A British-built advanced trainer, the BAE Hawk was introduced in 1976 and remains in service not only in the United Kingdom, but in India, Australia, and numerous other international militaries. The Mk. 120 is a South African variant first seen in December of 1999, and shares only 10% commonality with the first-generation models - it features an impressive fatigue life four times that of its prototype.
This 1/72 scale, die cast replica of a Hawk Mk. 120 flown by the South African Air Force as she appeared in 2008 features engraved panel lines, an opening canopy, a well-equipped cockpit including a detailed instrument panel, removable drop tanks, full weapons complement including missiles, optional-position landing gear, authentic markings, and a display stand. Measures approximately 6¼" long with a 5¼" wingspan.
