  1. Revell is to release in November 2016 a new tool 1/32nd Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet kit - ref.04994 What's wrong with the Trumpeter's 1/32nd Super Hornet? Followed or not in 2017-2018 by two seats 1/32nd Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler? Source: http://www.plastik-modellbau.org/blog/revell-neuheiten-2016/2016/ V.P.
  2. Good day all, I hope you are all healthy and safe.. I have a quick question for those who might know. I want to build a 1/32 F/A-18F but can only get hold of the Trumpeter Growler in 1/32. I believe that it is not quite 100% accurate as a Growler which should work in my favor if I wanted to make an F from it. I do have decals. Can someone please tell me if there are there any specific things that needs to be corrected/changed on the Trumpeter Growler that is not already "F ready" I am particularly interested to know if the Growler kit also includes the correct rear F mo
  3. In 2020 Kovozávody Prostějov (KP) is to rebox the 1/72nd Italeri MCDD F/A18 Hornet kits.

  4. F/A-18 Hornet | 1/72 | Testors United States Navy -- VFA-25 Finished this on May 24th, 2019. This is a build that had sat 90% finished for 20 years. The full story is in my WIP. This is a model that my best friend gave me in college, having started it himself when he was 10. It happened to be a prior boxing of a model I made in High School. I almost finished it, but then put it aside and it sat for 20 years. Through some luck I found the decals to match my high school build. I built this concurrently with a Hasagawa 1/72 Hornet which I marked as a Canadian CF-188.
  5. F/A-18 Super Hornet (04994) 1:32 Revell The Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet is the second generation F/A-18 following on the the F/A-18C. The F/A-18E was developed from the original Hornet and while it may look alike its very much a new aircraft which is 25% bigger. The US Navy managed to keep the F/A-18 designation partly to make the US Congress believe it would be a low risk development from the original aircraft (not the first time in US Aviation this has happened). The new aircraft was ordered in 1992 with a first flight in 1995. The aircraft introduced a new era
  6. Hi friends, Here is another rehabilitation build of an old and broken model... Several years ago I got two built and incomplete Hornets from eBay to use them as donors. But they were forgotten in basement for a long time until last month I have found them again during clean out action. As I was planning to build one of the VMFA(AW)-224 F/A-18D with the attractive tiger strips since long time, I have decided to restore the twin seater one as BuNo:164878. In parallel I am building a F-15C with black tiger strips which is very close to RFI.
  7. This is my 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18 depicting one of VFC-12's well known splinter jets. My first and probably only build for the year.. I used Furball decals, an AIM-9 from a Kinetic kit, the seeker head cover was made with a cotton bud and some plasticard and the AN/ALQ-167 is from Wolfpack, generously donated by @Stephen - once again, thank you! The seat is from the kit, made a bit busier by adding belts made from foil off a wine bottle. Paints used were Tamiya and Mr.Hobby Aqueous for the main scheme and Mr.Hobby buffables for the metalwork. Weathering is a m
  8. I'm pretty excited about this next build because it's been in the making for 19 years. Bear with me... there's a little bit of story here. When I was 16, I got a Testor's F/A-18C for Christmas. I did the best job I could with the skills I had and was pretty proud of it. In college, my best friend gave me an earlier boxing of the same kit because he didn't have the patience to do it (he started it though...). A few years later I built it, but didn't finish it and it's been "mostly finished" for 19 years. So, why didn't I finish it? W
  9. Hi Folks, Seems ages since I last posted....getting distracted with Facebook modelling sites I suppose. Here's my latest offering for what it's worth. A CAG super Hornet from Revell, OOB apart from a stick-on cockpit kit, and a Pavla canopy, as the original one was missing, built open as it didn't fit exactly. Nice build apart from the engine intakes. The large decals were difficult to bed down even with loads of microsol. .....and I've just noticed I left part of the ladder assembly off !! Constructive criticism welcome please
  10. Hello Folks, This is the quite old Hasegawa kit but still a good one. I added an Aires cockpit, Tamiya Sidewinder and Hi Decals product. The flaps were simply cut from the wings and the forward flap part made in plastic card. The ladder is from scratch too. Hope you like it. Cheers
  11. Hello, This is the Academy F/A-18A+ converted into a spanish EF-18A (Modernized). The only after-market part is the decals. The kit is really very good, better than the old Hasegawa. The camouflage is a bit odd, definitely not the regular Spanish Air force one, probably applied during a maintenance work. Cheers
  12. Academy is to release a - new tool or (most probably) Italeri kit rebox ? - 1/48th Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet - ref. 12316 This ref. number was not announced in the catalogue 2017: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235014703-academy-catalogue-2017-programme-newsletter-1q-2017/ Source: https://tieba.baidu.com/p/5169820785 V.P.
  13. Long time no see Britmodeller, but I have not been resting on my laurels. Here's the Academy 1/72 Hornet from the 1986 Libya strike. At least I hope it is. Markings come from one of the Aeromaster Stinging Hornets set and has aircraft 203 from VFA-132 Privateers. I'm not sure if this particular aircraft flew in the strike (I know 200 did) but I will assume that it did. The aircraft is armed with a pair of AGM-88 HARM missiles as in real life, with accompanying AIM-9s and AIM-7s. The aircraft is painted using Gunze colors in the original Hornet colors of Light Ghost Gray (FS 36375)
  14. The kit is intended to simulate louvres and meshes on aircraft models F/A-18C/D (Late) in 1/48 scale produced by Hasegawa and Hobbyboss. Made of steel with a thickness of 0.05 mm.
  15. The kit is intended to simulate louvres and meshes on aircraft models F/A-18A/B and Early C/D in 1/48 scale produced by Hasegawa and Hobbyboss. Made of steel with a thickness of 0.05 mm.

  17. I gather there are a few people on BM who appreciate Egg Planes, and some who don't ... this in an RFI for those who do ... First up ... Bell Boeing MV-22 Osprey - 168238 / EG-00, VMM-263 "Thunder Chickens", USMC - Hasegawa Eggplane - OOB with additional home-made decals, brushed acrylics. Lockheed Martin F-16C Block 30 Fighting Falcon. Aircraft flown by Col. Dennis Swanstrom, Wing Commander 185th Fighter Wing, 174th Fighter Squadron "The Bats", #85565, Iowa Air National Guard. Hasegawa Egg Plane, home-made decals, Humbrol acrylic spray. McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18C Hornet -
  18. F/A-18A 162826, formally VFA-195, VX-5 & VX-9. Latterly with the US Navy Blue Angles as Blue 3. Pics taken at the Fort Worth Aviation Museum, Texas. Pics thanks to Nigel Heath.
  19. F/A-18C Hornet Swiss Air Force 1:48 Revell The F/A-18 Hornet was developed by McDonnell Douglas and Northrop from Northrop's YF-17 prototype in the 1970's for use by the US Navy and marine Corps as a carrier capable multirole fighter jet. Northrop's YF-17 was initially a design for the US Air Force and McDonnell Douglas were brought in to make it carrier capable following their success with the F-4 Phantom. In the late 1980's Switzerland after evaluation decided the F/A-18 was the aircraft to equip its Air Force. The aircraft was designed for carrier operations so it was felt a good f

  21. F/A-18 Hornet Mackit 1:100 scale Here's a wacky idea: a metal die-cast with plastic appendages sold as an unpainted kit. I bought this kit on special in 2004. Plus points: The completed model has the "heft" of a die-cast. The decal sheet includes options for US, Swiss and Australian aircraft. Plenty of plastic underwing stores are included, but no instructions as to which are appropriate for which nationality. Negative points: Stand model: no undercarriage is provided, nor are gear doors even marked on the fuselage. Parts fit is not good. In the absence of a grinding or milling machine
  22. F/A-18F Super Hornet ‘VFA-32 Swordsmen’ 1:72 Hasegawa Developed from the successful f-18 earlier derivatives, the single seat ‘E’ and two seat ‘F’ versions are despite looking very similar, quite different aircraft. Primarily designed to replace the Tomcat as a multi-role fighter, the E/F models have in fact replaced the F-14, A-6 Intruder, S-3 Viking with the G model replacing the EA-6B Prowler. Having such a simplified line up brings about obvious benefits for a fleet that has to be maintained whilst at sea. The ‘Super’ Hornet is about 20% larger than the original Hornet, nearly 7 tons
