I can't remember when it was exactly, but Hawkwing was up for sale a while back.  It looked very impressive - very weather worn, and as these models always seem to be in real life, surprisingly large.  It didn't sell though - I suppose it might do now...Hmm, so saying I see Hudson's only a foot or so long.  I wonder how many Hudsons they actually made, given his tendency to colour change?  I'm sure some of it was effects, of course, but I'm just wondering if this is the "default" Hudson.  The description's a bit off as well - it isn't Hudson's Rolls Royce, Hudson IS the Rolls Royce!Third edit - heh, some funny stuff in the same auction. Check out the CHIPs helmet!http://search.liveauctions.ebay.com/search....id=1791

What was the starting bid on the Hawkwing? I would have LOVED to own one of those!

Severl hundred pounds, I think. It reappeared after it didn't sell at a much lower price, but it was still pretty steep and probably just didn't have the draw that something from the better known Anderson series would have had. If your budget doesn't stretch to owning a real prop, there were toys released which come up on eBay from time to time - I owned some of them way back and they're pretty good!

Oh yeah, I had the toy Hawkwing along with a Zero and a Spacehawk, but owning THE Hawkwing would be something else

Well, Hudson went up to £420 but the reserve wasn't met so I don't know if someone actually walked away with him or not... The estimate was almost double that...
