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 is my friend on this one...

It’s definitely not the Esci directly, as that was one of their earliest 48th moulds and has raised surface detail, as I recall it. Even Revell‘s own mould would have been a better choice.

Have to have a look whether it‘s a more or less refined copy of the Esci.
