Product # WVP 32 001 for $10.00 CAD for Academy kit

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Dec 13 2012



This resin conversion set from WINTERVALLEY is intended for use with the 1:32 Academy F/A-18C and D kits to allow building the kit as an early production CF-188 'HORNET'. The set uses the early production short ECM fairings on the tail.

The set also includes water slide decals for early variants of 409 and 410 squadron crests.

Recomended to be used in combination with Wintervalley CF-188 Symmetrical Era Markings.

These are direct replacements for the kit parts to give you the correct tails for the early Canadian version on the F-18.  The single water slide decal sheet is of the highest quality and very clearly printed.

This is an amazing conversion set as it makes everything so easy for the modeller to make a CF-188 from the 1/32 Academy F/A-18 kits.

I would like to thank WINTERVALLEY for providing me with this product sample.
