Description

HAWKER HUNTER The Hawker Hunter was a jet fighter developed by Hawker Aircraft for the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the late 1940s and early 1950s. In September 1953, a modified prototype of the Hunter broke the world air speed record for jet-powered aircraft, achieving a speed of 727.63 mph (1,171.01 km/h; 632.29 kn). The single-seat Hunter was introduced to service in 1954 as a manoeuvrable interceptor replaced the first generation of jet-powered fighters in RAF service such as the Gloster Meteor and the de Havilland Venom. YOUR KIT This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK model of a Hawker Hunter, designed to be powered by a Jetex motor. Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing. The Jetex motor that would have been fitted to this model is no longer available. Rapier jet motors from the Czech Republic also fit the kit and may be available at model aircraft shows but their supply is unreliable. Some modellers have had success with electric ducted fans (EDF) but again supply can be tricky. Designed for free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed". This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding. KIT CONTENTS Balsa wood sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood. Vacuum-formed canopy. Tissue to cover the model. Full size printed plan with instructions. Please Note: The model pictured above is a KK Hawker Hunter built and painted by John Watters. Paints and decals are not included in the kit!
