F/A-18F Super Hornet VFA-213

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Joining the party quite late but, believe it or not, I do have "some" shelf queens :rolleyes:

I will be humble and only join with one to give myself a chance to complete it ;) It will be a Hasegawa 1/72 Super Hornet from VFA-213 I began a while ago, see thread here: My link

It will be built in flight.

Here is the current status after two years on the shelf:

Hi Arnaud, those intakes of Yours look awesome. Which scheme are You going to finish Your Bug in?

Thanks Thadeus. This one will be in VFA-213 Black Lions CAG markings (dark blue, not the fancy light blue ;)

Some progress to report ;) I'm really glad I joined the GB!

The intakes are completed and painted, always a bit tricky...

The guts of the beast are done. I built the usual rig inside to support the rod for in-flight configuration.

Hello,

Some progress has been done on this one, the queen is struggling to get it out of the shelf :)

Scratch-built ACS. Not exceptional but sufficient for a closed canopy!

Ready to close the canopy...

And closed with some masking started

The canopy is not as smooth as I'd like but if I took more time on it I would never finish :(

Cheers,

Arnaud
