...It's very satisfying when you've had an idea in your head for a while...and you build it and it ends up looking EXACTLY as you imagined it originally.  ;D...

I wouldn't know.   :-\
They never turn out as I picture them, sometimes (rarely) they are betterer.

- 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.

Thats come out really well :thumbsup:
The canopy reminds me of a Meteor NF.14. which i suppose might be
a way of doing a two seater Hunter....? you'd just need to extend the
fuselage a bit.

Second that. Very subtle, I like it much - and the shark mouth is just the distracting cream puff!  :thumbsup:

I took a look at the Meteor NF14 canopy and it's pretty darn close. It doesn't taper toward the rear like the T12 canopy does and it also has a bow frame in the centre but I can't see that being a problem.

I have a normal length Maintrack tandem nose still 'in stock', which is where the T12 grew of course, and I'll see if the NF14 canopy fits.
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! :)

Regards
Kit

Top notch, Kit, well done. :thumbsup:

Many years ago before I discovered hardcore whiffery (and before I knew the tandem T7 was actually a real Hawker project, I built a tandom Hunter using a Matchbox kit with a Meteor NF14 canopy. Was a close enough match I recall.

 :thumbsup: The pointy nose suits the hunter really well! Great job! :cheers:
