Kit
Esci 1/48 Kit – Basically out of the box, with RedRoo 90Gal tip tanks.  (one kit I'd had for 10 years or so.  I bought another to make up a formation: displayed airborne due to damaged undercarriage on the older kit due to moving, hence the mounting on a home made "Book end" type display)

Reference
Hawkeye decal sheets
