1/144 Christmas Ornament 2019

December 28, 2019 · in Aviation · · 4 Comments

Every year I build a 1/144 ornament for my wife. Its one way that she can be involved in the hobby, and she allows one of my interests to be part of our tree each year. I built a kit and used a set of 1/144 Arrow Graphics decals for it. I was able to set up a dual sidewinder mount and used spare sidewinders and sparrows from some 1/144 F-18's I am building as Blue Angel aircraft. I was also able to scrounge up two more drop tanks for this build.

Maybe not an actual load out, but I like the idea of a Canadian hornet loaded for bear.

  1. Nice ornament Dan, looks good, I'll keep an eye out for the angels !

    • Thanks! I will see about posting them. I built and hung a 1/200 Fat Albert, and found a little 1/200 prepainted Blue Angel F-18 kit- I will have to take a picture of those and send them to you.
