Excellent job - looks really good now it's done, and that sharkmouth sets it off perfectly. :thumbsup: :bow:

Actually the T7 is a Whiff too, although I didn't intend it to be at the time. I couldn't get the serial no. decals correct and the ones I had to hand made up a number one more than the last T7 ever built for the RAF.  ;D

Now, thats turned out very nice indeed, Kit.  You've brought together a very disparate set of bits and pieces and welded them into a nice looking whole!   :thumbsup:

It's down to you too Brian. If you hadn't have done the work to mate the tandem two-seater nose to the Revell fuselage the T12 wouldn't exist. I'd spent ages trying to do that already and had totally failed.

I'd hoped to take some pics of the T12 sitting on the frost this morning as it might have looked like a snowfall in 1/72 scale but it'd melted too fast by the time I dragged myself out from under the warm duvet!

Instead here's a couple of pics of '228 at Conninsgby in 1968, the first taken on the building site of the new ODS ramp while they were breaking ground. '228 was used to ensure they'd got the positioning marks correct for the two types on the OCU, and the second pic was taken on a very wet ramp a few months later............  ;D :lol:





It's a lot easier to get the whole airframe in focus in daylight as the lens aperture is smaller with the improved light levels and the depth of field is greater. I just wish I had some better backgrounds for such shots.

Quite lovely Mr Kit.

... I just wish I had some better backgrounds for such shots ...

May I suggest two sheets of light blue poster card from your friendly newsagent, sticky taped together with a stick at the back to give some curvature. Cheap, quick, easy and more than adequate. I used this for about 15 years before I went and got a photo box.

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.

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

Terrific job Kit  :thumbsup:  I really like that.  Makes me want to start the tandem conversion I've got --- but I'd better not get distracted, got some projects already on the go that I really want to get finished first  ---

Thank you gentlemen.  ;D

It's very satisfying when you've had an idea in your head for a while, and then all the bits become available at around the same time, and you build it and it ends up looking EXACTLY as you imagined it originally.  ;D

That second outdoors pic, the one on the wet ramp, looks JUST as I imagined it many months ago.

It's even better when you guys like it too.  :thumbsup:

Great set of second shots. Like this one more and more each time I see it ! In fact, I think I might head down to my LHS right now and see if that little Revell beauty is still on the shelf.....might have my own two-seated plan  :thumbsup:

It's been OOP for a while now Cap'n, not sure why as it's a SUPER kit. But you've got two chances as it came as an F6 or an FGA9, the only differences being the tailcone and the stores.
