That is a gorgeous build! Rigging, paint, decals...all just right. Beautiful!
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

I have the Supermarine kit in my stash. Not Hawk kit but it is molded in blue. 1/72 scale I believe. Just can’t remember where or how I acquired it. Maybe at a flea market or antique store a few years back.

Now I can see what the colors were. I wasn’t sure if it was silver or light grey of sorts. In fact, I didn’t know there was one in 1/48 scale. Well done!!! :shoutout: :shoutout: :shoutout:
