Hasegawa 1:48 F/A-18C

Recommended Posts

My latest hornet build; hasegawa kit with the "Lords and Angels" Desert Storm decal sheet. Unfortunately, I wasn't happy to find a good number of the decals where inaccurately represented. Some of the corrections done were the font of the tail code, angle of the italic text on the fuselage spine (didn't care enough to fix fuel tank text), etc..

Looks great! Where did you get the pilot from?


The pilot figure is your standard Hasegawa pilot figure plus the HGU-55 helmet from their F-16 kits. The helmet was puttied and painted "chocolate-chip" pattern to look like there is cloth on it.

thanks for the compliments everyone.

Lovely job Sir!

Did you use any aftermarket items or had any fit issues with the build?

Kind regards, Sven.

Yes, the Hasegawa hornet has some fit issues, like the engines intakes but nothing putty can't fix.

As for aftermarket, the seat is a BlackBox seat, and the exhausts are from Aires. I wanted my jet to look like it's powered and about to taxi so I gave it open nozzles.
