After adding over 100 decals it’s finished. This is the Academy 1/48 kit. I’ve always wanted to build a Hunter as it is such a good looking aircraft. I altered the kit to be wheels up, added a new cockpit interior and pilot and a brass pilot tube. The decals are also AM, this one is XG228 of 1 Sqn RAF West Raynham 1969.

Good morning Mick,

That really has turned out brilliantly. A really great finish!!

I have a favour if you don't mind me asking? Would you PM me with the details of where you got your flight stand from? I'm looking to do some wheels up aircraft myself and that looks perfect for what I have in mind, reasonably substantial without being too obvious.

Again, well done.

Andrew

Hi Mick
Really well done - looks great. We don't see that many aeroplane models in flight but here it shows the sleek shape perfectly.

The Hunter is indeed, a good looking aircraft. Posing yours in flight just shows those lines even better. You've built a great Hunter Mick. A splendid build, top notch.
