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) for some welcome input with this build 

Thank you for looking and enjoy

Excellent build and finish, the paint work looks simply beautiful. 

What do you think of the Airfix kit? Is it worth to replace my aged

Academy kits? I have a soft spot for the Hunter, an epic aircraft.

The Airfix kit is a great kit better than the Academy kit although not without its own issues the fit of the lower wing parts was a tight fit and my kit the sprue that the wings Are on was badly warped especially the upper wing that was bowed upwards but when glued together with the lower wings all came together nicely  other than that a great kit to work on

Drop dead gorgeous!The Jordanians had the most colourful (Mid-east region) Hawkers Hunters back then in the 1960s and while the Iraqis examples were similarly painted but they of course didn't have the attractive wolf's head squadron creast/badge. Congratulations for creating such a beautiful Hunter,it's really an eye-catcher.
