The sting of the Hornet

Academy 1/72 F/A-18C​

Although this Academy kit is 10+ years old (2008) it's  still a very nice kit and I enjoyed every bit of it. I had to fill some minor gaps/seems and in general the build went pretty well.

Paintjob was done using Tamiya acrylics, Ak Interactive washes, Vallejo acrylics, water color pencils & pigments from different brands. Decals are from Microscale.

The 2 "splendid"  little figs in this vignette are from Reedoak. The AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles are from Eduard and the towbar is from Brengun and the red remove before flight tags are metal ones from Eduard.

The flight-deck was made from polystyrene, Brengun PE tie-down points, small plastic tape and a base coat of Games-Workshop Roughcoat from the can finished with acrylics and pigments.
