RAFBF Hawk 'Design A Hawk' Scheme
After a phenomenal response to their 2013 ‘Design a Hawk' competition conducted on behalf of the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, and after days of scrutiny, the winning design was selected by a panel of judges made up from the RAFBF and Airfix.
The winning design created by 14-year-old Heather Morien from Cramlington, Northumberland, was liked by the judges because of its vibrant and fun use of the RAFBF colours. The judges commented that there were so many excellent entries that selecting a winner was particularly difficult, and they’d like to thank everyone for taking part.
For her brilliantly colourful design Heather received a mounted version of her model.
The tandem two-seater Hawk T1 was the original version of the Hawk used by the RAF, replacing the Gnat in the fast jet training role. Deliveries commenced in November 1976.
