Revell 1/144 - Hawker Hunter FGA.9 - WiP 1 built and ready to prime

Revell 1/144 - Hawker Hunter FGA.9 - Box art

Kit which i reckon i bought soon after i started modelling 1/144 and for some reason never got around to building, probable due to my dislike of these sort of camo patterns on jets, just not a fan for some reason and really don't like how i can't get them to look correct when i paint them.

Very nice kit, looking almost perfect. When i first bought it i did a kit review but way back in 2009 for some reason i resized the photo (no idea why?) [Kit Review] - Revell 1/144 - Hawker Hunter FGA.9 -

Great little kit to build and up to the usually great standard of the Revell own kit over the last decade.

Added the intake detail which seems to be the only big feature missing from the kit, copied a 1/32 resin cockpit which i really very happy with and lowered some of the flaps.

Would paint soon but thinking of building a few other RAF jets with the same camo pattern and paint in one session.

For BAC Lightning II, the same considerations apply as I am.
However, this year, Revell will release the F-16C.
I expect it very much.
