1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18E VFA-143 inflight

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

 

I present to you a VFA-143 inflight display from the 2006/2007 cruise. Aftermarket bits used were fightertown decals, aires ejection seat, two mikes seamless intakes and attack squadron GBU-38's. Had a bit of difficulty strapping the pilot into the seat using the PE but I'm pleased with how it turned out. Painted using Mr Hobby and Tamiya paint and weathered with oils and powders.

 

Will take some better photos when the sun is out!

Nice build, you can't beat an F-18 in the CAS stack.

I really like the way you finished your model and how you've displayed it on the stand. How did you do the image on the base?

David

Thanks!

 

The image is on photo paper and I used double sided adhesive that I put down first and laid the image over it. I hope this helps!
