That is one outstanding model! :clap: :clap: Impressive amount of details for the scale :worthy:  Well, for any scale, really :frantic:

 

I think you should post some close up pics of the cockpit interiors, because it looks suitably busy and very detailed from the overall views already, but I bet there's more to see in there.

 

Ciao

Stunning! Outstanding! 

That's a lot of plastic engineering going on there with what is a pretty decent kit to start off with. Must be a nice kit to work with in the first place.

Fantastic work!

There's really nothing more I can add to what's been said!

This is truly scale modelling as art!

My preferred scale, although I can only aspire to be in that league!

👏👏👍👍

Why?  Why must you make all my efforts look like garbage in comparison?  What did I ever do to you?  Seriously, though, that is simply incredible.  Amazingly well done, especially in that scale!

Hi Martin, thank you! Yes, you are right the kit was very good indeed, probably the best currently available in the 72nd scale. So at the beginning I was a bit hesitant when cutting the plastic to fit the resin!

Thank you kapam!, 72nd is my preferred scale too!, there's just something about it that I love very much! (however any now and then I confess to do some 1:48 aircrafts...sorry 🤭)

I am totally speechless! It is really hard to believe that the aircraft is in 1:72 scale. A masterpiece build with great modelling skill.

Congratulations!

Stunning result. 

 

Thank you very much, Serkan Sen and Luis Pacheco! I appreciate your comments, especially after a month since I've posted the model!.

 

Clearly this F/A-18 has become my most precious model to date. I enjoyed every step of the build and is now at a prime spot in my display case! 🙂
