Default LMC Hawk MkII

Hi all - I came across the subject kit at a garage sale and don't know much about this particular model. It's a NIB kit with a nice fiberglass fuse, pre-sheeted foam wings (48" span) and lots of hardware. Specs call for either a 40-60 glow front prop drive or ducted fan unit. I'm wondering if anyone has any knowledge of this kit and/or how they set it up (prop or DF) and/or how it flew. The picture of the assembled model came from google images, I have the kit. Thanks.

There were a few of these Leicester Model Centre Hawks about during the late 80's / early 90's. Only ever seen prop versions fly.

Had one with a 61 great flyer snag with small hawks is wing loading so a turbine setup might be a bit heavy for it

The Future,,, Lol,, I have already built one Hawk with a .60 then their F 4 Phantom which i fitted a Rossi .60 rear exhaust, i also built the F 16 with an ops prop then one with a micro mould turbine, a super natty which i restored last year with an Irvine .53 which is probably one of the best planes that i have ever flown, The Mirage 2000 with a Rossi .40 and made a bigger wing to try out my Kit Built Wren 54 Mk 2 which is now in a Aviation desigh Rafale, and as i haven't much else to do after fitting in my new kitchen,,,,,, a quick Video of my Rafale,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_ETHL8_1Cw

The Thorpe Brothers did a conversion for this, you might try contacting them, they may have 'stuff' around.
It was never that good as a DF, not light enough. wing loading a bit high, but it did fly.

Hello

I still have mine. What dimensions do you need exactly? Mine never flew it was too heavy and probably the Cyprus heat in summer didn't help eather. It was powered by a K&B 45 and turbax fan. I still have everything.

Hi, nice to hear from you, NO way will it fly with a turbine, mine had a Rossi in the nose,,, What i need is everything, ie; span, main wing chord and thickness at the center, and angle, the same half way along where the 'end bits' go on, andthe 'end bits' again with their angles and of course the same again for the tail plane,,, and the balance point thanks Paul.
