Kinetic 1/48 F/a-18C

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I just started building this Kinetic F/A-18C kit.

As a beginning, I decide to build a pilot without oxygen mask and add some details.

 

To fit the cockpit, pilot feet have to be removed.

Oxygen hose and earphone cable are scratch built

OUTSTANDING work all around !! It's finally refreshing to see someone paint their AIM-9's the correct color and not black. I'm very impressed you added the arming wires for the nose / tails fuses on that GBU-12 as well, nice touch. Keep up the amazing work, looking forward to more.

Those weapons look as if they've been miniaturised from the real thing.

You've nailed the colour for the sidewinder seeker head. Nice work all round

WOW, is that a decal of a dragon on the back of his helmet or, did you hand paint that ?? Awesome works so far.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as well.

those ordinances are simply amazing! (and those AIM-9  are nearly unbelievably nicely detailled... are those the kit's missiles??? really? because they look as sharp as Eduard's Brassin parts!!!)
