Academy F/A-18 legacy Honet "problem"

Recommended Posts

Sorry for this but I'm going crazy...


I'm building my first Academy's F/A-18C kit and this evening I was looking at the shape of the big dorsal spine ... wait a minute... this dorsal spine looks really too "round" for me.

This panel line looks in wrong position to me...

Yes, I'd say it's off somewhat, based on those photos. I just don't know how much, if any, that affects the finished machine though. There are quite a number of finished kits in the articles database, and some look OK while others look just fantastic. At no point however, did I ever see anything that looked too out of place or inaccurate. Fix it if you'd like, but I seriously doubt anyone would ever notice the difference.
