1/48 Hasegawa VFC-13 F/A-18A '007'

Recommended Posts

I've always like the Adversary/Aggressor aircraft but to date have not been able to complete one.  I recently got my hands on a Hasegawa legacy Hornet and thought I'd give it another go.  I will be building this bird from Fightertown's Desert Bogeys sheet

The "007" number was to hard to resist.  

 

 I other than the decals, this will be mostly OOB.  

 

Construction started with the cockpit.

MFD decals are from the Afterburner Super Hornet Upgrade Sheet.  I figured they where close enough to use on a legacy.  

 

Cockpit tub was painted and knobs picked out with red and gray

Pilot and ejection seat.  I almost always have pilots. He's  from the kit, with a head from the spares box for the more modern helmet.  The red stars are from the decal sheet.  I noticed the seams that I need to clean up when I looked at these pics.  Hard to see but harness was added from an old Photo-etched sheet I found.

That's all for now...

Well I got some paint on this bird.  I attempted to free hand the camo, probably should stick to rolled putty :hmmm:Painted with Vallejo Model Air Colors and Tamiya Paints.
