Sea Hawk by AliceFromLake ()
The Hawker Sea Hawk was a British single-seat jet fighter of the Fleet Air Arm (FAA), the air branch of the Royal Navy (RN), built by Hawker Aircraft and its sister company, Armstrong Whitworth Aircraft. Although its design originated from earlier Hawker piston-engined fighters, the Sea Hawk became the company's first jet aircraft.
Following acceptance in the RN, the Sea Hawk proved to be a reliable and sturdy workhorse. A considerable number were also produced for the export market and were operated from aircraft carriers in Dutch and Indian service. The last operational Sea Hawks, operated by the Indian Navy, were retired in 1983. (from Wikipedia)

Great render! One thing I ever found special on the Seahawk was that it had only one turbine, but two exhaust pipes. So the hot exhaust gas where divided in the fuselage and let out on either side of the wing roots. Not to forget, that the Seahawk was the predecessor of the all famous Hawker Hunter - IMHO the most beautiful Jetfighter ever build.
