Alternative Hawk users - SAAF

As part of the GB I present my latest creation. 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:

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:

How about an earlier RAAF introduction - after all, the Hawk was originally looked at as a Macchi replacement as early as the 1970s by the RAAF.  An early model Hawk in this scheme would look great IMHO:



or possibly even as a Roulette's bird:

A Japanese one makes a lot of sense since they were building their own version of the Adour for the T.2/F.1 anyway... :)

Ah, as I like to tease my Kiwi mates, it's still part of Greater Australia...

Love it still! :)

I suppose you will do a Singaporean one or a Sri Lankan or even a PNGDF one next...

After a little time away from the Hawk because I am strating a new profile I present to you a duo of RAAF Hawks :)

1. The modern low viz scheme:



2. The awesome "Fanta can" scheme:



And lastly *gasp* a real world profile!!

Seeing as there was a dealine extension on the Coulda, Shoulds GB I decided to crack on with some SAAF Hawks before moving back to my other project (US-1 Kai or HS-2). So I decided to go old school with the first profile in the Impala Mk.II scheme, which isn't NMF but a Silver paint that ends up as a matt after long enough exposure to the African sun (there's one mounted at the aitport her in PE)



The next one I went for was, of course, a mount in the Silver Falcons. I love their new scheme with the big falcon's head on the front fuselage. Now what I've done is more of "an inspired by" than a direct copy of the scheme layout found on the PC-7.



for those of you who were around may recognise this scheme because I tackled it once before in my early profile days :)



This is it for the Hawks for now, until I get more info on the T-45A/C, or until some whimsy to do something colourful bites!!

Yeah, that blue one is gorgeous. I only have one question, where does the mail fit?
