Volume 4

With the cockpit area completed (sigh of relief !) Dave’s Hunter is really moving along now. In this volume, we build the turbine access hatch and complete the fuselage.

Next, we begin the wings showing various tips and techniques dealing with the flaps, nose gear steering, main retracts, and the drop tanks.

Along the way, we see unique ways to ensure accuracy during construction.

The model will soon be ready to paint !

  • Making a hatch and fitting it perfectly
