"> The USN is painting up jets in celebration...this is just one (cool)
Looks like they're doing aircraft in paint shemes from different eras - like an F-18 in Korean War paint scheme.

Not exactly a T-45 of course, but there are plenty of Bae Hawk kits in 1/48 out there. Should be possible to convert one into the other, they're not that different externally.

Actually, Revell Germany are releasing a 1/32 Hawk -
Even in 1/32, it will be a small model. It's a small jet.
A Hawk and a T-45A or C are subtly but notably *very* different...slatted wing, different wing shape (it's a completely different wing, actually), Navalized landing gear, nose landing gear doors (the forward ones on a T-45 are *huge*), stab tip extensions, stab strakes, speed brakes, single ventral fin, totally different cockpit panels, NACES seats, tail hook, dorsal mounted RAT...and that's just off the top of my head...

Hmmm, sounds like I'd better do some more homework on this subject. Some of these will be pretty much invisible in my usual 1/72 scale, and some easily replaced, but there's also some major rework on that list of yours..

Yeah...it's not really a simple conversion. I hope RoG brings out a properly done 1/32 T-45 sometime.
