I think the Hawker Hunter is one of the most esthetically pleasing aircraft ever to fly. I've made Revell's 1/32, 1/72, and, now 1/144 Hunters. I have to say I like this 1/144 kit the best. If I can find a 1/144 Hunter decal sheet, I'd make a b[...]
1/72 Revell, I modified a few things, wing leading edge and panel lines, rear fuselage, copper wire ejector handles, canopy open, added intake covers, finished in Revell and MM enamels with Future and Xtra flat over Flying Colors Aerodecals.
1/72 Revell, almost OOB, I replaced ejection handles with copper wire, removed molded instrument detail, added intake covers and have canopy open as it doesn't fit properly closed, finished in Humbrol and MM enamels with Future and Xtra flat ove[...]
Built for 'Micro Modelling Month' over at www.modelersalliance.com - an annual GB/Campaign to build any model in one of the smaller scales.
As I have four of these kits on the shelf, I thought it was time to build another Hawker Hunter, but thi[...]

All I have to do now is find somewhere to keep it! (Why do I keep buying 1:32nd scale models?).
Like George (below), I haven't been posting of late, either. Not because I couldn't, but because I didn't have anything TO post. :(
Recently, I got a hold of a kit I've never built (in any scale). The Hawker Hunter.
This 32nd offering was a pr[...]

I am a big fan of Sir Sydney Camm’s Hawker fighter designs, from Kingston on Thames, especially the Typhoon, Tempest and Hunter. The Hunter has always been one of my most favorite aircraft, for many, many years. Aircraft shapes don’t come much p[...]
This Hawker Hunter Mk 12, XE531 was used by the Royal Aircraft Establishment (RAE) for equipment development trials (fly by wire) 1980-81.
The idea came from the old soft cover edition of "Flying Colors", a state of the art reference at th[...]
