Hawker Siddeley Hunter F. Mk.51 of the Royal Danish Airforce.
About this creation
In 1956, the Danish Airforce acquired 30 Hawker Hunter F.Mk. 51, to replace the outdated Gloster Meteors of squadron 724. They served together with Meteor NF11 and later on with F86 Sabre, to defend Danish airspace. The colorscheme is the standard RAF day-fighter camouflage, in which they were delivered. Later they were painted in an overall olive-green color, which quickly, due to fading, gave the planes a worn look. The aircrafts were planned phased out in 1961, but the last one, flew in april 1974.

Key figures:
Wingspan 10,27m
Lenght 13,99m
Full weight 7.922kg
Cruise speed 833km/t
Max speed 1130km/t
Service ceiling 15,8km

The model is aprox. scale 1:40


A typical characteristic of a Hunter is the V-shaped airintakes in the wingroot


Side profile, port


Port side, birds view


Aft section containing the Rolls Royce Avon engine producing 3654kg trust


Tail profile


Tail , birds view


Here, maybe, the aircraft-experts, will discover a fault in my design. The “dog-tooth” on the leading edge of the wing, was introduced later than the Mk.51


Side profile, starboard


Starboard side, birds view


The Hunter is armed with 4, 30mm Aden canons, which were removable as a package




Front, birds view


The nose houses a ranging-radar providing automatic ranging for guns, missiles etc.


Here is a LLD screen-shot showing some of the design-phases, as you can see, there has been a lot changes before the final result was reached.


And finally the Hunter is airborne.

Quoting Nicholas Smith Nice Job! Those 1950's jets are difficult to make, but you did a great job. I've been working on an English Electric Lightning fighter jet, but it is proving to be very difficult.
Thank you Nicholas, for commenting both the Corsair and this one. The E.E.Lightning has both a tricky wing- and fuselagedesign. Particular the angles of the wings and the nose-section and the "belly" are hard to get right - so good luck with your build.

Quoting Steffen Kasteleiner Extremely nice looking, Henrik! The cockpit windows and overall shape look fantastic. I'm glad I discovered your page! :-) To your question: For the windscreen of most of my my trucks, I have used a bar on which two horizontally-pointing hooks are fixed vertically, with its studs pointing outwards as you noted correctly. On the stud of each hook, each half of the window is fixed.
Thank you for you kind comment, Steffen.

Quoting Bill Ding that's a crazy-good hunter. I think that im gonna try and make my own, but it wont have any symbols on it.
Thank you for your kind comments on both my jet-fighters. Good luck with making your own.

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe Really nice! -And certainly quite unexpected. I thought you only did cars ;-)
Thank you ! As a matter of fact, I have another aircraft in the LDD-editor, I will not reveal what it is, but it´s WW II, Japanese.

Quoting john lamarck It's not very difficult to build a retractable landing gear with the Hunter. The wheels could retract into the fuselage if you replace the main landing gear legs by hinge plates. It's challenging to build planes with both realistic shape and movable devices such as flaps, canopy, gear and so on.
Maybe I'll take up the challenge with future builds.

Quoting David Roberts Beautiful. Having seen this aircraft flying, both at home in Wales and in the Swiss mountains, I think that you've got the shape just right. The wings, with their root intakes are spot on and generally the proportions look great too. Super work!
I wish I had seen one for real! But unfortunately I have never had the opportunity, even though I have seen quite some airshows. But maybe I am Lucky some day.

Quoting john lamarck Very nice Hunter. Too bad the landing gear doesn't retract.
Thank you for commenting. I think the problem with retractable landing gear is that the scale is too Little. Trying to hide a whell with a thickness equal to 3 plates into a wing of the the same thickness won´t work, so to me shape and appearance always wins over capability.
