Here is my Hasegawa’s 1/48 scale F/A-18D Hornet. It won second place in the Aircraft Jet-Fighter/Recon 1/48 category at the South Carolina Modeler’s Association Charleston Model Contest.

The kit was pretty much built straight out of the box. 

The only thing used that didn’t come with the kit minus the weapons was the photo-etched mirrors from a Monogram A-18 High Tech kit. The weapons of coarse are from the various Hasegawa weapons kits. She is armed with AGM-84E SLAM’s and AGM-62 Walleye’s. 

The decals are from Aeromasters Stinging Hornets part 6. 

The kit was painted using Model Master paint and weathered with an enamel wash. 

I hope you enjoy the article.
