Summer's here and I've been away from my bench getting some automotive projects done. Finally had the slushbox on my '75 Hornet rebuilt so I tackled something that always bothered me. The grille from the 75 and later cars. The 73/74 units look m[...]
This is the 1/48 Hasegawa 2 seater hornet. I used Gunze Acrylics and Alclad for paints. eduard p.e. And blackbox for cockpit. Decals were mixed Twobobs and Flying Leathernecks.
