Better than previous hawks
The Airfix red arrows (and design a hawk etc) are good but this one is even better. It just seems a little more detailed and there's a good range of drop tanks, 30mm Aden cannon, recon pod plus 4 wing pylons and 4 sidewinders (built as intended the kit only uses 2). It's a tail sitter but unlike the tucano there's loads of room for lead in the nose. The vortex generator on the front of the wings (moulded into the wing in previous kits) are fiddly and the sidewinder rails ludicrously fragile.
