That's a Hornet's nest if I've ever seen one there Colin.

good start, Colin, I think all yours are 1/48 if I remember correctly. And also damn well made and painted.

I have a couple done as well. Most are using Leading Edge decals in 1/72. Around 10 more in 1/48. Two more in 1/32.
Everything except the 1/32 are colour birds. Neat how the colour birds have been used over and over again sometimes with other squadrons. Even on the other side of the country.
I am happy with my 1/32 and 1/48 but I am replacing a chunk of the 1/72 ones now that I can do better. Some of these models are as old as the Hornet itself.
So far I have.

That's quite the list there Shawn! I have actually sold off some of my older Hornets, including a couple of the demo birds I had built. I'm actually looking forward to this build as some of the schemes, while colourful, will still represent active combat jets.

Do you have any left to show Colin?

I think it is fitting 702 was an egg plane, it was the onlly Hornet I hated.

Fitting end for it too, I was there for it.

phantom December 29th, 2013 09:45 AM

I remember that story. Did they save it or just scrap what bent parts remained?
