I bought this as a quick build, mojo restorer. It didn't work out exactly as I had hoped. But I did have fun, and that's what counts, right?

 

WIP here-

Great result from the R-M kit. The decals must have caused a few hair-pulling moments 😂

 

Very nice engine covers...what did you use to make those?

Thanks all, for the positive comments. The decals were simultaneously exhilarating and exhausting. At one point, after a MARATHON 4+ hour decal session, I was literally cross-eyed. No hyperbole or exaggeration, I couldn't focus my eyes for almost an hour.

 

Even though it's still a 20 footer, I dig it.

I used thick tissue paper (like the kind you get with new trainers) soaked in modge podge, then shaped into place. A small slice of sprue holds the RBF, and I sprayed Tamiya X-7 Red with some handbrushed highlights. First time and pretty easy. Also my first time to make use of the Eduard RBF that I have stacks of, from every Big-ed set I've ever purchased, Who knew?

Absolutely spectacular!

 

And that nose gear looks very convincing.

 

Kind regards,

That is a great looking Hornet.

 

I’ve got those decals myself as well as the Syhart ‘100 years of Naval Aviation’ set, so I guess I’ll know how you felt when I get around to using them. 

 

This model is tempting me to make that soon, maybe I could do both together 🤪
