I am busy building the following: a Revell 1/72 Hunter FGA.9 which will be done in the Royal Rhodesian Air Force scheme and markings as well as a NOVO 1/72 Javelin FAW.Mk.9.
These will be displayed in side by side flight over the Kariba dam wal[...]
This is another older build for my archive, the Revell 1/32 Hawker Hunter. Now I have at least one Hunter in 1/144, 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 scale. It’s a beautiful aircraft in any scale, that’s for sure!

There's lots of pix of what's in the box to be found on the net, so I'm not doing that here.
It's totally New Airfix. T[...]
Had a crack at the limited edition Academy 1/48th scale Hawker Hunter release over the weekend... didn't really like the schemes out of the box and have been wanting to do an Empire Test Pilot School (ETPS) 'Rasberry Ripple' scheme on a[...]
