Designed as a supersonic Hunter follow-on fighter with a more highly swept wing and an afterburning Avon engine, the P1083 was never flown. It was cancelled due to defence cuts following the end of the Korean war and because the English Electric P1 (Lightning) showed much promise.

 

Basically it's the Airfix Hunter F6 fuselage with the Project-X vacform wings and tail fairing. Finished with home made decals.

With the P1067 Hunter prototype to show the different wing sweep.

Excellent work.  I have a real soft spot for might have been British aircraft.  

 

There's plenty to choose from, thanks to a load of bad decisions....
