Hawk GB Welcome and Chat


Recommended Posts

Guys, this is a nightmare! Choices, decisions and you've all left me at the starting line!

So, I'm still up for this but need to know if the followng have been taken.

XX172 St. Athan Station Flight in either the black with red dragon or red/white/blue with black dragon sceme.

XX205 208 Squadron 2009 Display Aircraft

XX261 208 Squadron RAF all black in early 2001

XX157 92 Squadron mid 1990s Grey with blue fin

XX245 FRADU late 1990s all black.

They're the one's that I have decals for and appeal.

Mark Ive just been scanning the list, Ive not been given XX245 RAFBF markings, I checked with the future build thread and at the time it was free and I placed a claim on it, Am I still okay to proceed with her?

Hi Royster,

Sorry, I think I got it wrong. I'm not doing the blue/yellow livery. I'd hoped to do the 2009 aircraft, this one:

It's actually XX245 and XX307. Have either of these been taken? And here's XX157...

Folks, I've decided to stick with XX289 in its 63 ® Sqn days. Two grey scheme with black tail.

As I'm currently having a lot of problems in enjoing modelling, it will be pretty much OOTB

Hi everybody,

I won't participate in this GB, but I have a related question....

A few years back I saw a black RAF Hawk which had a big sailer on starboard vertical.. Could someone pin-point me to which occasion was it painted for, or does it have an official name, decals maybe.... ? :whistle:

Thanks in advance,

splinter

Bumpy .... :whistle:

Does anyone know if the det cord on the 1/48 Italeri kit is raised or recessed? I haven't taken it out of the bag yet. If it is raised, how do you paint it it without making a dogs dinner of it?

its raised and a pain in the bottom, there is no real solution that ive found, if you find one let me know

Raised huh? <_< I'm thinking I might try some artists masking fluid. It's fairly runny stuff, it might conform to the edges of the raised lines. I'll give it a go and report back Mark.

Hi guys, having spent a while checking who is doing what can anyone confirm whether or not XX261 (Fradu black) and XX260 (Red Arrows) have been taken. I think Bus driver mentioned doing 261 in an earlier post but wondered whether he was as it would be quite neat to have 260 sitting next to 261 on the shelf. If its taken then i'll do XX281 instead as that I think is still free.

Cheers

Graham

For anyone interested I think the following reds are still available XX179, 227, 237, 242, 253, 264, 292 and 308

and FRADU fly Navy 100 scheme XX281 and 337 (assuming XX261 is still free of course)

Sorry all, but I'm going to have to bow out of the Hawk Group Build. A multitude of things have got in the way and prevented me from completing my planned build. Things are now just about back on track, but not enough time left to get my entry finished. There's some superb entries in the finished gallery and am gutted my effort won't be joining them. It'll have to next time for me!

Regards all.
