Hawker Sea Hawk (profile model)
« on: September 10, 2014, 01:25:48 AM »
My dad was always a huge fan of this model and asked me if I considered making one.
I did not, but now I have a nice challenge!

When it is finished I will paint it in the colours of the Marine Luchtvaartdienst (Royal Dutch Navy).

Another nice model. I have this one on my to-do list but who knows when it will happen. So many project so little time.

This plane is ideal for a profile model! Nicely done.  I look forward to seeing the painting steps.

Garret, we have not seen any of your profile models in years.

Thanks Lou and Garet!
I wanted to post a quick paintjob update, but I can't add any files to the Gallery.

I am not sure if it is a restriction on my account or a general problem.
Also uploading files one by one, does not work.
It would be great if one of the admin's could look into this error I am receiving.

Critical error
Error executing ImageMagick - Return value: 1

Thank you.

In the day, most navies used the dark slate grey and sky colour schemes. The Royal Canadian Navy was no exception.

Hi Lou and Gordon, thanks for the compliments.

The scale, I will have to check.
I'll get back to you on that, Lou.
