This is the ID vacuform kit. I have built nearly every scale kit of this aircraft starting with the Frog kit years ago. This kit however challenged me from the very start- and I have built a number of 1/32nd scale Vacs.
I used the following details to get this to the finish line:
True Details Hawker Hunter cockpit
Paul Fisher Sea Fury landing gear, Sea Fury drop tanks that were modified to create larger capacity
ones, and Meteor rocket set
prop blades that I carved and Darren Roberts of Steel Beach cast for me
aluminum tubing for the exhausts
vacuformed a new canopy after developing a new master
scratched up a new tailwheel and used a landing hook from a Sea Fury
Paints used were Model Master, Tamiya, Alclad
Decals are from Paul Fisher, and the spares box
This was finished as a Wyvern that was used in the Suez crisis
Thanks to Robert Irving for providing the kit , Paul Fisher for his input and products, and Darren Roberts for the prop blades
