1/72 Academy F/A-18A RAAF Hornet

April 13, 2021 · in Uncategorized · · 9 · 2.5K

Hi Everyone

Finished this one that has been sitting around for sometime...

It is OOB bar the decals which are from Ronin Decals and features a 77 Squadron RAAF Hornet from Operation Okra 2017. Loadout not 100% accurate as only had kit parts to play with, RAAF Hornets normally carry ASRAAM short range missiles and this kit only comes with sidewinders so decided to leave off rather than add them.

Paints are Tamiya, Mr Hobby & Alclad.

All up a nice little kit and enjoyed the build as change of subject for me at least.

Happy Modelling
