What is it
The BAE Hawk is a superior jet trainer aircraft! This will be a striking addition to your collection. The model sports an all-black exterior and you can add RAF symbol stickers once assembled. This model has a total of 26 parts with 3 additional parts for the stand. The height of the model, when placed on the stand, is 123 mm.
Airfix QUICK BUILD is an exciting range of simple, snap-together models suitable as an introduction to modelling for children, or as a bit of construction fun for the more experienced modeller.
The pre-coloured pieces simply push together, without glue or paints, to build an impressive model which can then be decorated with the included self-adhesive stickers. Plane models also come with their own display stand to show off your handiwork!

What our experts think
The Quickbuild BAE Hawk is great for improving children’s dexterity and hand-eye coordination as they put together the model plane. We found it a good way of encouraging the children to follow instructions and use logical thinking to build the model (and take it apart!). Our testers found the instructions easy to follow and were able to build the plane independently.
Once the plane was built, our testers added it to their lego constructions and flew it over their cars and houses, pretending to fire missiles. This made it fantastic for adding to their imaginative play, helping to build vocabulary and storytelling skills. The plane itself is quite robust, and we found even if it broke apart during play, it was easily reassembled.
