Following the release of MIM-23 HAWK from AFV Club, Hobby Fan announces a misslie loading platform for the anti-aircraft system.
HF087 - M501 Missile Loading Tractor

We don't have any info on this particular release, but knowing Hobby Fan offerings this is probably a full resin kit. We'll post more information as soon as possible, so stay tuned to Armorama.

There was a helicopter also, it carried two of the missiles. Don't know if that was actually used operationally, or just a proposal, or a figment of someone at Adams. Think two missiles would have been too heavy for a small helicopter. Al

I'm hoping for an all-injected kit.

It looks like a Cessna CH-1 / YH-41 "Seneca" : Empty weight: 2,080 lb (943 kg) Gross weight: 3,100 lb (1,406 kg) A bit too light indeed (one HAWK missile weighs 1,290 pounds = 590 kg)... H.P.

I'll bet that M-501 is going to be beautiful but oh so pricey .

Now all we need are the half dozen radars, comms vans and transport trailers and vehicles and we'll have a semi complete HAWK set!
