True Details continues to re-release ex 'KMC' cockpit
update sets. The subject on this occasion is the Hawker
Hunter F.6 by Academy in 1/48 scale.
This set is the ex-KMC set 48-6016.
in the well known True Details packaging are 11 pieces in a
light cream resin. The parts that are supplied include:
Ejection rail as fitted
to the cockpit rear bulkhead.
Ejection Rail supports.
Starboard side cockpit
sidewall detail ( Separate casting.)
column and a separate more detailed hand grip.
New Throttle Grip.
An additional detail
casting that fits on the top of one of the Ejection Rail
As we have come to expect from this manufacturer all of
the parts are well cast with excellent detail reproduction
and no air bubbles or casting deformities. Casting blocks
are minimal and there should be no problems in removing any
of the parts. The smaller detail parts will be able to be
removed safely with an exacto knife.
I do not have an Academy Hunter F.6 in my kits but I do have
an F.9 version by the same manufacturer that is identical in
the cockpit area that I was able to dry fit the cockpit tub
to, and found that the modeler will have little problem with
these parts and fitting during construction.
The set comes with a small set of instructions that give
basic assembly instructions and painting colour notes for
nearly all the parts. No FS references of equivalents are
given but the modeler should be able to work these out from
his/her own references.
