1/72 Academy F/A-18D

Recommended Posts

I guess it's about time to do some proper Horneting :)


It's such a nice kit :wub: :wub: :wub:

I'm going to do this one as a VMFA(aw)-121 VK01 BuNo 164026 (picture from dstorm.eu) from Operation Desert Storm. From what I gather, the Green Knights were the first operational unit using the new F/A-18D night attack Hornets. According to dstorm.eu they flew 557 sorties during ODS.


This jet has been on my mind for some time, and I'm glad that I finally have an incentive to build it :) Cheers folks :)

Hi Thadeus! Just saw this build, I will follow with interest! The Desert Storm environment should make it look real mean!

The Academy Hornet is also on my to-do list, I have plenty of Swiss Airforce decals to put on them...

Have fun, Andy
