Hasegawa's 1/48 scale F/A-18C Hornet is available online from
This is my F/A-18C in
1/48 scale from Hasegawa.
I added a Black Box
cockpit and Eduard photoetched parts. I used decals from Aeromaster
which are very thin.
The kit fits well but
needs some filling though. It' s painted with Prince August Air acrylics
which are nice but need a quick varnishing because they are fragile.
Each panel has been lightened and panel lines where darkened using
different greys (no black) and pastels were applied after - first raw
umber then dark grey with a soft brush then varnished. Finally, a black
wash was added in the panel lines and on the landing gear.
