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  :)

cheers, Joe

What about a scale-o-rama using the Hunter as a basis for a Hawker V-bomber?

I'd like to see one of these Hunter profiles with the Gripen forward fuselage.  Sometime ago I did some comparisons of the Hunter and Gripen and found the two kits are practically the same size and equipment placed in just about the same position too.  Since then I've always considered the Gripen the 'Super Hunter' and especially so when you take into account that most of the Gripen design team were from BAe and many had been associated with the Hunter design.

I prefer the upper one -- the lower one with pointy nose is obviously the US-built version :)
