1/48 F/A-18A 77 SQN RAAF - Kinetic

Postby AndrewPerren » Sat Jun 15, 2019 6:30 pm

Hi AMIérs

This is my recently completed 1/48 Kinetic Hornet. It represents A21-7 as she was circa 2006 with 77 Squadron and finally gave me a chance to use my Afterburner Decals Hornet sheet.

I added some extra goodies into this project.
Resin Seat, Resin wheels (Nose-AMS resin , Main - Attack Squadron), Resin burner cans (Attack Squadron).
AIM-132 ASRAAM from Airfix spares, Litening Pod from Tamiya spares and scratch modified TACTS pod.
Eduard etch set in the cockpit abd some epoxy putty intake FOD bungs.

Paints used were MRP and SMS Lacquers.
Happily for me this model was awarded First place (1/48 Aircraft - Jet - Modified) and also Best Kinetic Model at Australian Model Expo 2019.

I hope you like her.

Nailed the weathering IMHO Andrew, a most realistic rendition. The Grumpy Monkey intake blanks are a nice touch too - congrats!
