The folding wing Hunter looks really good.

Anyone up to drawing a photobird or an "Electric Hunter" (ECM)?

Reduce the sweep of all flying surfaces a bit and shorten the rear fuselage a bit as well.

As above only enlarge the flying surfaces' length some as well for a PR variant.


The Hunter is simply gorgeous as she is so I'd love to do one in a pseudo Arctic USAF scheme that has significantly more red and yellow on it.

Okay, I'll have to find it again, but I've got drawings for a four-seat. 2+2. Hunter trainer (the idea was a crew trainer for the TSR-2 as well as a larger "Admiral's barge").  It's still a doable concept and it's on my "to do" list.  Of course, the most obvious "whiff" is the CFE's suggestion of a three-foot extension just aft of the forward transport joint to enlarge the fuselage fuel tank.  That may get added to my P.1083/P.1109B cross.

The thought occurs to me that dropping the guns and modifying the "Sabrinas" (having seen a pic of the actress in question, it's an appropo name) as ECM pods would work as well as extra pods for the outboard hardpoints and tanks on the inboard ones.

Hi folks,

A place for your Hawker Hunter Ideas and Inspiration.

To begin with, here is my take on a tandem seating Hunter trainer:



if memory serves me correctly, Hawker did do the PD work on a tandem seat Hunter and ISTR that Maintrack's "Project X" series included a conversion for it.  I disremember the project number, though.

I got this from Martin Higgs (OGL on t'other forum), I think it's his own.  It's 1/72 scale though Greg.
I don't know if he's still producing it though.

the conversion is the old 'Maintrack' tandem Hunter (the resin piece has nose contour issues being based originally on the 'Matchbox' Hunter nose), currently Martin of the IPMS. Whatif sig is remastering it, i think another example is due soon from Cambell at 'Odds and Ordanance', an easy enough conversion tho just cutting and lengthening the forward fuselage and splicing in an extra canopy length  :)
