    I love the shape of the Hunter, and making new versions is just fine...

    Awesome..

    I like the different fuel tank configs
    The blister under the cockpit in the second one has vents (what is that?)
    the variation on the nose gun ports
    the different atteneas

    I'm surprised somolia had hunters

    The blisters are spent cartridge collectors. They were installed after some F1s managed to suck empty 30mm cartridges into the engine when firing...

    The vents are to release the blow-back gas from the guns (4 x 30mm Aden) as the install of the blisters made the guns a 'closed system'

    On the Swiss one, they installed some extra component into the blisters, but I'm not sure what that is.

    The blisters were called 'Sabrinas' named after a well-endowed actress in the 50s...

    Surely not Clave!? As a professional 'profiler' you've got to look deeper...:lol:

    What about the 'needle-nosed' WB188?...

    [​IMG]

    ...or the Hunter trainer versions?...

    [​IMG]

    Did you ever come across the 'original' P.1067 Hunter with bifurcated nose air-intake and T-tail in your research? Would that be a 'first' for profilers?

    I cannot find a picture of it but the best looking Hunter I ever saw was a Fleet Air Arm Admirals Barge T7. It looked absolutely stunning.

    Re the Swiss Hunter, they did have some extra's added to their machines such as Sidewinders, Bullpup ASM's and these may have something to do with the blisters
