Don
hank you for the kind words.
I must say this is the first time I have built 3 planes, immediately one after the other, each with some identical features and all to the same same scale. It is...

The paint scheme is simple. It same colour all over, two thin coats of acrylic and a light spray of acrylic lacquer. The slight gloss surface means the self adhesive roundels actually stick.

Still moving on.
The wings go on.
A bit tricky as the aileron servo and its wire is already in place so it has to be threaded through to the cockpit area as each wing is glued on one at a time and...

There are not quite as many step on the reverser as with the rx driven servo but not that significant. My reasoning was as it is working an elevator in conjunction with a good servo hopefully the net...

Still plodding on with the Hawker P1081
As the tail plane is severely swept it made sense to use two elevator servos.

After lots of planks and pins the fuselage looks like this.

Areas of the skin have to be left open to allow the elevator servo wires to be fed through the formers.

Well I thought about it and decided to go ahead and build the final Sea Hawk version the P1081 which had a 'straight through' exhaust.
After all it started out as the second P1052, the swept wing...

As I hoped the P1082 Swept Wing sea Hawk" does indeed fly.
The rather better static thrust to weight ratio combined with the improved breathing of the inlet duct as speed has given it quite a...

I agree but it appears to be adequate. At the stall limit of the servo at least one half of the elevator moves.
The nose/cockpit is a direct copy of the Sea Hawk.

The swept tail plane of the P1052 presented a bit of a problem due to the acute hinge line and the fact I already installed a single servo in the tail before thinking about it.

On with the construction of the Swept Wing Sea Hawk P1052.

Hawker Sea Hawk in 5mm XPS

I was given about 20 sheet of 500 x 1200 5mm thick XPS in both grey and green. It was being used as a underlay for laminate flooring.
