Gosh this one has come up already!!!! Ok This is actually a double build for me, one aircraft but for 2 builds, this one “in the Navy” and for my own SIG VF-31 Tomcatters builds. So the model is Hasegawa’s 1/48th F/A-18E model. It looks to be quite an impressive model and by all accounts a nice one to build…..not that I trust reviewers at all!!! She’ll sort of be OOB build but with just a few essentials, a new cockpit as the kit one is a bit basic...... ….some replacement exhausts with much better detailing, and new wheels for the same reason…... ….and finally, as the actually aircraft is covered with all sorts of grills and meshes some super fine new ones. These meshes from A.M.U.R. Reaver are super fine and incredibly thin so will be interested to see how they go as I have a couple of sets for my F-14A. And finally, the scheme, as mentioned she be done as a CAG aircraft from VFA-31 Tomcatters. This will be the 2nd aircraft in my Tomcatters collection (in the queue are an F-14A, F-4J, F-4B, F3H-2M Demon, F2H-3 Banshee (waiting for this one to be released), and F9F-2 Panther…..for now but another F-14D may show up, all in 1/48th). As time and appropriate GB’s come along I’ll gradually start building them. Not a 100% straightforward build but it should me a smooth one with luck. The real work will be getting the paint work right, they're not quite as dirty as the F-14's (?) but I still will need to get the patchy finish right. But first i have to finish my Combat boat first before I'll start this one, plus I don’t have another GB then until June, so with luck she’ll be done by then.
Hi to all. I propose to you the first shots of the Super Hornet F / A 18E Trumpeter kit 1:32 At the moment I'm focused on cockpit and ejector seat. All parties were detailed with Eduard photoetched purchased from. In the central panel I put a thin piece of film to create shiny glass clocks.
