Not only is it well done, it's plausible enough that it reaches inside ya' and makes ya' wish that had actually happened.
Great Job!

USMC Hawker Hunter Finished!!!!

Well it only took 535 days from the start to finish (1 year, 5 months and 17 days or 12,840 hours). This was another enjoyable build. I will put together a list later of all the things I did to her. Enough talking, What-if 2nd Lieutenant Frank E. Peterson Jr flew with VMFT-20 during the Korean War and What-if VMFT-20 flew Hawker Hunters... Ta-Da!!!

I really don't understand what this model is doing in this Forum.  :unsure:

This, after all, is a place where we present models of things that don't really exist and Peterson's Hunter surely MUST have existed.............  ;D

OUTSTANDING WORK!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

You have not disappointed us. This is even better than what I expected... You set a new standard for excellence, and if this doesn't win a Whiffie this year, I'm leaving this forum!!!

Well, that blows the last chance the Boulton-Paul/Westland Defender ever had of even placing! ;)
