I did a quick simple repaint of the Hawker Hunter for Norm who flew them in the RAF and now lives in Yukon. The markings are for 43 Squadron, the "Fighting Cocks". I need to move the ejection seat markings a bit for the final repaint. This is a wonderful kit that comes together very nicely and carries the beautiful shape of the Hunter very well. Thanks so much to the designer and other contributors.

Regards,
John

Is the lettering supposed to be upside down on the bottom of the left wing?

I think it is right (or left depending on which way you look) :D .

Good-looking aircraft!

What S/W did you use for the repaint?

The camo version by Rob Carleen is already in the Hunter package. I imported it into CorelDraw X6 and added the markings. The nose cartoon was edited in CorelPhoto-Paint. I think there might be better or easier S/W but this is what I know to use at this time.

John
