CF-188A Hasegawa 1/48

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

This is my first post in this forum. I used the 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18A/C kit in order to turn it into a Canadian CF-188A. As most of the necessary parts are in the box it was not a big deal. The decals ,the sniper pod and the seat are after-market parts.

Wow very very nice. I get to see the real thing when I visit the Canadian Forces bases here at home so it sure looks like something I would see on the tarmac.

 

Just one quick question please. Can you tell me what were the aftermarket products you mentioned? Thanks

 

Cheers

Chris

Nice work, 795 was one of my favourite jets when I was in 416 & 409 Squadrons.

 

I love the weathering, I added to some of the grime on the real jet!

Thank you very much for your replies, I appreciate. As far as I remember I used a TrueDetails SJU-5 seat, I am still no sure if 795 is equipped with this kind of seat or a newer type. The sniper pod is from Eduard. The decals are from Canuck Models, I highly recommend them ,the ACTR pod is from scratch and the missiles from the spares box. The remainder from the box. According to my documentation my model is cleaner than the real thing.

Love the Canadian Hornets and you've done a terrific job on that one. Weathering is superb - who said grey jets are dull!
