  1. Hello Juan. These additional photos should help you: What I did: Also:
  2. There are good photos of the antenna on page 166 of "The Modern Hornet Guide," by Jake Melampy. Hasegawa part M5 has the correct shape.
  3. Like I said, part M5 (AN/ALQ-126 mounted on drag brace door). Also included on Sprue M are the chaff/flare dispensers, GPS dome for the spine, IFF antennae, and new centerline pylon.
  4. Larry, That nose gear door antenna will be found only in later Hasegawa Hornet kits containing sprue M. It is part M5.
  5. Fuselage stiffeners were also removed. I added them back with sheet styrene as well as added the vertical tail stiffeners too. Also rescribed the exhaust shrouds.
  6. True. Plus a visit from Moai Vincent would be excellent.
  7. Yes, James (TomcatFanatic123) passed away early Saturday morning. I received a text from his mom.
  8. That's the underside of the airbrake which you're seeing along the left wing. :)
  9. Yes no HUD, actually gunsight, but the TA-4 the Blues had still had the gunsight. It can be seen in the videos.
  10. Hodor.
  11. If referring to my comment, I meant the revised Monogram F/A-18C kit which I thought Monogram had corrected in the early 1990s. It does not have the rounded off tails though, which the original (undersized) 1980s release did have. LOL
  12. Kinetic also left out the intake splitter brace... Hasegawa instructions (part K28): Kinetic:
  13. Ah, 30 years ago. My how time flies...
