project is a groupbuild to commemorate the 46th Malaysian National
Day on 31st August 2003. For this purpose two BAe Hawk Mk 108 were
built out of the box using the Italeri 1/72 Hawk Mk 100 kit and painted with
Gunze H335. Decals used are the soon to be released Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF)
Hawk Mk. 108 sheet from Unicorn Hobbies Worldwide, based in Kuala Lumpur.
The BAe Hawk Mk. 208 was built using the front half of the Matchbox Hawk 200 kit grafted onto the fuselage and wings of the Italeri Hawk Mk. 100 kit. The inflight refuelling probe and cockpit were scratchbuilt along with several other small details.
