Here is my F-18 from VFC13. I first
started with the 1/48 Hasegawa F-18 kit. Then I added the Black Box
resin cockpit set
For the markings I used decals
from TwoBobs. I ended up getting
the decals from different sheets. I
started with the "Desert Bogey" sheet, but added the markings for
knows the fit problems with the Hasegawa kit and I've nothing else to say
about that. The Black Box cockpit is a must, the seat is perfect and
really gives a great appearance to the model !
Well, I'm a Navy fan, but I must confess to
being a bit bored with all the grey planes. When Twobobs released
their first sheet about the F18, I jumped on it! After a few months, I
decided to start the project, but at the same time I saw in a magazine a
picture of a VFC13 Hornet, with a false canopy underside, painted in
black......this is what I decided to build.

The Camo :
As always I used Tesors paints, 2110 (Italian
sand) and 2111 (Italian Dark brown). The grey areas were painted after
all. I made the masking for the false canopy and the other area paint
A black line marks the separation between grey /
I've added a grey ventral tank......touch of
colour you say?
For my next projects...I'm still looking
for a special A4; maybe a two seater..... an F21 and the latest F14 just
coming off the Twobobs workbench!!!
Well, I've got to thank Twobobs
for giving us the opportunity to have colorful planes like this one....and I
have to say that it attracted all the attention at a model show.
Have a great modelling time all !
