Thadeus Posted April 26, 2022 Share Posted April 26, 2022 As my 1/72 Vipers project come to an end, I'm slowly starting my "main" project of Hornet Group Build - Three 1/72 scale Hasegawa Hornets. As with my Viper project, there is going to be one Adversary (of course!), one from the 1991 Gulf war, and one that is a little bit both. So the first one will be the VMFA(aw)-121 from ODS - using old Hasegawa sheet. Hopefully I'll be able to use these decals, if not I'll have to scan them and print a new one, as the decals are yellowed. This is a scheme I've never built, so I'm kind of excited for it. The second Hornet is going to be a single seater from VFC-12 - the boxart jet. I had this one built a couple of years ago (along with the third one, actually), but it got destroyed. There was an idea to build both jets for this GB, but the third one is simply easier for me to build. I know I know, I'm lazy. And the third one - the VFA-127 red 01. This is kind of fun, since most of the adversary/agressor jets, if they carry any national markings other than US, carry red stars. This one has a flag of Iraq. Funny, I don't recall any MiG-29's in Iraq AF markings, that wore similar scheme 😉 So as You can see, its a bit of adversary, a bit of ODS 😉 I am kind of tempted to do this jet later in its career - wearing spanish markings. Or a similarilly painted one, as this one, the C.15-74 crashed in 2009. It would be even easier, as I wouldn't have to match that many colour demarcation lines to the decals. And suddenly, two gray tanks and some gray pylons would "liven up" the scheme... The only thing is, the last one is a bit started - hopefully this is no too much to count in the GB. But if so, I'll complete it anyways along the other two. For a while, that's going to be it from me. There is one more project that I'd like to tackle for this GB, perhaps one more, but I'll refrain from starting too many threads, untill I complete something 😉 Thanks for stopping by!
