Not sure if this is the correct place to put this, but here goes.

On the RAF Hawks since they came into service I have noted two distinct and different ejector seats being fitted,

the first being MB 10B-2 Mk1 which appear to have been fitted to the a/c at the start of the hawks service:

and the second being a MB 10 of some other version which seem to have been fitted at sometime during the service life of the Hawk

Does any one know any details of when or why the change of seat happened, are the older seats still in use, how far back does the use of the

newer seat go, and especially if the newer shape seat, as included in the 1/32 Revell Hawk would be accurate with the Grey/Green TWU camo?

Thanks in advance

Using your pic as reference for the seats in my build Vincent so thanks for posting it. So far as I can see this type was fitted the gray/green TWU machines as well thus the Revell kit items will need modifying.
