    Default Tanked Up...

    I have only just found out how to get the full set of external tanks on my Hunters...I was labouring under the impression that the only optional model of the aircraft was the "Clean" version, but when I looked it was the full long range version.

    What a shame I did not discover this before I sent them all out to Kenya last year. It would have been the correct rig for them

    Anyway here are a few shots I took today of the AI Traffic long range version with inboard 230 gallon external tanks and out board 100 gallon external tanks:-


    This is the only shot of "Echo"...The other shots which are of Des Melaniphy's Hunter XJ643 are here:-
