  India Independence Day - 15th August 2020 



India celebrates its 73 years of Independence on 15th August 2020. Happy to present the Airfix Hawk 132 trainer aircraft in the Indian Air force colors. Used by the IAF as a Lead in fighter trainer (LIFT). The Hawk is also used by the Indian Navy and its aerobatic team 'Suryakiran'.

A nice and easy kit from Airfix and comes with markings for the Royal air force, Indian air force and original BAE systems demonstrator. 

This is a brush painted model with Humbrol acrylics. Fun to build and looks great as a display model.
