1/32nd CF-18M

Recommended Posts

I had been working on this CF-18M for almost 2 years (of and on). I think it is finally finished. I have loaded this Hornet with the same loadout that was used after 9-11 when they were holding "Q" at 19 Wing Comox.

Enjoy!

A few more. I used BB set with GPS, IFR and Cutting Edge cockpit ( a kit in itself!).

I did misplace the port side slat and I have not been able to get a hold of Academy get replacment parts. They seem very bad for this. I may have to make my own slat?

That's a beautiful build, Derek. I don't know what else to say other than well done. I'd like to do a Q bird with the same load, only in 48th.

Beautiful work.

Cheers,

Sean

THanks for the kind words. The IFR (In Flight Refueling) Probe is from the Black Box set that also includes burner cans, GPS dome and other goodies.

As requested, here is one of the cockpit. I did take photos of this build in progress. Maybe I will add a few more. From start to finish. Anyone interested?

You are showing some truly stellar work here Hazer. Yes, definitely share more pics.

Stupid question........what's a CF-18M? I'm only aware of the A and B.

It is a CF-18A that has gone throught the ECM 583 Avionics upgrade.

No Bs are getting the upgrade.

Nice work Hazer. It is nice to see a model of a F-18 from the best Hornet Squadron in the World!!

795 is my favourite jet.

Scooby - does that include the bird slicer antennae? I think I saw B's on Hazer's site with them.

Thanks

Actually, I do have photos of one CF-18BM? From 425 Sqn (188927) that was taken at MF last year. Not sure if there are any other B going through upgrade.

More photos later tonight.

Hey, Scooby! I knew you would like the Lynx on this model. I was able to get some great shots of 795 while I was MF 2004 so I used that as my reference..it also flew Q at Comox.

Here are a few in progress pics.
