Description

 

Here is my Hasegawa 1/48 scale F/A-18A+ Hornet.

I used wing-fold mechanism / Litening 2 pod / Maverick single launcher / A+ update kit from Wolfpack Designs to customize Hasegawa's kit, and improved details with Big-Ed photo-etched from Eduard.

 

 

Wolfpack Designs' wing-fold mechanism is very easy to assemble and features extraordinary details. All you have to do is cut and insert according to the manual and all is done.

In the case of their A+update, in my opinion it features superior detail to its rival product from MAW, and the angle of the IFF "bird slicer" antennas is more accurate.
