Full Scale Clay Model

To design the modern Hawk, a 2D sketch is great for direction, but when it comes to the details a 3D mockup is important for refinement. The dream starts with a sketch, and in a freeform medium like pencil and paper, anything can happen. When you get to a full scale clay model, ergonomics are important for the rider. Packaging mechanical components and creating every part to be integral in the system is the goal.
