Singapore National Day



This is an Academy early issued FGA 9 Hawker Hunter kit with Cutting Edge resin cockpit set. The kitís supplied decals then are somewhat limited, I added relevant decals leftover from my previous Hunter builds.

I printed both 140 and 141 Squadron insignia on printable decal sheets, this is to represent the two squadrons that operated Singapore Hunters.

To represent different roles of the RSAF Hunters, this example is configured to a target tug. I scratch built the mounting bracket and the release mechanism for target banner. The target banner (not to scale) is fashioned from a gauze bandage.
