Good afternoon all,
Well its been an age since i last posted anything, so i thought i'd show you all my Hawk that i have been working on for the last few months on and off.
She wears the special markings of 76 sqn RAAF, which i think are lovely markings.
The whole cockpit is scratch built, but its a shame as you cant see much of it, as are the GPS anteena and wing fences.
anyway i hope you like her, as much as i do.
Oh and the base top is hand painted by me, enjoy.........

Martin

Cool looking hawk B)

Did you use the Airfix kit decals? They look a bit thick on my sheet.

Looks great, I built one of these and found it a very enjoyable kit to build, nice work love the weathering and the display stand too.

All the best
