CHECK OUT FOR COCKPIT INFO MY OWN T-45 INFORMATION PAGE
Some things were done for the cockpit
details. On the T-45, the coamings (parts # 11, 12) have a different shape.
Also, cooling grids are seen. These were cut open and made from metal mesh.
The fuselage was further prepared
with putty and sanding. Here the rear end is seen, with the closed airbrake
area of the Hawk and improving the curve at the exhasut pipe.
The wing was also puttied and sanded
as a separate assembly. NOTE: the bulge next to the main gear bay is a
movable part! It opens up when the gear is down (so not fixed glued
The main assembly was done setting
wing to fuselage.
The gaps were filled and some work
is still to be done...
