Here is my newest effort, this was completed in 4 days thanks to being sick off work with a chest infection!

As a background the USAF decided to look for a new LIFT trainer to replace the T-37 in the early 80s this lead to the adoption of the BAe Hawk as the T-45A with the Naval variant becoming the T-45B. Here she is in ATC colours:



Here is the first time I tried this colour scheme in the infancy of my profiling days, here I used the Hawk 100 series as the LIFT plane. I dropped the red line on the one above as I used the T-37 blue and white colour scheme as my start point where previously I used the Texan II:

Looks great, Damian!  That really turned out well.  Glad to have you back!  I particularly like the way you do canopies.

Cheers,

Logan

Beautiful hawks!!  And they still might happen as part of the T-38 replacement program.  Still, it would be interesting to see an AT-45 single-seater based on the Hawk 200.

Instead of going the route of developing their own costly trainer the JASDF instead opened a global competition. The BAe Hawk won with Japan odering the Hawk 66.

1. Standard trainer scheme:



2. Commemorative F-2 scheme:



And of course Blue Impulse:

That's alright, Greg.  When the RNZAF inevitably retires their Hawks, I'm sure someone in Florida will buy the whole lot of them and you can see them here!

After a little time away from the Hawk because I am strating a new profile I present to you a duo of RAAF Hawks because I think we can all agree Greg has been patient with this :)

1. The modern low viz scheme:



2. The awesome "Fanta can" scheme:



And lastly *gasp* a real world profile!!

Orange and white Hawks look gooooood!  :-* What a coincidence that I purchased an Italeri 1/72 MB-326 for the "Roulettes" decals and another Airfix Hawk only recently.  >:D
