1/72 Academy F/A-18E VFA-143

October 3, 2017 in Aviation

This is the 1/72 Academy F/A-18E Superhornet depicting the CAG Aircraft of VFA-143 “The World Famous Pukin Dogs” from 2008. The model was built completely OOB using the kit decals which were excellent. Painted with MRP paints (Gunze Mr Color for the tail and weathered with oils. The kit was very nice and does provide full intake trunking which I though was nice.

  2. Hello Geoffrey,
    Nice build, the blue fins makes it complete.
    Interesting to note on the underside, how sturdy the landing gear is.
