Paint those in a desert scheme and nobody would grumble.

As long as those razor blades are painted in raspberry ripple colour, all will be fine. :biggrin:

I think some would genuinely prefer the correct markings yet rotting scenario. :roll:


I disagree - you've missed the point. Those aren't the alternatives up for debate. The point is that a great deal of time and money has been spent on this airframe, yet a rather silly end result has been produced when an authentic one was perfectly feasible, with similar resources.


I don't think I've missed the point at all. I genuinely think people would rather it rot. Yes the owner's spent a lot of money on a paint job. Maybe the owner wanted a low maintenance hybrid RAFO/8 Sqn colour scheme? After all, they are very much linked even if a hybrid scheme is not accurate, and shiney.

Nope, as Nigel said you have completely missed the point.
As for a hybrid scheme, no RAFO Hunters wore desert camo - they appeared to go from their former RJordAF RAF scheme into yucky matt 2 greys.

Keep your teddies in your pram. :smile:

Yeah they did didn't they. We're all completely wrong. Sorry. Doesn't explain the photos that appeared (to use your word) to show RAFO Hunters (including T-bird) in two tone sand/brown camouflage though.

I'll leave this here:

#awkward.

Sums up the modern world though; let's get really angry about something as inconsequential as an aircraft owner painting an aeroplane how they want to. You an your mate Nigel are the type that make forums like this somewhat uncomfortable places to be and give the "enthusiast community" the slightly special place in society it has.

Oh Gerty you do amuse me as I’m sure you do “my mate Nigel”! :grin:

Teddies well and truly stowed in this pram- with such a glum outlook on most threads I can only imagine your pram being bereft of toys or other things of pleasure…

Well you and “your mates” are in the completely wrong camp if you think RAFO Hunters ever had desert camo-

And is me (and a few other saddos) wanting a bit of accuracy on the painting of a jet a metaphor for the state of the modern world?? I really think not. Au contraire about us making the place “special” and uncomfortable, as one of the most respected and revered long standing members of UKAR, consider it a privilege to be posting alongside me… :snack:
