Hawker Hunter - Early Cold War RAF recognition model 1/72 scale – Rare

A rare 1950's Recognition model of the Hawker Hunter.

First flight 20 July 1951 the first jet-powered aircraft produced by Hawker to be procured by the RAF. On 7 September 1953, the modified first prototype broke the world air speed records for aircraft, achieving a speed of 727.63 mph.

Airframe is wooden, and in good condition. From the construction of the aircraft, I would say that it was either produced by Rowley Workshops's or James Walker's. Beneath the wing the AID stamp is still faintly visible.

At 1:72 scale, the model is around 8 inches (20cms) in length.
