The FAA Models conversion allows modellers to use the popular 1/72
Revell Hunter to expand their Hunter collection and build the Royal Navy
version. This was the last Hunter version to see active service in
British Air Forces.
The conversion consists of:
- PR10/GA11 nose
- Replacement wheel well bay – without the gun pack
- Replacement square flags
- 2 x 100 Gal Drop tanks
- 2 part air brake
- Tail hook
- Tail bumper
All parts fit perfectly to the Revell Hunter. This conversion does
not require any cutting as the new parts replace exiting parts from
the Revell kit. The new airbrake allows the modeller to position it into
the open or closed position.
Care needs to be taken when cutting the parts from their mount, as the
resin can be brittle, especially around the drop tank fins. A sharp
scalpel or hobby knife will overcome any issues here.
A small two-page instruction sheet is included and shows a picture of
the hook and tail bumper position. As this conversion replaces the
existing kit parts, the Revell instructions can be used to the location
of most parts. Modellers will need to consult their reference material
to decide which nose replacement to use.
With several companies releasing decals for the 1/72 Royal Navy Hunters,
this conversion is a welcomed addition to any Hunter collection.
Recommended, especially to Hunter buffs.
