Limited Edition of 1500 Models Worldwide
Developed in the early 1930s from the already proven Hawker Hart light day bomber, the Audax was a dedicated army co-operation version. With this new role in mind, the Audax incorporated a message hook under the fuselage and lengthened exhaust pipes to reduce glare for the crew as they flew close to the ground. Although the aircraft entered service with the RAF in January 1932, the Audax was still to be found flying with the RAF during the early years of the Second World War, mostly in the Middle East. No. 28 Squadron, based in India, was one such Audax unit. Flying from Kohal, the squadron used the Audax for reconnaissance missions and general army co-operation duties before replacing them with Westland Lysanders in 1942.Die-cast metal fuselage

Entering service with the RAF in 1930, the Hawker Hart was possibly the most versatile aircraft of the 'Inter war' period. Designed by Sydney Camm as a two-seat daylight bomber, it spawned several variants including a fighter, seaplane, reconnaissance aircraft, and trainer. The Hart day bomber had a single 525 hp (390 kW) Rolls-Royce Kestrel IB V12 engine; a maximum speed of 185 mph (298 km/h) and a range of 430 miles (692 km).
