1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18D. VMFA(AW)-225 Vikings.


Recommended Posts

Its been a while since I have built something because I am back to work but I was finally able to finish this.  The kit is pretty much an out of the box build.  Weapons and pods are from the Hasegawa weapons set B. the pilots are from PJ productions and a spare from a Tamiya kit. Decals are from Model Maker. Not my best work but not my worse.  I have seen many of these aircraft in flight on various training and real world operations.  As a Marine on the ground it is always comforting to know that Marine Air has our back. 

Semper Fi and thanks for looking!

The stand is made up of a few things, the clear riser is from "wings of the great war" riser set which I ordered from amazon in the US.  the sea blurr effect is from coastal kits and the wood is from a local hobby store

Superb work, not often one sees some USMC aircraft. Great display, in flight models have a powerful look to them, great to see this.
