USMC Hawker Hunter Finished!!!!
« on: July 18, 2010, 05:29:39 pm »
Ta-Da!!!


Well it's not finished but she's coming along nicely. The past two weeks I made some good headway, had to order a new seat(kit seat sucks) got some rockets for her, got her body together and got the wings together and folded.

More to come and thanks for looking,
Steven L  :thumbsup:

Darn you!!!!  You beat me too it!  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:  Its all good though, mine will be a two seater  :mellow:

She still looks good man.  What era/camo/squadron are you going to depict or do you know yet?  Whose kit are you using, it looks 1/48?

Mine, presently in the works is a trial version for the _real_ one, I will build in the future.  Its a 1/72 Airfix one.  I've also cut my wings along the ribs, rather than across them, a'la FJ-3 Fury's wing fold.  ;)

Holeeeeeeeee Shhhhh.....

When you first announced you'd do this profile, I wasn't too sure about how it'd look, with just one colour overall. Didn't know you were going to add folding wings, though. How awesome is that?  :bow:

This is gonna be another masterpiece!  :bow:
Cheers,

Bleh, Twiglets!  Make it pork pies & your in!!!  Otherwise I'll have to bring the evily strong tasting but suprisingly weak French dumpy bottle beer....
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

After the Mudhens, with all their pods and sensors, chaff dispensers and assorted gew gaws, it must be a relief to be building a relatively simple jet.  Looks good so far.

No, no, no, be inspired, not intimidated  :thumbsup:

OK, I can do Pork Pies, we have an outstanding bakery in the village which produces simply the best Pork Pies in the universe.... but ditch the bierre francais and bring me some of that Belgian rocket fuel, you know the 11% proof stuff.

Mmmmmm pork pies, beer and Hunter models....... :cheers:

Just to piggyback on what Ian posted, the main reason I post any of my work anywhere is to inspire others. My creativity feeds off of others and what others are doing and it gets me thinking. So I hope my work will inspire you to built something or at least, get you thinking.

Until later,
