If you will recal, I am the worlds slowest modeler.

Slow but good, Pete, slow but VERY good!

Looks great to me and even if it´s turns out only half as good as your Viper, then, Sir, we will have one kickass Hornet in the Gallery! :cheers:

Nice to hear THAT, especially, because I´ve never ever seen a real Hornet in my entire life, so my only reference were documentaries and pictures plus the phantastic Daco book! Pete, make me proud, you will build a cool Bug, I´m pretty sure! Keep posting, I am still fascinated from watching the in-progress-shots from that Viperbuild! :) :cheers:

Pig,

You're a lot of things....but I'm afraid I hold that title!!!!!

:)

Seriously though...the Hornet looks KICK-***!! I'm really looking forward to getting back to some modeling soon. Seeing your Hornet (and not to mention the other recent Hornets here at ARC) is really starting to get to me!! :cheers:

Cheers,

Great Pig!! Looks good so far.

I'm honored you are doing a CF-18. If you want any reference stuff just let me know. I'll walk out in the hanger and take some pictures for you.

And of course, you are modeling it after the Finest Fighting CF-18 Squadron in the CF? The fighting 416!!!

The rest suck!!

Pig,

Don't forget the tip weights (usually matte black) on the AIM-7 forward fins.

After viewing some detail photos.....I've come to the conclusion that the tip weights on the Aim-7's used by the 'Balkan Rats' were more of a Stainless Steel finish.

And thanks to Murph for pointing this out....I didn't even realize these existed.

Cheers,

Tilt

Tilt,

The type of tip weight depended on whether it was an AIM-7F or AIM-7M. The 7F weights were generally darker.
