Xtradecals has released a decal sheet for the recent 1/48 scale Airfix
Hawk T.Mk.1a in RAF service.
A whopping 27 aircraft are covered on this amazing decal sheet.
This is possible via a combination of good planning and the
typically small markings carried on Hawks. The markings make up for
their size with their large variety - checks, diamonds and plenty of
The subjects are finished in schemes including red, white and
blue; red, white, blue and grey; the early scheme of Dark Sea Grey,
Dark Green and Camouflage Grey; and the more recent (and familiar)
low-visibility two-tone grey. Five of these grey machines are

The decals are accompanied by attractive, full-colour instructions.
Eight plan view diagrams accompany the 27 profiles. All the

The decal sheet is perfectly printed, with the multitude of colours
all in register. Decal film appears to be very thin.
This is a fabulous decal sheet literally jam packed with
interesting subjects - a must for modellers plannig to build one or
more Airfix 1/48 scale Hawk T.Mk.1A kits.
