The guys at the Aviation Workshop continue on with their line of Hawk decals. This one is for two RAF display Hawks of 2003 and 2004. The first is for a Hawk T.MK1A XX261 in the Hawk 30 year anniversary 2004 display season livery with a red chevron along the fuselage disappearing into the Union Jack on the tail.

The second is for a Hawk T.MK1A XX250 in the 100 years of flight anniversary 2003 display season livery.

Jon Freeman has once again done another great job on the artwork.

All the decals required for the two aircraft including the data decals are supplied on a single sheet and a comprehensive colour 4 view plan of each aircraft is supplied. 4 colour photographs of the Hawk 30 year anniversary 2004 display season livery is supplied as well as some detail colour tips. If further details are required a list of references is supplied as well as list of kits and conversions.

The decals are beautifully silk-screen individually printed by Microscale in the USA. The colours are in perfect register. They are very thin and flexible, but also very strong, but care should still be exercised when applying to the decals to your model.



I highly recommend these decals to anyone wishing to build those out of the ordinary and anniversary schemes.

Highly Recommended.
