1/144 Hakwer Sea Hawk FGA.6 (MK.50)- Miniwing
Another great kit of a very successful design from the famous Hawker Company. This early jet aircraft was conceived towards the end of WWII, but did not enter service until 1952. Although original intended for the RAF which had to many jet types, it ended up in service with the Royal Navy, and also the served will with  German, Dutch and Indian naval forces with over 580 being produced. It was finally retired from Indian service in 1983!

This kit from Miniwing is produced to their usual excellent standards and as nice clean lines, there is also a nice amount of detailing with regard to the panel lines, and should make an excellent addtion to your collection!

The kit contains 17 Resin parts, a small fret of PE parts, plastic rod, a clear cockpit canopy, instructions (not shown) and  two decals schemes are provided as follows:

 - 804th Squadron (Royal Naval Air Service), HMS Bulwark, Suez Crisis 1956 [1] [2] [3]
