Revell 1/72 scale conversion
Hawker Hunter F.Mk.5

Hawker Hunter F.Mk.5

 


Revell's 1/72 scale Hawker Hunter F.Mk.6 is available online from Squadron.com for $15.96

 

Description

 

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.
