Holy cow.Incredible ship with a fantastic background.The only thing I can complain about is that the pictures are too small for me to either put them as a full screen computer desktop background or print a nice 8" by 10" picture of these fantastic photos.

Hey Keith,

I didn't forget. Here's the remastered CM I mentioned.

I still need to make the panels for the bottom, add some windows and rails along the viewports, but this is what I came up with. I should be finished with everything in the next few days.

I think it'll look better than what came on mine.

Hey Chris,

You like? Thank you. It's still a couple hours away from completely finished, but it's gettin' there. Beats the heck outta a solid resin one. Makes the whole thing quite light (headed) .

This is the first "test" assembly from the master plugs.

That is looking excellent. I did not realise that you were intending building it in that fashion i.e. hollow. Looks like a lot of work has gone into that.

Keep up the good work and please post photos of the finished article.

Thanks.

Keith

I tried to tell ya'.

Get the hacksaw out and give me your address.

I'll need to see progress pictures along the way. We'll all want to see some before and after pictures.......

That sort of thing.....



Seriously though, As I mentioned to you during your build, you can readily see 99% of what AB used to make the master for this version of the HAWK, or at least I can after digging through a few hundred kits I've bought strictly for Space:1999 kitbashing. It's all I build and the kit stash grows a little on a regular basis. If some of y'all would like to try and make one for yourself in this scale, just say the word and we can start a thread on "How to make yourself a small HAWK" type thread. From everything I see, it wouldn't cost anywhere NEAR the price of the original AB, be MUCH lighter, look nicer and use at least 3/4 original kit parts instead of resin.

It's too late for you and me Keith, we've already spent the money, but with all the modifications I've made to mine, I can certainly help you guys make, what I feel anyhow, would be one of the best looking HAWKs out there in this scale.

Just a thought.

Rob.

I can't say I'm not tempted but I have to be honest with you. I really have no enthusiasm for revisiting the Hawk right now. After fighting with Zero X I'll be making something simple like one of my own design as a method of relaxation (yeah, I know a strange concept to many of us modellers), then comes a big upgrade to my International Space Station after the next shuttle mission. And I still have two films to make for the local Edinburgh IPMS.

I would be glad to take one, but can't promise when I can get round to it.

Just kidding Keith,

I do that. Quite a bit as a matter of fact.

Only about cutting your's up Keith, not working on a new one though guys.

As I said, I understand and don't blame you. I wouldn't do it either if I had finished the thing.

I said I would show you. I have.

Sorry for jumping in here, I just saw this thread.

Keith, Beautiful job on your Hawk! I love the photographic setting you put it in. (I almost like the Hawk better than the Eagle....almost )

I'm curious; how big is the AB kit? I ask because I have the SSM Hawk kit. It's about 17" long and would look about right next to a 22" Eagle. But it desparately needs a new CM. Rob, will yours work with this kit?

Art

Edit - I found it. The length of the AB kit is 22". Was the Hawk supposed to be the same length as the Eagle. I always thought the Hawk was supposed be a bit shorter.

Hey arthur,

Yes, it's a little big compared to some of the other HAWKs. As Keith said, it's nearer a 1/35 scale or so.

I'm not sure if mine would work or not.

Here's more progress pictures. It's practically done now. Just need a couple detail pieces.

Thanks, Art. Glad you liked them.

Rob has already confirmed that this Hawk isn't in scale with the Eagle which is a pity. I did use 1/48 crewmen, only because 1/35 would be too big. I think I estimated it to be 1/39 scale, smack back in the middle of both standards.
