1/32 Revell Hawker Hunter was created by Grant
So after a lull on the modelling front I'm finally working up some steam for another 1/32 aircraft build. But which one? I keep taking kits out of the cupboard then putting them back in. These are the kits that appeal most at the moment. Tell me which one O wise ones! :cheer:

That's not so much modelling as it is self-torture.

Hawker Hunter it is! And I've started. I'll post progress in this thread. I wonder if there is an aftermarket seat for this. :huh:

There used to be a Black Box/Avionix/True Details seat and cockpit set but these appear to be no longer available. The CAM MB.3H is still available though. store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/camr32036.htm

Thanks for that. I've decide to build this out of the box quickly and just have a bit of fun with it.

Nice kit so far. The surface detail is very fine. The seat (especially the belts) could be a lot better. I might clean up the cockpit a bit, but keen to get to the painting asap. It's nice to be building an aircraft again.

Those moulded on belts look flat as a pancake. Any plans to put a pin wash on the edges to make them pop a bit?

I actually have been working on this, but very slowly. It is now ready for some paint. The fit is reasonable, but there are various seems that need filling.

I've managed a few sessions on this over the break (including the occasional tasty beverage). I used Tamiya putty to fill the small gap around the forward canopy. It's now primed in black and ready for the main paint job. :)

Next I'll weather the bottom a little before moving to the top scheme.

The top grey with a little bit of shading. Paints are Tamiya acrylic as always. Next up, masking for the green.

A busy weekend. Masked and painted, and begun the weathering.

Beautiful!

I was thumbing through an amazing hardcover full colour book on the Hunter at a second hand bookshop over the weekend. I really wanted it, but because they wanted $300 for it, I had to leave it behind.

I always worry about the decals, but these are going down beautifully.

Great work Grant, one of my favourite Jets just behind the Phantom (RAF variant) and you're doing her proud.

Some decals on the bottom. These react very quickly with Micro Sol, and I ended up destroying one of the ejection seat warning signs. :pinch:

Cheers. From the pictures I see a few things that need fixing when I feel inclined.
