SciFiantasy Space: 1999 Hawk

Well, I finally completed my MPC Space: 1999 Hawk model kit. I’m very pleased with how it turned out. The detailing of this kit is far better than the old one from the ’70s. It includes lots of decals which can be tedious to apply but it’s really nice they included all of the markings. Definitely need a decal softener to make them go on properly, especially for those that have to wrap around some of the parts. I used Mission Paints for the first time and am impressed with the smooth finish. The orange color is close to the orange tone of the decals. Overall it’s a pretty accurate replica of the ship.

I've been building models since I was age 10. I've kind of gone in and out of the hobby through the years because of schooling and career but now that I'm pretty well settled in, I've been building pretty regularly over the last 4-5 years. Although I've built some WWII ships and planes in the past, I now mainly build sci-fi ships. My favorite subjects have been Star Trek and Star Wars but also have built many from 60s-70s sci-fi TV. A couple of yrs ago I started a Youtube channel just to put in my 2 cents and give advice. Surprisingly it hit 1M in 2017 views and still growing. I enjoy scale modeling as it provides an escape from daily stresses and routines. It also has been a great way to stay in touch with my childhood memories and simpler times. I must add that I have met some really great people since becoming active online in the modeling community and I look forward to continue my contribution to the hobby.
