As is the supersonic hunter (had a good look at the example Kit laid his hands on  ;D )

I was pretty pleased with that too, apart from the warped intakes, a dose of hot water should sort that out though. I was a trifle mystified by the two tailplanes which appeared to be the same as the kit items, but actually they aren't. You're meant to trim off the fin bullet at the rear of the basic F6 to make the proper Super Hunter prototype, and the resin tailplanes don't have the dents in the elevators to miss that bullet.

Mine's going to be summed with the Maintrack in-line 2 seater nose, and it'll retain the belly speed brake but add the big bore engine exhaust. The idea is it will be the Hunter T12, the TSR2 pilot/nav trainer, so if I can mould one it will have a TSR2 nose cone too.  -_-
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! :)

I have a nose cone, forward fuselage, canopies & cockpit bits you can have Kit, left over from this below (which I've yet to finish  ;D  )
