Revell F-18

Recommended Posts

Type... F-18A Hornet

Scale... 1/32

Manufacturer... Revell (and Tamiya putty)

My aim... Get it done!!!!!

What stopped the build?.. Lack of motivation.

What do I think would help my build get through to completion?.. Paint, decals, you guys.

 

Large Scale Planes; In Progress

 

I got right up to the point of painting this thing and then decided I didn't like the pylons that I had built. Months later I made new ones and then a few months after that, I etched some panel lines into them.

A year or so after that, I contacted Jeff roberts and bought some external fuel tanks.

 

Then a shelf fell on it.

Thought I better include some more recent pics.

 

The old box and a few extra bits.

This the same kit as Jerrys (No, you can't have my tail hook. But considering how much I had to modify mine, you may as well scratch-build a new one)

The condition it's in now.

I actually have a set of low viz data decals for this as well as a nice set of aftermarket markings.

I wanted to make it look a bit like this;

Great comic timing mate!

Come on though, Keith, ANZAC goes back further than ANZUS!

Do her as an Aussie bird!

Acually not a bad idea.

 

Think I'll stick with the scheme I've got... unless someone out there has an Ozzy low-viz scheme that they would be willing to part with.??

 

I wasn't kidding about the shelf, destroyed 7 planes in one go.

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune!

Sorry to hear that mate!

Oh, I know that awful feeling, a collapsing shelf burried most of my collection at some point. My sympathies.

OK..back home.

 

I'll have spare on this sheet all except A21-29 (Magpie). I have a pet Magpie that comes like a dog when I whistle. He's 'almost' eating out of my hand. A very cool bird.

Drop me an PM with your ady and I'll lob them in the post to Kiwi Land.

 

cheers Matty

Slight change of plan.

With a little help from Matty, I might have a go at making it look a bit like this;
