This is the 1/48 scale Hobbyboss Hawk 200, built as Hawk 208 serial M40-32. A Hasegawa pilot was used to fill the cockpit and stretched sprue was used to replicate the wing fences. The model was finished using Tamiya paints and Mr Black Finishing Surfacer 1500. Anniversary marking decals are from Fishbone, national insignias from decal-la and stencils from the kit decal sheet.

Happy Merdeka 2020.
