VFC-12 "Blue" F/A-18A Hornet in 1/72

Recommended Posts

A teaser:

Another good example for how much those little decals change the whole appearance of a model and make it look more real.

Now it´s only some minor touch-ups, a coat of matt clear and we´re done!

Looks great, another (almost) finished build.

The Hornet is finished and ready to sting!

I have to say that this slick look is something I don´t fancy too much. I usually like aircraft with a big weapon load more... But the camouflage is a real germ!

And a look into the cockpit. Of course an Aggressor-pilot needs a red star on is helmet! ;)

Even in this small scale the instruments and monitors look good:

This is the only part where I have to criticize the Academy kit: The canopy had a seamline on it that I had to sand away. Otherwise the model was a charm to build.

Nice build (and fast too!). Only thing missing (if I may) is a bit (not much) of weathering, especially on the exhaust nozzles.
