  • Hey all.

    im wanting to reach out to someone who is savvy on the ole 3D printer. I have acquired the BAe Hawk T1 but wanting to modify it to make it my own. Im wanting to convert or upgrade to the BAe Hawk 127 for a RAAF scheme Im currently working on the decals for.

    Main part is the nose as you will be able to see from the image Ive attached (hopefully) other parts like on the vertical stab I can do with some balsa or foam as well as some other scale features. It was mainly the nose. If anyone can help more than happy to discuss and get your ideas/input into.

    Thanking you

      Hi, just got a Freewing Hawk and the upgraded suspension set. Has anyone had any issues with the replacement rear legs being shorter than the original ones? Mine are about half an inch too short so the wheels hit the wing instead of going up into the wheel wells when retracted. I don't want to start making the wells bigger and potentially damaging or weakening the wing, so would hardened steel rod be ok to make some replacement longer pins to get the legs to the correct length? Thanks.
      Wikigmc I just bought a Hawk and upgraded gear and had the same issue. How did they address this for you or are you still waiting on a resolution? I have been keeping up with the service ticket to see what will happen and I have just been informed that I was refunded for my upgrade landing gear. From a customer standpoint this is good but I really wanted those upgrade gear!! I have no idea if they will be offered now or what. I was told that they had to go through their stock to see what the issue was. Now I am kind of wishing that I would have bought the FMS version of the Hawk that came with the shock absorbing gear already installed along with gear doors Oh well. I hope they can resolve this and offer the correct fitting upgrade gear again.

      • Well I had the dreaded "let's split this thing in half" landing yesterday. I hadn't installed the retrofit kit at the fuselage joint, and that's exactly where it split. The good news is the retrofit kit is also a very effective repair kit! I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure if I HAD installed it, the damage would have been much worse, I had about a 3 foot bounce, then it tip stalled and rolled in nose first ( 100% pilot error)

            bbaumer, this retro fit kit that you speak of, where can you get it? What does it consist of? I don't know if my Hawk already has it or not and would like to check.

              I received mine as a surprise about a month after I bought mine. It is 4 vacuum formed pieces of plastic, two for inside the fuselage, and 2 for the inlets that span the main glue joint between the front and back halves of the fuselage. I would suggest contacting Customer support if you need one
