One small point about the wings central section colours: white above and blue below, but I believe the white wraps around the leading edge for a few cm on the lower part too. Can't find any picture of ETPS Hawks in that scheme that show this feature, but it can be seen in the picture you posted and there are some good pics of huntera that show this.

Mark builds a Hawk!?! Whatever next...

Seriously, nice start and cracking scheme to choose, am I correct in thinking this is the Airfix 48th scale kit?

The white did/does go over the leading edge (google for images of the recent scheme and its the same) and you'll notice the yellow effect from the "protection" put on the leading edges which obviously stands out against the white background.

I'll have a trawel through my reference photo's and see what I've got. Also the serials underneath are white.

Here's an old photo of 343 but the scheme is exactly the same. I've got more in the attic but that for another time........... This will give you an idea.
