Revell 1/72 Hawk T.1


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, just a few photos of my completed Hawk to share.

 

The model is a borderline tail sitter (interestingly an old boxing of this kit mentions nose weight but the new version I built doesn't and I forgot!) so the base serves a purpose as I can glue it down.

Thank you all for the comments, much appreciated!

 

Definitely a nostalgic project for me, many a happy hour spent watching these land and take off at RAF Valley.

Very nice Hawk indeed. The finish is very striking and shows off your painting/masking skills superbly.

Involved a fair bit of masking tape Terry, and a fair amount of touch ups too!

Very nice, and welcome inspiration as I try to get my one of these over the line. Great paint job I must say.

It'll be worth it once done!

Nice build with a very crisp paint job.

 

Out of interest I Googled the tail number only to find that this aircraft was eventually written off in a fatal accident at Valley in 1996. It was caused by an aileron control rod being left disconnected after maintenance.

@David Womby - thank you very much for the comment!

 

@Twobad - yes, I was aware of the unfortunate history. Ideally, I would have chosen another aircraft to represent but this is the only option catered for on the decal sheet without having to chop the decals up.
