Malaysia National Day

 

This is a fully sketch built 1/32 Hawk Mk208, a couple of years ago a friend ask me to build a 1/32 RMAF Hawk 208, since there is no such kit available on the market, I had to build everything from scratch, the building progress is documented with photos  below.

For the clear part, I made my own canopy by using clear resin, I scratch built the shape of canopy, make a mold and recast with clear resin.

This is just an experimental project that Iíve research for a few years. and this one is among the best result that Iíve achieved so far. I try my best to get the quality close to plastic injection kit but as always there are is still a lot room for improvement. It took about a month to complete this one and I truly enjoyed it.

Happy Merdeka 2011
