1/72 Worimi Hornet – Academy + Ronin Decals
March 23, 2017 in Aviation
The Worimi hornet is complete. This model represents A21-23 that was dressed in Worimi group traditional artwork and colours to celebrate the service of indigenous people within the Australian Defence Force during 2016. The aircraft is adorned with the name of Warrant Officer Len Waters who was Australia’s first known indigenous pilot who flew during the World War Two campaign. The excellent decals are by Ronin Graphics Australia and I can’t speak highly enough for them. Although thin and delicate to handle, they were quite robust even with Mr Mark Softer setting solution. The kit is the vanilla version of the 1/72 Academy F/A-18A+ ‘Red Devils’. It’s probably the best kit in this scale to represent a RAAF machine. Big thanks to Bruce Anders for the decals and friend Paul for coming to town with the kit. Paints are all Gunze with AK weathering products and oils used for the final touches. Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed building it.
