The kit is mainly build out of the box with Aires Hunter resin cockpit set. I scratched build a few antennas to depict a Mk 74B, this is not the upgraded version of the RSAF Hunter which is wired to carry AIM-9 Sidewinders, next project perhaps. Master Model Hunter Pitot replaced the kit's pitot tube. The kit's squadron decal orientation is incorrect, I corrected it with a software in my computer and print the corrected version on printable decal paper. The tail number 524 (XF422) is from Xtradecal white numbers.

Happy National Day.
