Oo, I've been pondering a lightning and/or hunter for a "never retired" build. Guess this is a good opportunity

Ambitions for this GB may well exceed my capabilities. I've got an idea for 4 models from 2 kits + a bunch of printed parts.

Kit wings on custom fuse and custom wings on kit wings for both a hunter and lightning...

It's good to have ambitions and if time runs out they can always be moved to the general section of the site  :thumbsup:

So, 2 donor kits identified and the ambition is currently:

Kit Hunter fuselage + custom wings - navalised hunter (along the lines of P.1117)
Custom fuselage + kit wings - huntsman

Kit lightning fuselage + custom wings - TSR2 wing planform testbed

Custom fuselage + kit wings - Flatening

Ooooh yes, I love ALL of those ideas!
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

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

More thoughts, no styrene cut yet

Can you fit a combined cycle propulsion system into a Lightning?



Yeah maybe

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Caught COVID just as the competition started. (Un)fortunately modelling mojo seems to be the only long lasting effect.

Plenty of time to go.  Two whole months left.
