  1. Finally calling this finished. Airfix's new Hunter, backdated to an early F6 without the wing dogtooth. XG292 'R' of 14 squadron, based at Ahlhorn, Germany, April 1958. Model is based on a lovely pic of 4 new F6s breaking to land in Lindsay & Kipp's RAF Hunters in Germany book. Extra detail added to the cockpit and the UC doors which are bizarrely blank, plus the ligh ton the back of the fin bullet has been added too, and the fuel jettison pipe at the lower rear. Other than that - this is a top notch kit that fits well and looks brilliant. Painted with Gunze & Tamiya acrylics in the the little known "bloody big fingerprint on the wing" scheme Final finish is Tamiya semi-gloss varnish to try and give a scale gloss sheen. The decals come mainly from the Freightdog F4 sheet - as this has the correct style squadron bars for the early style markings this F6 carried. Roundels and stencilling from the kit, serials from spares. I took the liberty of using the Freightdog german language ejection triangles and hood release too - these were used on F4s and I could see no reason why the F6 wouldn't have carried them too ( famous last words). All comments welcome as ever - and thanks for looking. Hope you like her. Jonners
  2. I'm building the Academy f6 Hunter and am doing the 56 Squadron 1960 option. I was going to have a small fuel tank on the inner pylon and what I thought were Matra type 155 rocket launcher pods on the outers, are these pods accurate? Would this load out be correct? I can find little reference to a twelve barrel pod at all. Thanks in advance. Dave
