Groovy. I think I still have the 1/32 scale Revell kit too, but will make sure. I've sold so many (gasp!!!) over the last year I think I've got stuff I haven't!! :lol: .

thanks,

David

Welcome aboard. Looks like this will be a great build. I have decided on a Matchbox Hunter. Not sure of the markings yet but probably a 79sqn RAF Brawdy. T7.

All the best,

Greg

Do you have the Aeroclub corrected nose, Greg? Highly recommended! I used mine to good effect.

Cheers,

David

Not got that but will look out for one. I found that with careful sanding the nose can be made to look better even if it's not perfect so if I can't get one I will still do the 2 seater.

All the best,

Greg

We have enough on board. And we have a date. I will see about getting this on the calendar.

All the best.

Greg

We are now official. As in on the calendar. I have to say I am so glad we are doing this one. Quite a few years ago I was at the BAPC ( British Aviation Preservation Council) 40th aniversary do at Rolls Royce, Derby. Sat at my table was Steve Hague (then president of the BAPC, now sadly deceased) Charlie Brown (ex RAF and now flies Spitfires etc for a living) others in the Aviation industry like John Farley (Harrier test pilot) amongst others. The conversation turned to "what is the best looking aircraft.?" I suggested the Hunter. The others were in unanimous agreement. So that's my only claim to fame folks. BUT do you good folks agree?
I do admit I would love to build my 1/32 Hunter for this one but I doubt I will get the bench time in six weeks to do it justice.
I have decided I will do the Matchbox Hunter as a two seater and use the kit nose, just re profiling it, the single seat nose I will do as a cockpit section, mounted on a trailer if I can find one that is suitable.

All the best.

Greg.

I just noticed that John Adams has been active this evening on Britmodeller. If you contact him he might have one of the noses. You can PM him thru Britmodeller, he usually responds to those but not emails. He goes by the name 'John Aero' on BM
