Given the pelters thrown at nearly if not all Hornet kits so far for their nose-front canopy windscreen profile let’s hope they get it right. Well at least as right as keeps everyone happy :D

It looks right in the CAD.

 

The Dynavector 1/48 DH Hornet vacform kit was also correct in this area and so was the Classic Airframes Hornet kit.

I have great confidence in these guys. I was lucky enough to join in a conversation with them on Arthur Bentley's stand at the Nats last year. They have a real commitment to accuracy and an obvious  love of the Hornet. With Arthur Bentley's help they have access to the best information that is out there. Capturing the subtlety of line of a very beautiful machine will not be easy and will require real care. I am convinced these guys get it and cant wait to see what they come up with. 

Good luck.
