Hello,

This my recent project, OOB. A really easy kit, nice fitting and engineering. The only, and big, complain are the decals. They’re virtually useless, way too thick. So, I put it on hold and waited for a new set from ebay.
Hope you enjoy!

Cheers!

Thank you! That's one  bonus from scale modeling. You end up learning about the subjects.

Very nicely done, great subject and well displayed too. There's something 'Macross-esque' about the Superhornet, particularly the F in Jolly Rogers guise.

Very impressive Super Hornet. Like that a lot! Which boxing was that? I may have the same kit, just so I know wether to get some better quality decals for it.

Academy do make nice kits but I've never had nice decals out of their boxes! Ever, that I can remember!

Thank you! Kit number is Academy 12535 . I strongly suggest aftermarket decals. kit's are terrible.

Terrific Hornet.

Paint job is superb. Top notch weathering to boot. Very realistic.

That is a fine looking build.  I love the look of the Hornet, especially wearing The Bones!!

 

I know what you mean about some of the Academy decals - their own decals are only fit for the bin, I've had them lift from the model after a few days!!!

Academy decals not printed by cartograf are steaming piles of dog crap. 

 

I did this kit as well and it is very nice. Part of academy new line of hybrid snap fits with "MCP" (Multi colored parts). It builds into a very nice kit though. You did a really good job.
