Revell BAe T.1 Hawk - Red Arrows
« on: Thu May, 03, 2018, 07:14:AM »
Morning all!

A friend of mine has commissioned me to build him a BAe Hawk T.1 as part of his on going projects for his artist page.

I've previously built a 1:32 scale Mk.IIb Spit for him, which features in his piece "with the sun at my back" as reference points for him.


In his next project, the BAe Hawk is the subject of choice, and here is the build log for it....

A decent full colour instruction manual

Decal sheet is nice and thick, especially the white markings

Red Sprue's to hopefully help with the final paint of Tamiya TS-49, there's a bit of flash from themould, but generally its a good level of details for a 1:72 scale kit.

My only concern is the det cords for the canopy...my thinking is to apply a gentle wash of white so that the paint recess into the det-cord sections and then wipe away the excess paint whilst it is still wet.


The cockpit goes together fairly quickly, and I've decided to try and paint the detail into the dials

Seats are up next, lots of detail on them as well.

Small update, the MB.10 seats and cockpit are pretty much done....small and fiddly though

Lighting was getting a bit poor by this point...

Small update today, just buttoning up the fuselage.

lots of filler and sanding needed though. this is just one example of the fit. not bad...but not great.

Small update

Wings are on and the main principle build is almost done

I had managed to do slightly more than the pics show, the forward canopy din't fit, standing proud by 2mm so some cleaver shaving of the cockpit display was needed.

I'm not wondering how to paint/colour the det cords in the canopy to highlight them?

I'm thinking f a very fine drawing pen possibly a Roiting 0.2mm drawing pen to highlight the det. cords....and thoughts and tips would be appreciated.

I want to know if these details are more detailed?

They're not bad, reasonable amount of detail but it's what you would expect for a 1:72 scale basic kit.
