Kinetic T-45
« on: January 30, 2012, 11:37:09 am »
No...not the floaty thingy...

Just read over on ARC that Kinetic have a 1/48 T-45 Goshawk coming out this year.  Anyone heard when?  I cant wait to make one up as one of the six leased by the RN and operated out of Pensacola after the decision to make an interim F-18F buy while waiting for the F-35C to mature.   ;D
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

only six?
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

T-45D.  Not sure how it was supposed to have looked, but my idea would be to graft a Hawk 100 nose on to it.  The synthetic apeture radar should fit in there fine I guess.

Now also wondering if the Paragon Hawk 200 conversion will fit on it..?

A-4 replacement anyone?

 ;D

I came up with a quick & dirty image of a "Hawk 150" a little while back.  Hawk 200 canopy on a Hawk two seater frame.  Cut down the fuselage to match or add an A-4 style hump, comes out looking quite bit a like a Skyhawk.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Already done in 1/72, albeit with the Matchbox 200 nose ( and Italeri -100 too ) http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,22208.0/highlight,sea+hawk.html

I would like to build a USN "A-45" to fill out the flight decks of USN carriers, or perhaps a new bird for the Brasilian carrier.
USS New Jersey, BB-62, Vietnam
USS Neshanic, AO 71, out of Lindberg Neches and a WHOLE lot of extra details
And several other vessels named after NJ, locations and battles herein, and people herefrom
