    I know. I just can't help myself. Chasing Harriers and Hawks now. Talk about out of the frying pan.....

    My hand is improving slowly thanks, just wish that I could be doing some sim building whilst I'm off work.

    I've been following your blog, and I'm really pleased to hear about your progress on my old baby.

    Re: My latest buy.. Bae Hawk canopy

    AAAHHHHHH.....so it was YOU, you got it. FANTASTIC!!!!

    I very nearly went for the canopy myself. BUT as I'm in the early throws of my 737, AND I have a main panel, plus 80% completed side panels, plus a 95% completed Martin Baker MkH5A seat for the front office from a real F-4J..........best I let someone else have a go. The other thing is where would I put it!!!
    Best of luck Dean, think the Hawk will be great fun, keep us posted

    Re: My latest buy.. Bae Hawk canopy

    Yes, it was me. I had already started making enquiries into a harrier replica made from GRP when this canopy came up, so I bought it.

    This leaves me with the awkward question of whether to pursue the harrier project or start on a hawk project. There are more harrier parts about though, so that may be the decider.

    I'm going to wait and see how the harrier looks when it comes out of the moulds and then decide, unless the incredibly unlikely happens and a hawk turns up.

    Hope there were no bribes involved in the purchase
