The guy riding by on the bike at the end is priceless. Looks like he was out on a delivery.

Looks great looks like a easy install also

Do you have any pics of the light kit?

What servos are you using?

Did the wing have the straight leading edge and Slats? They did not highlight this in the video.

Why would they call it a T45 then? Even the stab is incorrect

yes this was same like the Hawk 100 , the T45 kit included it (the prototype not install it), and the T45 stab is little big than the Hawk, the wing different with the Hawk, I will take some pictures for compare both, sorry the 1/5 T-45 have no the slat.,

Ok, thanks for the clarification. No clue why they'd post an old pic of a different airplane?

If anyone is interested, the parts ahead of the horizontal stab are called SMURFs (Side-Mounted Under Root Fins). Glad to see that this will be a true T45 and not just another Hawk painted like a T45. Good job Anton. How long did it take to add the million rivets??????

A little off topic, but its slow and the smaller one isn't out yet.

I'm converting my 1/3.65 scale SM Hawk into a stand off scale T-45 in centennial of flight livery. Adding the side air brakes and tail hook, along with a number of other scale details. SMURFs added.

Will obviously not have the correct stab and wing tips. I'll convert the nose wheel to tandem if SM ever comes out with a 1/3.65 scale T-45 and I can retrofit.

PBS 230N for power.

Just a few weeks away from maiden.

I like it a lot. Great job! That color scheme or the other one with blue and red highlights is the scheme I'd like with the new T-45. Hoping to order soon

Just a quick note for all of you T-45 jockeys out there - the T-45 main gear doors close after gear extension, unlike the Hawk. This is to prevent them from striking the deck on arrival at the boat...

Bob ... good point! I noticed that in the photos and plan to sequence mine that way.

Take a look in this photo ... do the doors hydraulics bleed down after a while or do crew members open them for inspection or maintenance?
