Same as Doogsatx, I'm in the Facebook SMCG group and I'm trying to go for a model from start to finish in 45 days. Decided to go for something cheap and cheerful (until I added aftermarket). 

 

Revell's 1/32 BAe 1/32 Hawk T1.A in 74 Sqdrn markings with dropped flaps and missiles! 

 

Aires Seats, CMK Flaps, Master Pitot, Xtradecals and some scrap bin parts for the AIM-9S and launchers.

I'll be building it closed canopy, but with how large the clear part is, I'm detailing up the cockpit anyway.

Be careful with the closed canopy. Check the fit. If its like the one I did, it doesn't sit well when closed.

Already checked it mate, I'm going to put a strip along the edge of the frame to seat it in correctly.

Busy evening yesterday, drilled out the cannon barrel, got the beginnings of the resin flaps in place and the cockpit detailing is coming along nicely.

Looking mighty fine so far.  I'm super interested in how you go with the resin flap sets as I have one in the stash for a rainy day. :D

A day above ground is, in my opinion, a good day.  :D

Good man! I wish I had had the foresight to do that.

Cockpit is ready for proper painting and I've been messing round with melting the tyres to get a flat spot. I've overdone it here so Ill have to rebuild them but I like the potential here.

Looks like the wheels need some nitrogen in them :oops: . If they looked like that on the flight line I would put the guy who serviced it on a fizzer :fight: . For those who subscribe to bulging side walls, just look at your correctly inflated car tyres and see how much side wall distortion there is.

 

Your build (tyres withstanding) is looking good. Looking forward to seeing the finished article.

 

Bob.

 

 P.S. my own Hawk is stalled and has been temporarily Hangared (2 plus years ) so I think that mine will need more nitrogen in the tyres :innocent:

I've been using Geedubs thread on here as a guide to adding some detail, so I added the top exhaust vent in a similar fashion to his.

Not massively concerned with accuracy in terms of where the pipe goes but filling unsightly open holes.

Been messing with some AMMO worn effects as well to add some primer peeking through the cockpit paint as I've got some references showing this.
