It got built really quickly as the Freightdog parts, especially the wings,  fitted brilliantly.

Looks great, I'm another one you've beaten to it.  Different and good to see in US markings, I expect mine will be RAF, possibly another Hunter or NATO operator.


Very nice!

And you beat me to it.  I've been planning the same build (although RAF with Firestreaks) since gathering all the bits at least a year ago. Hoped to be the first but I've paid the price of prevarication!

I will plod o regardless though.

I had the same thought, but the way things are going, I might be the last to complete one..... :rolleyes:

I doubt it as I might get around to building mine by the end of the century at the pace I build stuff.

Well, I might beat you all because I'm hoping to finish mine by the end of the decade! :o
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.

This is why it pays off to troll the  boards once in awhile.....then you don't miss stuff like this !

Excellent build. Love the way the hunter looks with a nose like that, and it looks right at home in those colours/ markings !

Really reminds me of this early study of what became the F-105.

Now that would be something to build, I like that  :thumbsup:. It looks like a scaled up RF-84F.

I can see what you mean there, it also looks as though Hawker's might have had some input as well, at least to my eyes anyway. And we all know what they are like  ;)
