The Red Arrows' aerobatic team originally consisted of pilots flying Folland Gnat T1 jets but in 1980, the Gnat was replaced with their current aircraft, the BAE Systems Hawk.
The Hawk T1 is a two-seater jet used for advanced pilot training.
The Red Arrows version of the aircraft is powered by a single Rolls-Royce Turbomeca Adour Mk 861 turbofan which produces 5700lb of thrust.
This enables the Hawk to travel at an impressive maximum speed of 645 mph.
Whilst diving, the Hawk can reach a top speed of Mach 1.2.
Airfix QUICK BUILD is an exciting range of brick-based models suitable as an introduction to modelling for any age of 6 and up.
The pre-coloured pieces simply push together to build an impressive model which can then be decorated with the included self-adhesive stickers. No paint or glue is needed to make these fantastic models look like the real thing, and once completed there’s no evidence of any of the brick fittings showing. When built they are tough enough to be used as toys, or smart enough to use as display models. Either will show off those great modelling skills!
Included with each model are a full set of easy-to-follow colour instructions, free-rolling wheels for cars and tanks, and display stands for all the aircraft.
