Revell 1/72 scale
by Libor Jekl
Revell's 1/72 scale Hawker Hunter F.Mk.6 is available online from Squadron.com
Here is my 1/72 scale Hawker Hunter F Mk.5
converted from the Revell Mk.6 kit.
The conversion comprises replacing the "dog-tooth"
leading edge with a straight one, taken from the Pavla Models "Upgrade
set for first prototype" conversion set.
The difference between the Avon and Sapphire engine
unit has been ignored (except for an extra panel line), as the exhaust
tube difference in range of couple of inches is marginal in 1/72 scale.
The other aftermarket additions include the Eduard
Zoom and canopy mask set and the Propagteam decals.
The kit is painted with Gunze Aqueous H331 Dark Sea
Grey and H73 Dark Green colors on upper surfaces, with the underneath in
Alclad II Semi-matte Aluminium to simulate the High Speed Silver.
