Review by Steve Bamford on July 29 2008



This new decal sheet from MAW Decals includes stencils for 1/48 F/A-18A-D Hornet.  

This decal sheet includes;

  • all the basic airframe stencils for the single and twin seater F/A-18A-D

  • landing gear stencils 

  • ejection seat stencils for the SJU-17 seats, 

  • weapon pylons stencils

  • AN/ASQ-173 

  • AN/AAS-38

  • AN/AAN-28

  • AGM-65E

  • AIM-9M

  • GBU-12D

There are other decals such as one on the inside of the nose gear door that is also included.  This sheet is exceptionally complete.

The instructions are clear and include 4 views of the Hornet showing stencil placement plus full colour views of the weapons showing stencils placement.  The decals are beautifully printed on 1 decal sheet plus one small insert decal sheet.  Some decal come in 2 layers to ensure perfect registration.

This is the type of decal sheet most modellers dream about and I fully expect this decal sheet to sell out very quickly.  If you plan on building a 1/48 F/A-18A-D Hornet, then do not delay buying this will not be disappointed.


I would like to thank MAW Decals for providing me with this review sample.
