  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?

  2. F/A-18C Exterior Set (MD4844 for Hobby Boss) 1:48 Metallic Details The origins of the Hobby Boss Legacy Hornet line of kits date back to 2007, with a few reboxings in various schemes, including the RAAF airframe we reviewed some years ago. Like all kits it could do with some upgrading, which is why Metallic Details have created this new exterior set for us the modellers. It arrives in the by now familiar resealable clear foil bag with card backing, and the two Photo-Etch (PE) frets taped to the card so they don’t rattle round and get damaged. Behind the card ar

  4. Hi all, Does anybody have any experience with this old kit? Has it been re-packaged under another brand, perhaps more recently? I picked it up for about £8 on ebay a couple of months ago, and the detailing is quite poor so I'm looking into buying some aftermarket improvements for it. Thanks in advance
  5. 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
  6. This is a 1/72 Hasegawa Hornet TF-18A that I picked up pretty cheap on ebay. Not too impressed with the general lack of detail and moulding but I think it is an older kit maybe? The kit decals looked like they have been soaked and left to dry, so were cracked and pretty unusable in the main. I managed to rescue the tail codes luckily and had a spare set from a Revell Super Hornet thankfully that made up the rest. Paint is Mig Ammo and the base is yet again a sheet of 2500 grade wet n dry paper mounted on beech block (Kitchen drawer front!), painted to resemble a carrier deck (if you
  7. Hobby Boss is to re-release in late September 2018 its Hornet kit as 1/48th McDD F/A-18C Hornet RAAF kit - ref. 85809 Source: http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=119&l=en V.P.
  8. This is an older figure pulled from my stash and painted last weekend. Uncharacteristically for Hornet this one had quite a bit of pitting in the the metal casting (particularly over the trousers) but that didn't take long to address and it didn't detract from the appeal or the quality of the bare figure. I replaced the kit's metal PPSh with a plastic one from Miniart as the latter was rather more crisply defined - even if it is about 1mm longer overall. The sling is made from paper, and getting it made and attached to appear as though it is bearing the weight of the gun pushed me to my limit
  9. While shifting some piles of kits yesterday, I noticed that Hornet which I „inherited“ some years ago and never had a closer look into. Looking at the sprues, it’s neither their legacy tool nor the Monogram (though Scalemates claims the latter). It is a recessed (softish) panels kit, the surfaces looking „lifeless“ . As the box says Made in Korea, the moulds were likely made by Ace; however, that would in all probability mean a copy. Most if not all of the Ace kits boxed by Revell around that time were „inspired“ by Hasegawa, so how about that Hornet? I admit not having tested if google i
  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. Hiller YH-32 Hornet (48005) 1/48 AMP via Mikromir Hiller Aircraft was one of the early pioneers of rotary winged or Helicopter aviation in the US. The company was formed in 1942 to develop the Hiller XH-44 for the US Army. The company would be renamed Hiller Helicopters in 1948. The YH-32 was an attempt to produce an ultra light helicopter and as such was to do away with a conventional engine. Hiller's solution was to mount two ramjet engines on the tip of the rotor blades. Another benefit from this design was that there was no need for a tail rotor and its associa

  13. Having entered service just too late for WW2, the Hornet featured a similar wooden construction to the Mosquito, and served predominantly with the RAF in the Far East. It saw service during the Malayan campaign, flying with 33, 45, 64 and 80 squadrons, before being withdrawn and retired in 1956. As well as the Far East, the Hornet also equipped three squadrons in the UK, numbers 19, 41 and 65 sqns at Church Fenton, flying firstly in the long range fighter role then converting to ground attack as more Meteors became available. No. 19 sqn operated Hornets from October 1946 until Janu
  14. With your indulgence...another 'golden oldie' dredged up from old Photobucket files. This is the simplified 'easy build' Hobby Boss F/A-18A Hornet, from the 'Blue Angels' boxing...dressed up with the excellent Leading Edge Canadian Hornet 2006 Demo markings. I spruced-up the very basic kit with added LEX fences on the wing roots, and a tail hook and assorted sensors and antennae from rod & strip stock. As a Canadian bird of that era, it also needed the characteristic nose-mounted searchlight, so I drilled a shallow hole and added a disc from clear acetate. The featu
  15. 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
  16. Started building the Cockpit. I used Quickboost seats cause of the great details they provide. Aires aftermarket cockpit would be a great choice, but I didn´t manage to get one. The Hobby Boss details ar not that bad, so I used the kits office..... A few weeks later the Hornet was done. I had some fit issues and in my opinion it is not a beginners kit. I used Revell Aqua Color for painting. For the red outlines on the landing gear doors I use a red Edding pen. Well... worked nice but I will use brush and paint the next time.
  17. Hey Guys hope you like my last few finished models. Academy 1/72 F/A-18C OTB I built the old Revel 1/48 one as a kid and thought it looked cool! STILL DOES Hobby Boss 1/72 SH-60F OTB Built this one over two days a stress relief build. There are a few issues here and there and i didn't spend anytime on making the under fuselage seam look pretty as I very rarely display my models up-side down. Academy 1/72 F/A-18E OTB Interesting kit, a snap together kit with nice decals. Ac
  18. Me two torpedo carrying insects are finally here! First, the Mosquito FB6 The RAF wanted a variant of the Mosquito capable of carrying a torpedo in the interim before the Brigand came into service, despite the Mosquito having less range. As it happened, the war ended and so did the requirement. The Brigands entered service but then the RAF got out of the maritime strike game and they all got rebuilt as bombers. Hasegawa Mosquito FB6 that was gifted to me as a complete build. I removed the nose guns and replaced them with an ASH radar nose and t

  20. Good morning (or afternoon depending on what side of the Atlantic you're on) everyone, This will be my first model, along with my first thread on model making online! There will be many questions, and possibly something worthwhile looking at in the end. I have chosen to make a model based off of my nation's primary multirole fighter. I recently purchased a Canucks Models CF-188 special edition with the Battle of Britain decals. Plans are to order Canada's FIB Decal kit from Canuck models and base the model off of a CF-188 that participated in Operation Mobile.
  21. 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)
  22. Hi all and here's the latest finish from me, Hasegawa's 1/72 F/A-18 Hornet in a Navy Aggressor scheme (VFA-127) pretending to be an Iraqi Mig-29. I built her for a 'Call of Nature' GB (any kit with an animal for a name). The full build thread is here but in summary.

  24. I present to you my second completed model, a 1/48 F/A-18F VFA-154. A few dodgy seam lines as I kind of rushed the assembly to get to the painting stage as I was doing this as a test run for a few hornet projects I want to do. Mr hobby paints were used with a MIG panel line wash and pigments for weathering. Hope you like it.
