Built straight from the box, using kit decals, as FS-343. Cockpit and pilot are painted "in place" as molded in the kit. Finish is Testor Buffing Metalizer protected by Future Acrylic floor polish. This model shows that the Hawk kit may be made into a reasonably realistic representation of the early models of F-84.
Bob's well-finished model belies the simplicity of the Hawk kit.
Decals for FS-343 are straight from the box.
Gear wells in green zinc chromate.
