1/32 - F/A-18C (Academy) - VFA-86 Sidewinders "CAG"

Recommended Posts

Hi All


This is the Academy 1/32 F/A-18C from the Kinetic boxing. Its been on my bench on/off for quite some time but I have managed to finish it. There are no decals in 1/32 for this aircraft that I fell in love with so I had to make paint masks for most of them, using what I could find as templates. Some stencils I could source from various aftermarket sheets but the black/orange combination is not easy to find.:rolleyes:

Its a really great kit and I am glad that Academy have re-released it again in the shape of the F/A-18A+ kit (it has all the parts for the C version). The lines of the legacy Hornets are just more appealing than the Super Hornet to my eyes..


It has the Aires Wheel bays and bombs are from Wolfpack. The Sidewinders are from Zacto models (it had to be the best for a Sidewinders bird ;))


Hope you like it.
