  2. Hi Folks This is my recently completed 1/48 Kinetic Hornet. It represents A21-7 as she was circa 2006 with 77 Squadron and finally gave me a chance to use my Afterburner Decals Hornet sheet. I added some extra goodies into this project. Resin Seat, Resin wheels (Nose-AMS resin , Main - Attack Squadron), Resin burner cans (Attack Squadron). AIM-132 ASRAAM from Airfix spares, Litening Pod from Tamiya spares and scratch modified TACTS pod. Eduard etch set in the cockpit abd some epoxy putty intake FOD bungs. Paints used were MRP and SMS Lacquers. Happily for me this model was awarded First place (1/48 Aircraft - Jet - Modified) and also Best Kinetic Model at Australian Model Expo 2019. I hope you like her. Cheers Andrew P.
  3. Hello, I am new to this forum but not to website I've always admired everyone's work in amazement. I've always enjoyed model building as a child but through frustration and lack of patience I ended up giving it up and dreadfully missing it. Well almost 10 years later I am back and attempting my 1st build a 1/32 Academy F/A-18C Hornet. I need help finding anyone that makes or may sell aftermarket decals for USMC aircraft in 1/32 scale. I am not sure if this was discussed before but I really do need help. I need decals for VMFA-251 F/A-18C buno. 164871 stationed on the USS Theodore Roosevelt. Exactly like in the picture. Any and all help will be appreciated, Thank You Alvin

  6. She was not only the first Hornet pilot in the FinAF, but also the highest ranking female officer in our armed forces. Now she's the commander of the Fighter Squadron 31, known for its famous lynx emblem that once sported the tails of MiG-21bis. Way to go, Inka! https://yle.fi/uutiset/osasto/news/finnish_air_force_names_first_woman_as_fighter_squadron_commander/10519022
  7. Hi everyone! Back again after taking another break from building for awhile... So here is my latest completed project, the 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18C Hornet in VFA-86 Sidewinders CAG markings circa 2006. I was drawn to the large orange diamond on the spine, much like the old A-7s of the same squadron in the late 70s, so I knew I had to build my first Legacy Hornet in those markings. Soon I will build a Corsair in the same "diamond spine" style markings. The decals I used are from Afterburner Decals "Snakes on a Plane" sheet. These performed flawlessly like usual. The kit itself is really nice, great detail and fit was quite good other than the intakes. That was a bit of a struggle there to align. The biggest issue I encountered with this build was self inflicted, however. A couple of weeks ago I had a long weekend off, and I decided I was going to try to finish the build that weekend, despite having a considerable amount of things to do. So I decided to skip the future coat step before decals, which I have never done before. Well, the decals went down ok (I did get some silvering I never get however), but the big issue was the wash. Man, it was a MAJOR pain to get that off, even with turpenoid. So I learned a lesson, I will not skip that step ever again! As far as aftermarket, I threw in a Quickboost seat and Aires closed nozzles. GBU-16s are from Hasegawa weapons set D, and AIM-9Xs are from the Tamiya F-16C Aggressor kit. Now that I have built a Hasegawa Hornet, I will be interested to see how the Kinetic one compares. Kit: 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18C Hornet "Golden Dragons" boxing Decals: Afterburner Decals "Snakes on a Plane" Aftermarket: Aires Closed Exhaust Nozzles, Quickboost Ejection Seat, Hasegawa Weapons Set D Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Gunze Aqueous FS 33613 Radome Tan, FS 36375 Light Ghost Gray, FS 36320 Dark Ghost Gray, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Green, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, and Burnt Iron. Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. Now on to the pics, I hope you like!

  10. Hey guys, Looking through some Pictures for an upcoming build, I've noticed some kind of antenna just behind the canopy on Canadian CF-188 Hornets. Could anyone enlighten me on what this is for? If anyone has measurements on it, it would be even better! :) Antenna 1 Antenna 2 On the above photos, it is the round disc behind the canopy. TIA!
  11. Hey guys, I'm looking for the Academy 1/72 scale F/A-18D Hornet, kit #12422. Has anyone out there got a kit or two for sale at a reasonable price?
