1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18C VFA-151 Vigilantes

September 11, 2017 · in Aviation · · 31 · 3.2K

This is my latest build, Legacy . For this project I used Eduard PE for the cockpit, twobobs decal, MAW resin for the exhaust, Gunze acrylics paint and Alclad for the exhaust. It was an enjoyable build all throughout.

  1. Excellent work right there, Eric...I can only see (or rather, NOT see) only one thing "wrong" - you didn't give us more pics to look at. 🙂

  2. Excellent finish and looks great.

  3. Looks great and agree with Craig

  4. A VERY NICE looking F 18. Well done!

  5. Very nice also the presentation on deck!

  6. Welcome onboard, Eric, and congratulations to a commendable first entry. Your surface weathering seems to be first-class, I really like the subtlety of it. Thanks for sharing

  7. Hello Eric,
    Very impressive with five fuel storage tanks under the belly and wings.

  8. Thanks Dirk. The CAG was ferrying 2 "dry" fuel tanks to a nearby base thus the 5 fuel tanks.

  9. Great looking model! I echo the desire to see more pics...

  10. I added more pictures. Thanks

  11. Thanks for the additional photos, Eric...I still say that is one beautiful looking Hornet you've built there. I like that a lot!

  12. Nice Hornet! Great touch on the intake/ exhaust covers. Welcome sir!

  13. More pics! Very nice build!

  14. Beautiful Hornet, Eric. Beautiful scheme thos Vigilaties use. I especially like the colors - black & gold have always looked great to me. And the yellow around the canopy is excellent.
