1/48 Airfix Hawk 100

Recommended Posts

This is my build of Airfix's Hawk 100 built as 419 Sqn's Anniversary bird in Lancaster Camo using Caracals decals. The model was built OOB other than the decals, and it was a bit of a fight as it was never meant to be gear up. The main gear doors were especially bad as they are molded in one piece and need to be cut apart in order to get them to fit. 

 

 RCAF birds use the center fuel tank and baggage pod combo, which does not exist in 1/48, so I bent reality a little and used the wing tanks in order to make it more visually busy. Finish is a semi-gloss.

Very  nicely done, especially with gear up on the stand. 

There is absolutely nothing wrong with OOB builds, as it's the final presentation that counts, and yours is just fine.
