The Red Arrows is arguably the best known aerobatic team in the world and in 2014 the team's Hawk aircraft have a new tail fin design celebrating their 50th Display Season. This scale model fully replicates the graceful lines and the red, white and blue colour scheme of the real Red Arrows Hawk.

The dual control BAe Systems Hawk T1 is the RAF's advanced trainer, and has been used by the Red Arrows since 1979, replacing the Folland Gnat. The Hawk's Rolls Royce Adour engine produces 5,200lbs of thrust and can power the aircraft to a top speed of Mach 1.2. The aircraft has a maximum altitude of 48,000ft and fuel capacity gives a range of 1,000nm, making most of the world accessible apart from New Zealand.

The smoke generation system pumps diesel mixed with appropriately coloured dye into the jet exhaust to produce the colourful vapour trails that enhance both visual effect and flight safety. This allows five minutes of white smoke, one of red and one of blue.

RAF Red Arrows Hawk 50th Display Season Starter Set 1:72 Review

The detail on all the parts was superb, my only gripe is that the quality of the paint that is included isn't very good and is quite streaky.

RAF Red Arrow Hawk

I found that the canopy did not fit very well so I left it off (mainly so I could still see the interior).

Good Starter Kit

This is a good kit for a beginner. It goes together very well and has a nice level of detail. The underside White decals are tricky to line up and the wing fences need to be fixed on AFTER the underwing decals are fitted. This needs to be mentioned as sorting out after the event took a bit of work with masking tape. The pilots have plent of headroom for once and the Acrylic Arrow Red does exactly what it says on the tin and gives a nice finish even for a novice (my 6 year old son). The acrylic paints must have a primer (not supplied) and white is recommended as most red acrylics are a little translucent.
