Aviation72 superb new 1/72 diecast model of Hawker Sea Hawk FB.5 WM969, currently preserved at the Imperial War Museum in London. Limited edition of only 1,300 pieces, complete with uniquely numbered card.
The Hawker Sea Hawk was a British single-seat jet fighter of the Fleet Air Arm (FAA), the air branch of the Royal Navy (RN), built by Hawker Aircraft and its sister company, Armstrong Whitworth Aircraft. Although its origins stemmed from earlier Hawker piston-engined fighters, the Sea Hawk became the company’s first jet aircraft. After successful acceptance in the RN, the type proved to be a reliable and sturdy workhorse and went on to export success abroad.
