Having a go at the Revell 1/72 Hunter F.6. Box long gone as I hate Revell's letter box style and transfer them into shoe boxes ( fortunately Mrs Kit has a shoe and boot stash to rival my kit stash :ha: )

Anyway obligatory shots. As stated on the GB thread a bit of paint was applied while still on the sprues but this will be painted over again

Planning on using one of the options from Modeldecal sheet 86

Black and light grey dry brush on cockpit. Also liquid steel in nose for ballast. Painting started on a Quickboost seat too, kit seat is very good but this has the edge

Image

Cockpit it place

Image

Parts for rear fuselage with a coat of Vallejo Dark Aluminium. Very visible ejector mark but will be hidden when assembled

Image

Now wondering what to do about intakes as they are open to the complete inner wing. Leave as is or try some trunking?

Image

fuselage is together now just waiting for seams to dry before sanding

I really ought to source one of these.... or wait for the pre-release this year; your build is really whetting my appetite for one!

A certain Mr Bradley improved his intakes by lining them with putty when he converted his to a 2 seater. You could always just make intake covers.

Fuselage done. Airbrake (closed) and Sabrinas still to add

Image

Thanks for the ideas shangos70. Decided to try this method. First trimmed a piece of paper to fit

Image

Ended up this shape so now I have a blank

Image

Opened up a beer can (after first draining it in a pleasurable fashion), copied the blank onto it and cut out (remembering to reverse for the opposite wing )

Image

Bent to shape and Cyano'd into position

Image

Bit of trimming after and trunking done. Lot easier than I thought.

The 1/144 scale kit oddly has some rudimentary trunking. The metal works well and avoids the issue of splitting that can occur with thin plastic card.

Very nice trunking! Mine was not as sophisticated, but I made extras for my other Revell Hunters!

Cheers,

David

Nicely done David, very effective.

Started on the wings now. Leading edge extensions and wingtips added.

Image

Doesn't look so good on the underside though, parts are way too thick, but not unexpected as it is well documented as an issue with this kit.

Image

A session of sanding and rescribing next :roll:

Checking the Sabrinas (oh I wish :ha: ) the two pair of little nubbinz have got to go. They are meant to represent the empty shell case chutes but should be tubes mounted above the Sabrinas.
