BAe Hawk - Swiss Air Force - Revell 1/32


Recommended Posts

 

Here is my new project: the nice Hawk from Revell with Swiss Air Force Matterhorn Circle decals.

Switzerland flew these jets during the 90' and then sold them all to Finland. They were replaced by turboprop Pilatus PC-21, which allows a direct transition to the F/A-18.

The cockpit is nice and simple and fits very well.

I bought the Aires MK10 seats for Tornado. With 2-3 adjustments, they will be close enough to the Hawk's MK10s.

They are a bit less wide than the kit seats (which seems too wide),  the height is almost the same.

So far so good.

Hi Tristan, Is that the recent tooling ? How far out is that red plastic ! What mods. will you do to the seats ?

Should be a great build, all the best for the project 

Cheers,

Pete

That Red Arrows red plastic takes me back.

I remember ordering one from Argos (a UK chainstore) who were selling them at £9.99 each.

I dread to think how long ago that was. Even the shopping centre is long gone now.

I'm sure I got some Eduard bits for it too, in the hope of a quick build.

The original Hawks look so much better than any of their single seat or long nosed derivatives

Thank you Pete!

 

Yes, tooling is from 2010. The red plastic is unusual indeed, I'll see if this really adds complexity.

I still have to figure out what mods will be brought to the seats but this should be centered around the sides and headrest.
