...has a nice ring to it! The result of a collaboration between Douglas and Hawker in the mid 1950's

Airfix Hunter fuselage and decals and Tamiya Skyray wings and tail and lots of filler.


I thought I'd put it here as well as the child board-otherwise what is the point of the main section?!


Looks au natural, well played Van !!!

Nice kit bash.  Although, with that wing, you have to take a second look to see the Hunter in there.  Well done.

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.

Nice blending of the Skyray and Hunter parts.  Looks quite authentic and I hope it causes some fits amongst the purists when it is encountered on the display table at your next show.

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.


thanks for all your kind words-I'll definitely take it to a show where the sig have a table..




Very nice, just looks right somehow.


Brilliant concept and execution! :thumbsup:


All hail the God of Frustration!!!


That is truly jaw-dropping - at least, down here it is ;). Nice work! As soon as I saw the canopy and the nose decal I just knew the Airfix Hunter had to be involved.

A brilliant concept well-executed, and the camo is quite nice too. As a delta fan I give this two thumbs up!
