Gday All
Apart from a hasegawa eggplane,this is my first for the year, moving and getting a man cave set up have put the brakes on the modelling for the first half of the year
I've been enviously admiring all your builds appearing on these pages, wishing I could get something done too!!
Anyway, this is the Hasegawa 1/48 F18A done up as A21-7 wearing her experimental scheme of overall gunship grey with light grey stencilling as tried during the late 90's to 2001. Another Hornet A21-20 wore overall grey with black stencilling. Not sure why the scheme was not carried through to the fleet, perhaps too conspicuous as they are now trialling our Lead In Fighter hawk127's in the same scheme to try and make them more conspicuous in the sky
As I was keen to get it off the bench, I thought I would leave the weathering alone, apart from a simple panel line wash
An eduard zoom set was used in the cockpit as well as Royale Resin wheels
Decals are a mixture of Afterburner, hawkeye and Aussie Decals, paint is Gunze under Testors Dullcoat
Its let done by that nasty seam under the windscreen and that wonky blade aerial, but she'll do for the time being, thanks, Ryan H for your help with the info
