I am building the Testors 1/48 F/A-18 as the prototype TF-18 in the white/blue/gold scheme.

It is a Frankenstein TF-18 because the cockpit tub, exhaust parts, wing flaps and pylons are from Hasegawa. The IP's are from Black Box and the seats are from Verlinden.

Here are the cockpit parts dry fitted.

The kit flaps were cut to fit the Hasegawa flaps. The Hasegawa flaps are taped for test fitting and fit quite well.

The kit put together with the Hasegawa tub and Black Box IP's installed.

Hasegawa exhaust parts. The rear of the Testors kit was cut out to fit the hasegawa exhausts. The Hasegawa parts fit pretty well with little fuss.
