The fantasy behind it that it was stationed in the north of Scotland where there is no airfield to intercept Russian Bearbombers on their way to the U.S.A. in case of war.

But because the floats reduce the speed of the Seahunter to that of a Bear bomber, it would also need early warning guards, Iím thinking of Lancasters with a radarradome or a Shackletons, when they fit in the time.

The model was painted with Humbrol paint and the floats are from

Kingfishers, the Hunterkit may be from Airfix.

With kind regards from M.A.D.
