  2. Hawk 100 Series Upgrade Set (for Airfix kit) 1:72 Eduard The new Hawks fro Airfix are good little kits, now Eduard are along with an update set for the kit. Update Set (73726) This set comprises two sheets of PE, one of which is nickel-plated and painted, the other bare brass. The first items are some new instrument panels, and side consoles for both cockpits.. The seats get a make over with new pads, belts, head box parts and firing handles. For the rest of the cockpit there is a new front coaming and the large one between the two cockpits. The
  3. There seemed to be very few 'Reds' Hawks so thought I'd better partake...another standard kit in the post that I will attempt to run side by side.
  4. Hawk T.1 (04970) 1:72 Revell When the RAF began the search for a new fast jet trainer to replace the Folland Gnat, it was originally intended that the role would be fulfilled by the SEPECAT Jaguar. However, the advanced capabilities demanded of the new Anglo-French aircraft meant that it became too complex for use as a trainer As a result, Hawker Siddley Aviation began work on a private venture known as the P.1182. The design team produced a relatively simple, subsonic aircraft with a number of clever features. The fuselage is designed around a large, tandem cockpit,
  5. Wasn’t planning on entering this GB, but saw the review of the 1/48 Airfix release of the Folland Gnat which contains marking option of an aircraft in the colours of the Yellowjacks. Formed in 1963, the Yellowjacks were an RAF aerobatic display team by a group of flying instructors from No.4 Flying Training School. Leading to what we snow know as the Red Arrows in 1965. I thought the gloss yellow scheme with black tail would look good on a hawk. So here I am. Kit was ordered from Jadlam on Saturday. Something to look forward to as we go back into lockdown.
  6. BAE Systems Hawk 100 Series 1:72 Airfix The Hawk 100 is the next generation Hawk following on from the original Hawker Siddeley Hawk. The new hawk has more advanced avionics, the provisions for more weapons, all contained in a redesigned fuselage with a new wing. The Hawk 115 (CT-155) was ordered by the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Hawk 127 by the Royal Australian Air Force, and the Hawk 128 (or T.2) by the Royal Air Force. The Kit This is a re-issue of Airfix's 2008 new tool with extra parts to reflect the Hawk 100. The kit

  9. Hi, I just finished this 1/72 Airfix Hawk T.1. I used Eduard photo-etched and CMK resin parts. Tamiya paints and Future were used for the finish. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
  10. Arrived yesterday from Boscombe Down the original and complete Hawker Hawk prototype. For anyone modelling an original Hawk a visit to the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection at Old Sarum Airfield is essential. You can get close and personal, take as many photos as you wish and sit in a Hawk cockpit section that sits next to the full size aircraft. 154 arrived yesterday, by air: slung under a Chinook for the hop from Boscombe Down to Old Sarum. She is the very first Hawk flown, she spent her life being used for test and evaluation work, spending
  11. On holiday at home relaxing watching railway drivers eye view video's on & spotted two aircraft parked on an industrial estate in Knutsford - Jet Provost & what appears to be a Hawk, further investigation via Google street view aso shows a Tornado at the same premesis. Anybody know the background? On the left at around 57 min 10s into the followng video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSr0EXGxpdE
  12. The well known and loved by all Special Hobby's kit is well worth the manufacturer's brand. Special in every aspect: quality of the molds, fit, level of details, accuracy. And isn't our hobby (inter alia) a struggle against the efforts of producers, how to do something wrong, if it could be good. So everything is all right. If you are interested in details and have strong nerves, please look for the workshop thread. The construction process was marked by numerous problems, caused by myself. First the fuselage broke twice where it was connected to the engine cowling, then after asse
  13. canopy was missing from the kit so had to wait for it to arrive in the post from revell, after a quick email asking for a new one. Also needs some decal fix to really sink the arrow down on the underside.
  14. Here is my Airfix Hawk T2 of 25 Sqn at RAF Valley. Thought the new squadron would a nice way to start on the Hawk stash. Still find getting a nice gloss finish a bit of a battle and this is my first effort with the gloss black. Additions for this kit were the Air Graphics decals and baggage pod, aftermarket metal Pitot Probe and scratch built wing tip missiles and aerial behind the cockpit..
  15. My entry for this GB will be the HobbyBoss 1/48 Hawk T-1A No 4 Flying Training School, RAF Valley Though I had thought of building an F-5E Tiger of VFC-13 Flying Saints Adversary Squadron - “Training the Fleet Air Wings” from NAS Fallon

  17. Miles M.14 Hawk III/ Magister Mk.I "Egyptian, Turkish and Thai" Special Hobby 1:48 The Miles M.14 Magister was designed to meet the Air Ministry Specification T.40/36. Miles based the Magister on their existing Hawk Trainer. The Magister was a tandem open cockpit design with a low wing cantilever monoplane. The main structure was Spruce with a covering of plywood. The centre wing section was of constant section, having no dihedral. The outer sections had dihedral and tapered towards the tip. The undercarriage was fixed on the main and tail wheels. The main wheels could be covered by spa

  19. Hi Everyone, This is the first time I have posted a model in the RFI section. As the title suggests this is the recent 1/72 tool Hawk from Revell (04921). The kit is good despite surprising amounts of flash for its age and bright red plastic (well it is a Red Arrows kit after all). As the kit only includes the very early short fin fillet and curved rear of the fuselage, I decided to complete it as XX164 of the Central Flying School, RAF Valley 1979. This meant I had to modify the kit seats to add the wider headbox. These were completed with homemade masking tape belts. I also lengt
  20. Hey BM looking for kit recommendations to do :- RAF Tornado (scheme from the last 10 years)any help on payloads also would be much welcome. Finnish Hawk (in the recent 2 grey scheme) A-7E (Late 80's almost 90's).I've had a nosey on this one and it seems a toss up between the hard to get Fujimi or the Esci mould?. Super Etendard (most current scheme/variant) any help on payloads on this one too. Harrier GR.3 (Falklands maybe post Falklands).Any help on smart bomb loads would be great too. Thanks in advance Sha
  21. Hobbyboss 1:48 BAe Hawk T.1 XX172 of RAF St Athan station Flight 2001 with ModelAlliance 'Dragon Hawk' limited edition decals. Overall I am satisfied with it but the glue failed on the seat belts after I fixed the canopy in place and the gloss is not as glossy as I would like...plus I should have taken more time with the transfers....but overall from a distance I'm happy....
  22. AFV Club is working on a 1/48th Curtiss BF2C-1 Hawk III kit - ref. ? Source: https://www.facebook.com/AFVCLUB.TW/photos/a.237327066312820.56570.236926266352900/1776152392430272/?type=3&theater Box art Remember Freedom Model Kits is also preparing a similar model: link V.P.
  23. I succumbed - such a great idea, Hawker (Siddeley) GB - an iconic company through the years. Yes the Hawk is now built by BAE - but started life in 1974 as the Hawker Siddeley Hawk (XX154 the maiden flight) so has graced the RAF since it entered service in late 1976 - thats 41 years service, which I suspect will be hard to match in service life by type over the RAFs 100 years? So it made sense to build a Hawk to celebrate its status amongst so many iconic aircraft. I have a twin build RAF Hawk T1A build going on in the RAF Centenary GB, in a 19Sqn Spitfire C
  24. Thought I would pitch in with this - sat in the stash, with another for sometime. Came across the story of this paint job and also saw the decals. Never built 1/32, so here goes. Off to the World Cup on June 3rd, so will need to get on with it. Have a couple of Airfix Harriers on the bench that missed the FB online build I entered for its 50th anniversary - will need to get those done as well, maybe for the next KUTA! Link to the RAF? Well they threw me out of planes for 25 years, I also got a 'hop' in a Hawk out of Valley as part of my FAC - Forward Air Controller (new
  25. This is my long in the making 1/32 Revell Hawk T1. Xtradecal 100 Sqn anniversary markings & CMK extras for the cockpit & ejector seat. Apart from the dreaded red plastic, it's quite a nice kit but the decals for the MDC were a scrat and, despite copious amounts of Microsol, still don't look quite right. Should I make another I'd trim those decals. Apologies for the dust, which I've just noticed on the pics (D'oh!) & some silvering of the decals. Comments, observations & criticisms welcome. Pete
