good companion for it. I'm no expert on pre-war stuff so I'm not sure about the accuracy of this, but I couldn't resist all that rigging and wiring! Go
