Well I'm pleased to be able to show some photos of my brand new Fisher Model & Patten 1/32 Hunter T.7 conversion, designed for the excellent Revell Hunter kit. I received this conversion a few days ago. As usual with any resin from Fisher, the castings are of very high quality. Along with the resin there is an excellent photoetch sheet and decals printed by Microscale for three versions of the T.7 in RAF service. The conversion itself is very easy to use. The only casting blocks requiring a razor saw are on the bottom of the ejection seats. The remainder of the 'large' pieces come ready to use, some small pieces need to be snapped off their sprue or cut free with a #11 blade. The original Revell kit requires just one cut...about four inches of the kit spine must be cut away to make way for the resin spine. It took me all of three minutes to remove this part.
Here are a few photos of the parts included in the kit and the marking options (linked from Fisher Model & Pattern website)...
Paul started shipping the conversions last Monday, and I believe he's quite busy casting and filling orders. If you haven't ordered a conversion yet, you can order directly from Fisher by following this link...
Hunter T7 orders
I think this first version for me will be the high speed silver 74 Sqn version with the yellow trainer bands. BTW, does anyone know how wide the trainer bands should be on a T.7?
I have already ordered two more conversion sets so I can complete the other two very attractive options.
Anyway, enough talk, here are some photos.
BTW, don't do what I did in the above photo. The canopy hold open mechanism should NOT be glued so it is flush with the top of the spine. The instructions clearly explain this, but I just missed it.
