Notes:
-


Known issues:
The AAF Mohawk is quite a close fit to the Merlin HC3. Certain parts of the air-frame are mirrored from the port to starboard sides, resulting in reversed decals if not careful with placement. We have made a few small compromises in order to get around this issue, such as leaving out the "Royal Air Force" writing on the tail boom and re-positioning of the aircraft serial numbers.
