Malaysia National Day

 

      

With decals courtesy of Fishbone, this TUDM Hawk is 'dressed up' on the old Airfix 1/48 scale model. The Fishbone decal is limited run and has good opacity, robustness and fits the kit nicely except some adjustments needed on the air intakes due to the severe contours.

Took about 2 weeks of modelling time, mainly a couple of hours per night and a long weekend. Main adjustments were at the wings air slates which no model depicts our Malaysian variant. Everything else was out of the box. This livery was shortlived and only a couple of pictures exist, even at the airbase archive itself. And thanks to Fishbone for the decal. 

Happy Merdeka 2019.
