Airfix Hawker Hunter

Recommended Posts

Just got the new Airfix 1/48 Hawker Hunter and have a query regarding part C37 in the cockpit. This looks as though it's the parachute brake release handle which the standard F.6 would not have been fitted with. Is this correct?

 

TIA

I haven't got my instructions to hand at the moment but if the part you're referring to looks like a shovel handle (sorry, that's the best way I can think of to describe it!) then it's the emergency hood release handle. You'll need it for anything other than a very early Hunter F.1 and it should have the handle end painted in diagonal black/yellow stripes.

Thanks for the info, that is the handle in question. If it was for the brake chute it wouldn’t have been a problem as I intend to do a F.6A using the parts supplied in the kit.
