Here is an overview of, as far as I know, the ways of making a two seat Hunter.
First up is the Welsh Model Vac form that now just sits in my model box

The RetroKit and Whirly models came out very close together.
RetroKit's method was to provide a fuselage and other bits to add to the Revell kit.

Whirly provide a complete multi media kit, great for those without a donor kit

and now we have the Mark 1 kits, It's really good. The detail is a little soft on the new fuselage but a great model.

Thanks for this!
Built the Welsh kit many years ago(25?!)
Built as a T8N, using modelart decals,will try and find it.
Have a couple of Retrokit conversions and 2 Whirleybird kits.(hope to start one soon)
Retrokit can be used with Mark 1 kits.
If you wanted a single and 2 seat, could buy the Mark 1 single seat ( 2 in a box) and a Retrokit conversion.

Always good to see pics of conversions that dont often see the light of day. However, some of your links are a bit off and images on the small size!
Any change of large images? (dont forgert you dont have to self host, you can upload them direct to the forum)

PS the pure white sheets of the Welshmodel vach form dont show in the post below?
