  1. You must all forgive me, I'm from Hampshire originally and trout streams and watercress beds are the bedrock of my mythos of home...
  2. It makes me think of some delicate insect, a moth or even more a may fly, beautiful and iridescent, although doomed once the trout notices.
  3. Fair comment. These will <not> be the same
  4. Hope this is more fun than the blasted Blenheims!

    Splendid work PC. Sorry my own efforts fell by the wayside.

    Note also the early style ejector seat headboxes - unfortunately I think my kit seats are too firmly fixed to replace, but I might try adding some extension pieces to fool the eye.

    And here it is at Greenham, the week before its accident: Hawk T1 by Rob Schleiffert, on Flickr I'm building a bit of a hybrid, with the 1983 decorations but armed as per the earlier photo.

    Here's the subject of my model, seen the year before. Note the Aden cannon and wing pylons. Also note the large registration number on the tail, replaced with the code M for the following year. XX353/353 Hawk T.1 by KeithM3, on Flickr

    Fixes, blasted auto-incorrect. Fences may not be the correct term, I mean these blighters: Hawk wing by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr Now set and cleaned up as best I can. Thanks HÃ¥kan, they might look ok if I ever get them finished!

    Probably only news to me, but the Airfix 151 Squadron airframe featured in the new boxing, had an eventful time in July 1983. On 22 July it was flying at the IAT at Greenham Common, one week later, it was written off following a mid air collision https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/wiki.php?id=55494. Thankfully all four crew involved in the collision were able to eject successfully.

    @CedB did yours have the forward wing fences ready fitted? I seem to have boxings both with and without fitted wing fences, and fitting them was a pain! I thought I was being clever by filing a slot in the leading edge, but I did it too far outboard to start with, so had to bodge, I'm waiting for the foxes to set solid before I try and clean them up.

    Not sure what paint you prefer @Shelliecool but Humbrol do both the old (19) and new (238) reds in both acrylic and enamel
