This is the old Hawk kit, in the Testors box with new decals. For a 1/48 kit it's pretty small. Detail is pretty much non existent, there is literally no interior to speak of except for a pilot figure holding a control column, but I have omitted him. The outline of the colour scheme is also engraved into the surface of the kit, so it's all been either masked and sprayed, or painted freehand. I knocked up a small base for it to sit on out of a picture frame and some floch.

Great looking racer Brad.  

 

I wish more folks would share their race planes.  

 

What did you use for the rigging?

One of the ancestors of plastic kits, but still a lovely result for something of its age. It really holds well the passing of time, thanks also to your skills, Brad.

:goodjob:

Some very fine knitting elastic I pinched from mums sewing box. I drilled .2mm holes and threaded it through.
