Hunter with Firestreaks P1109B - mounting details needed


Recommended Posts

Are there any details/drawings of the pylons which carried the Firestreaks or were they mounted on the standard pylons?

They`ll need to to be a launcher too, the Firestreak missile was cooled by liquid Ammonia when attached to the Aircraft. 

The liquid ammonia was stores in a bottle with in the rear fairing of the launcher.

Great photos @sloegin57.

 

About those colours, what colour was the tail exhaust housing and the nose appears to be a different colour as well from the first picture and lastly the demarcation on said nose appears to be different from the bottom picture. Any info ?

 

Regards

Robert

Dennis, Grovelling apologies. I had failed to acknowlege this and say 'Thank you'. I didn't do so right away and somehow it slipped of the radar, possibly because work has come to a halt on the model (life got in the way)

Thank you

John
