Academy 1:72 F/A-18C Hornet

A small-scale project, finally wrapped up!


Morning everyone – I hope that you are enjoying the snow!
As the year draws to a close I’m wrapping up some projects for work, the first being one of two F-18 Hornets that I’m dealing the with. This is one is my interpretation of the Academy 1:72 F/A-18C that I’ve upgraded with a superdetailed cockpit, resin seat, jetpipes and wings, all of which add to the candid look of the model – I think! The model was painted with Gunze Mr. Color lacquers and then weathered with oils and Humbrol enamels, all decals coming from the kit. The final additions were a couple of missiles from a Tamiya F-16…
I’ve tried to make what is a pretty bland scheme as interesting as possible and I’m now happy to move on to what will be a different and far cleaner scheme for my 1:48 build…
I hope you like it and stay warm! 🙂
