Fortcoming Airfix Hawk 100 re release,....excellent decal options


Recommended Posts

Very nice options, although I'd have preferred a standard Canadian aircraft rather than the commemorative one but that's just me.

But £13.99... true that prices increase every year, but I remember buying the same kit for a Euro tenner when it was first issued. In fairness though an aftermarket decal sheet with these options would not be cheap so maybe it is a decent package after all.

Pity that the kit is not up to the most recent Airfix standard and is really a bit too toylike, it's one of those early Hornby era kits that would benefit from an update

Sure buildable, fit not bad apart from a couple spots, there's some detail but nothing spectacular, heavy panel lines but very good shapes. There have been great models built from this kit and even OOB comes out nice. It's not great for a 21st Century kit but not a bad kit in general. I prefer the recent Revell Hawk but that is not a 100. I also have a couple of this to build

Excellent - Aussie and Canadian markings in the one box. I have a kit if of this in the stash from the last time it was issued. Can’t wait.

I'm tempted by the 25 Sqn option, always did like the silver bars on Javelins and more recently Tornado F3s.
