  1. So this is my first post in my first group build with my first kit for 15 years. I’m modelling the Academy FA-18E VFA-143 “Pukin Dogs” with the Eduard detail set. Made an ambitious start chopping the undercarriage wells about… …and moving the rudders. Sorry about the poor quality snaps. Wish me luck. See you all later.
  2. Got a present from the postman this morning......a lovely big box: For those that have built this before.....any tips or things to watch out for?
  3. Another 1/48 jet, this time a Revell F-18/E depicted in the colours of VFA-14 Top Hatters. Built entirely out of the box except for the PJ Productions resing pilot figure. paints are acrylic MIG USAF greys. A pretty easy kit to build with no major moments, apart from not quite getting the undercarriage legs level Base is a Hobbycraft wood painting panel, airbrushed with biro lines and with a bit of added lawn. Please excuse photos, taken on mobile phone. Comments always welcome, good bad or indifferent
  4. Hi, this my new finished kit. This is really good F-18E from Academy in 1/72 scale. I added one of the Eduard's GBU-12 bombs. Painted with Tamiya and Gunze H.
  5. ECS Pipes for Trumpeter F-18E Quickboost 1:32 These two sets provide replacement ECS Pipes for the already magnificent Trumpeter 1:32 F-18E Super Hornet. Coming in two flavours, either early or late two pipe assemblies are contained in each package. The kits pipe structures will need to be carefully removed before these items can drop in the resulting holes. Whilst each item has a small resin moulding block this may not even need to be removed to fit although it wouldn’t take too much to saw and/or file it off. The mouldings of each part are very nicely done and very clean with no other sign of flash or imperfections within the grey resin. Conclusion These are an interesting addition for the big Super Hornets and while they are all very well done, with well defined detail, the general modeller may not feel the need for them. But then it you’re an absolute detail freak then these will be a must. I can see the early ones being of more use as they are completely different to the kit items.
