    That is a Hurricane MKIID, Tin Opener or Tank Buster.
    The Kit is an Airfix MKI/MKIIB Kit with the large air vent from a Revell MKIIC

    Sure, TL. In 1/72nd scale, you won't need much. A piece of 'Plasticene' from a toy shop with, if you can get some, lead air rifle pellets, or small lead-shot fishing weights. Press the lead shot into the 'Plasticene', and then mould it into the front of the nose. There should be plenty of room in the Hunter. BTW, your models are looking good.
    Terry.
