  1. Be patient, still uploading more pic's. ----------------
    O.K.. that's it finished !

  2. Excellent job as always and a really great result, Allan! Love the scheme, perfectly done!

  3. Very nice looking Hornet, Allan @kalamazoo
    The tiger scheme came out perfectly.
    You also came up with a nice way to make sure the angle of the tail is correct.

  4. Nice colorful Hornet, Allan. I forgot Fujimi did F-18s.

  5. Great-looking Hornet - love that tiger-back scheme. Well done.

  6. Perfect timing Allan, as I just brought down this very same kit to start on with finishing up the F-16. Your work is a great motivator and also what to look forward to some of it's issues. Mine will be in USMC livery. Thanks for sharing.

  7. G’day Allan (@kalamazoo),
    Beautifully done.
    I particularly appreciate the attention to detail, such as the port stabiliser upside down on the starboard side.
    I have the same decals in 1/48 to do one day.

  8. Nicely done Allan!
