It's a Warp recast. Replicas Unlimited still sells their 1/48 version ...even if NO ONE puts out metal bits for it...I'M NOT bitter.

I don't think it's a Warp recast. I built one about 8 years ago. They took the old Airfix/MPC model and partially assembled it, then resin cast the modules and made a garage kit out of it. When I bought mine they were very up front about the source they used. So no complaints from me, I got exactly what I thought I was paying for.

The Warp kit is noticably different, even just from seeing pics online.

The MiM Hawk Hoto is a recast of the Airfix model (been simplified for less seam lines and parts).Less detail then the WARP-version.
