Airfix 1/48 Hawker Hunter F.6A


Recommended Posts

Finished this one over the weekend, I must say I am pleased this one is off the workbench as I didn’t particularly enjoy this build, it wasn’t the subject, so I’ll put it down to the kit. It’s not that the Airfix kit is a bad kit to build, because it isn’t, it just a bit blah!

WIP is here

For this build I used Eduards cockpit pe set & mask, CMK wheels and flaps, Quickboost seat, Master pitot probe, Flightpaths Matra rocket pods and Aerocraft’s drop tanks and pylons. Ladder is from Brengun.

Decals came from Airfix, Xtradecal and roundels were from Flightpath.

Paints were mainly GSI Aqueous.

Very very nice. I would say perfect weathering and I like the cockpit with all these details, especially the blue seatbelts!

 

Wonderful…

A stunning build and finish. The colours and weathered finish look absolutely spot on. You must be very happy to have this masterpiece in your collection.

Brilliant. I love what you did with the paint finish to get the level of fade and wear, and the cockpit detail is very well done.

Cheers
