1/48 Italeri Hawk T. Mk.1

Gallery Article by Rodrigo Caselli Belém on June 7 2019



This is my HAWK 1:48 from Italeri. Is a very graceful kit and the pieces fit very well, except the link between air intakes and fuselage and main landing gear legs, that are too long. The ejection seats are well detailed and has some photoetch included.

The fuselage and wings was painted with Vallejo Model Color Dark Sea Grey 70991, Model Air Pale Blue Grey 71046 and Vallejo GameAir dead White 72701. The overall coat was a matt varnish from Warscenic, a brazilian manufacturer, with very good result. Decals are original and have very good quality. The weathering was made with Tamya panel line accent black and some black pastel chalk.

At the end, it´s a very beautiful and pleasurable kit to build and results are very enjoyable.
