F 18 VFA-146

Recommended Posts

Yeah, another completed aircraft build. I've said this before but I'll say it again so that everyone knows my abilities. I'm primarily a car builder. Been around cars/race cars my entire life so I know where everything goes. So, when it comes to building and detailing it pretty much comes natural.

Aircraft, however, a whole different scenario. I have to do research for every build and hope that I get it right, or relatively close to right. The technical aspects of building aircraft are totally different than car/truck subjects. I am in total awe of so many aircraft builders and their abilities to get the finishes/weathering just right. 

So, with the disclaimer out of the way here is my latest build.

F-18 VFA-146 Blue Diamonds using a Revell kit along with Twobobs decals. I'm trying to add the appropriate paint details and still trying to get the whole weathering techniques down. Still a ways off on that. All that aside I am happy with the results and think it looks good on the shelf.

Oops, this is the second time I've posted a completed build in the wrong area.

Good looking Hornet and a cool scheme to boot! That Revell/Monogram kit isn't one of the easier F-18 kits and you did it up very nicely. Congrats, and thanks for posting!
