Hawker Hunter F6 – Rare c.1957 promotional / contractor 1:48 scale model.....possibly Westway.

A lovely and rare promotional model of the Hawker Hunter F6........probably one of the last models from Walker Westway, but no labels present.

The Hunter F.1 entered service with the Royal Air Force in July 1954. It was the first high-speed jet aircraft equipped with radar and fully powered flight controls to go into widespread service with the RAF..

No less than 19 squadrons operated the Hunter in 1957, by which time the F.6 was beginning to replace the F.4s and F.5s. This variant was higher-powered and one of the problems this caused was a pitch-up at high speeds, not unlike the Swift. This was cured by extending the leading edges of the outer portion of the wing, giving the dog-toothed look of later variants.

Walker's – Westway Models Ltd. were active from 1942 – 1957 as bespoke model aircraft makers to the aircraft/airline industries, and were based in East Acton, London. The majority of the models were aluminium, but later also of hard resin, and this model is one of those. The airframe is excellent, and it is complete with it's original stand, which has a very small chip in the front which can just be seen in the photographs.

The model is to a scale of 1:48, with a length of 11.25 inches (29cms)

Hawker Siddeley HS.801 Nimrod MR.Mk.1 c.1965-79 - Rare Period Solid Model, by AGM -12 inch wingspan

Designed in response to a requirement issued by the RAF to replace its fleet of ageing Shackletons, the H.S.801 Nimrod MR.1 / MR.2 's were primarily fixed-wing aerial platforms for anti-submarine (ASW) Maritime Reconnaissance (MR) and anti-suface warfare.

The Nimrod design was based on that of the Comet 4 civil airliner which had reached the end of its commercial life (the first two prototype Nimrods, XV148 and XV147 were built from two final unfinished Comet 4C airframes

After the first flight in May 1967, the RAF ordered a total of 46 Nimrod MR1s. The first example (XV230) entered service in October 1969

Starting in 1975, 35 aircraft were upgraded to MR2 standard, being re-delivered from August 1979. The upgrade included extensive modernisation of the aircraft's electronic suite. Changes included the replacement of the obsolete ASV Mk 21 radar used by the Shackleton and Nimrod MR1 with the new EMI Searchwater radar.


This beautifully period contractor model is now quite rare, and represents an early MR.1.

Paintwork is a little aged, with one or two minor chips, and the Starboard tail surface seems to have been repaired at some time.

The AGM contractors label is still quite visible on the underside of the fuselage, and as usual, I have left the model 100% as found.

This scarce model has a wingspan of 12 inches (30cms) which gives it the rather unusual scale of 1:110 (I think !)

Supermarine S.6 – Very rare 1929 group with wooden model and original named paperwork 

Following the success of the Supermarine S.5 in the 1927 Schneider Trophy, R.J.Mitchell designed a successor, the Supermarine S.6 to Specification 8/28. Refining the design of the earlier S.5, Mitchell now used all-metal construction. Although its lineage was evident, the new design had to accommodate a new powerplant. The 875 hp Napier Lion VIIB engine was judged to be incapable of further development, and the S.6 was to use the new 1,900hp Rolls Royce R engine. With the problems of cooling attendant on such a high power output, the S.6 had surface radiators built into the floats as well as the wings, and Mitchell even arranged for airflow through the wing internal structure. [1]

Two aircraft (N247 & N248) were built at Woolston and operated by the RAF High Speed Flight, being delivered in August 1929.

The two S.6 racers were entered into the 1929 Schneider Trophy, N247 came first piloted by Flying Officer H.R.D.Waghorn at a speed of 328.63 mph. N248 was disqualified when it turned inside one of the marker poles, but nonetheless, set World closed-circuit records during its run.

This wonderful grouping of items from an estate, consists of :-

  1. A period wooden model (original, unrestored and aged) Original patina, the model is complete apart from a loose rigging wire, and has a wingspan of around 8 inches (20.5 cms)
