On the 7th September 1953, legendary WW2 Fighter ace, Neville Duke flew a specially prepared bright red Hawker Hunter to a new world air speed record of 727.63mph, Duke was awarded the OBE for his work as Hawkers chief test pilot and for his contribution to the development of supersonic flight, a very risky business back in the 1950's! The bright red Hunter became a favourite at UK air shows where Duke would fly the Hunter to supersonic speed, thrilling crowds with sonic booms before such things were deemed a nuisance and were resigned to a by-gone era!
This superb Hunter features a nice quality fiberglass fuselage and sheeted wings/horizontal stabilizers, ideal for strength and high speed, both are superbly finished in a deep gloss red. The Hunter is 5 channel, featuring a rudder and split flaps, it is also supplied with fixed landing gear, but could be converted to retracts without too much work. The removable fan cover is secured with magnets and an efflux tube is included as well as a comprehensive hardware kit. The included high power 90mm EDF unit will require a 6s capable motor at least to get the best from this stunning looking 1950's cold war warrior.
The Hunter features a generous size wing and tail which combined with it's slippery shape give you a nicely balanced, very capable jet with an impressive flight envelope. With the right set up, this superb jet will be capable of blisteringly high speed yet the flaps keep landing speeds sensible. For that final touch, we have a full scale cockpit and pilot available (not included: See related items below) which will really finish off this unique, superb flying and very attractive model of one of the pioneers of the "jet age".
