Revell 48th scale F-18 Navy Centennial

March 5, 2015 in Aviation

I started with the ‘old’ boxing of the Revell “Blue Angels” version of the Hornet and using a rattle can (what else?) of Model Master Dark Sea Blue, transformed it into a version of the Centennial celebration of Naval aviation. The base is simply an old wooden shelf painted gray with some pin-striping tape applied. Thanks to Jim Sullivan for the decals and the round peel-off sticker. Actually, thanks to Jim for model come to think of it! 🙂

  1. Nice build mate! I haven’t seen one in these colours before, looks cool!
    The F18 is definitely on the large list of kits I need to build!

  2. Hello Craig…That Hornet turned out nice. It looks good in that dark sea blue paint and that international orange fuselage band really makes it stand out. Good job on the build and thanks for sharing it with us.

  3. Now that’s quite a looker there Craig. I am liking the dark paint on this.
    Really nice,
    California Steve

  8. Very nice build, different paint scheme looks fine!

  9. Looks terrific Craig. Looking on the net for walk around pictures, I found photos of the same aircraft; what a change from boring old grey! You’ve captured it beautifully!
