1/72 Hawk 81
April 16, 2013 in Aviation
This the Airfix Hawk 81-A-2 that I built straight from the box, with the only modification being to carefully separate the canopy from the windshield. Fitting the canopy over the spine was more than a little difficult so a vacform canopy is a better solution here.
Other than that little problem I really enjoyed this build. Painting was done with Lifecolor acrylics. The decals (printed by Cartograf) performed very well and was a pleasure to work with.
After this one I really need to get on with my 1/48th scale Hasegawa P-40E… 🙂
