Dennis Mathes Thank you very much, guys. It was not an easy build and took a lot of filling, sanding and resribing, but it was fun.
@Patrick, I've added some styrene and lead wire to the seat, and the adapter pylon for the targeting pod was recast from the Academy F-18C. This pylon is not included in the 1/72 Hasegawa F-18 kits. It was forgotten by Hasegawa. I've also added the six brackets on the inside of the vertical tails. The AGM-65G missiles came from one of their weapons sets, and the triple launcher was modified to a single rail laucncher. Decals for the missiles are from Wolfpack Decals, and the decals for the jet are OOB.

Patrick Hagelstein Cool! The Hasegawa kit can be built into a masterpiece (as you showed) but it's a pain in the ... Much harder than the Academy one. But you nailed it!

Patrick Hagelstein Wow..... I was trying to get in touch with Dennis about a set of self designed painting masks I saw he did over on ARC. Looking through ARC and Scalemates, I learned he sadly passed away 22 February 2018, only aged 44. So sorry to learn of his passing away only now.
