PJ Productions from Belgium continues with their simple conversions allows the Airfix F.6 to become a GA.11 single-seat training version for the Royal Navy. Looking around the Internet, there were 40 GA.11 airframes converted by adding an arrester hook, adding a Harley light to the nose and eliminating the guns. The starting kit is the Airfix Hunter F.6. I am sure the Academy F.6 could also possibly work.

The conversion set contains three grey resin parts and one clear resin light. Casting is excellent with no pinholes and minimal casting blocks. Preparation is simple by removing the casting block on the parts for the arrestor hook and filling the one lone gun port. Washing of the resin is also recommended. A small instruction sheet shows the location of the arrestor hook under the aircraft. The nose plug looks like a direct replacement for the kit part and should fit right in place. The clear resin light is good but a quick polish and some Future should make it stand out.

This is yet another great and simple conversion for the excellent Airfix kit which will yield a unique version. Well made, inexpensive and simple to use- definitely recommended.

My thanks to PJ productions and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review this conversion.
