1/48 Hasegawa F-18A

Gallery Article by Rod Bettencourt on Nov 7 2011

 

This is my build for a friend of mine that flew this jet during Desert Storm for VMFA 333.  I added a Verlinden seat and used the Eduard photo etch set. Intake covers were scratch built. Paints used were Model Master, decals were from the kit, which in my opinion were a little thick.

Pictures were taken with my Fuji camera set to auto. The background is the local airport, no photoshop tricks.

Thanks for looking.
