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.

188702 421 (this one is an egg plane)
188703 425
188703 441
188709 433

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.

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