Thanks Guy's. Its a commission build for a mate. he wanted the speed brake down (not able to do on the real machine with U/C down) and no weathering. I very much liked working on the real machine while at Brawdy.

Cracking build! I will be doing a similar build myself too soon. How did you find the Aires cockpit? I have one for mine.

The Hunter is awesome Smeds and I bet your mate is pleased.

Thanks guys. The Aires pit actually fitted very well, although I think the seat still looks a tad small !! One issue with the Academy kit is the cockpit is too shallow, my main reason for using the Aires tub.

Farnboro' Air Show, 2000 or thereabouts.

Used to watch Hunters from my school classroom as they went to and fro. Both TWU & FRADU airframes. Happy days.
