I got this kit for the Centennial+50 (I was born in Canada back when the Red Ensign flag flew). I have not yet got the nerve up to build it. Only got as far as admiring the sprues and decals. I see you have taken on the one thing that holds me back and that is to remove the seem on the canopy. I actually ordered another clear sprue from Kinetic via Lucky Models in case I F' it up. Also thinking of getting a 2nd set of decals also just to be safe. I have been watching your build. Cheers.
3. July, 21:57
Jens
Thanks Robbi, my suggestion for the canopy, get yourself an Eduard MiG 21 (there were also in Canada). Eduard always has 3 versions of canopy that you don't need, you can practice on them ;) because of the decals I have don't worry, Leading Edge offers a very good replacement, or I simply use other Canadian markings, also from Leading Edge, because the Canadian special markings are simply the most interesting ones that can be found on the CF 188 / F18

I don't worry about decals and canopy, I have been looking for the perfect red for a long time and hope to have found it

Man Jens, missed this totally...very wel done so far, respect for the red paint very nice and tight!
16. July, 05:23
Jens
Thank you colleagues and welcome on board :) After a long search I got a relatively inexpensive care, a plus for the canopy but also training money when it comes to the clear coat, I destroyed with some decals through the paint, only the simple orange maple and easily replaced by a Model Master Orange and some Tamiya tape, but still tuition in terms of paint :( the hull quickly had its color without much worry, the small parts and rudders are like dust catchers and so is the vertical tail before the decals bathed in Dowanol a good 15 times and freshly varnished ...., but slowly it comes to the larger decals and the alignment is again something that requires more than just calm and patience :)
17. July, 16:00
Thomas Bischoff
quite some decals to do

First model aircraft I ever built at age 9. My grandmother got it for me. First glue-together model I ever built as well. I've got three others I've found, but this one is still FACTORY SEALED! I've been looking for a sealed one to open and start when I retire (again).

Thanks Guy, Donald, Arne, Christian, Roland, Daniel & Stephan!! I am humbled by so much positive feedback, but I guess the Sukhoi bureau really made a show-stopper with the splinter camo applied on the huge but sleek & streamlined Flanker airframe...

This project really was a line-up of highs - I liked the kit, the cockpit, the opportunity to do some metal experiments and the investigation to find the right color shades and balances to replicate the prototype´s colors as they appear on the pictures!
23. August, 17:34
ZHOU Kun
The flanker looks great! Thank you for sharing!
25. August, 00:42
Björn Svedberg
Looking great! I love your choice to display the hornet with retracting gears.
25. August, 05:59
Mateusz Wisniewski
I admire the finish on the exhaust! The 3 gray splinter camo looks so nice.

Clifford Keesler
You sure did hit a home run with this one. OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!

Thanks ZHOU Kun, Björn, Mateusz, Clifford and Giuseppe!

Björn the Kinetic F-18 kit, with a lot of version-based & double parts is a great base for such works - it featured 2 set of main gear legs, making the retracting position easier to set-up with sawing & re-connecting the legs.

Mateusz - I spent a lot of time brooding over photos in different lights & angles to get the dark color right. Make it too grey or too blue and it just kills the appearance - suggestions from instructions were obviously wrong, I mixed various combinations of greys & blues and checked them in various light conditions before arriving at a tone I liked :)

That is absolutely fantastic! Photo 20, what a stunning job on that metal work! Congratulations on this perfect result!

Just discovered another version of this kit on eBay.
Instead of the Prototype markings being in the kit with the R.A.A.F. ones it has US production aircraft markings along with the R.A.A.F. ones.
Never saw it back in the eighties.
This kit is extremely inaccurate in regards to an actual production Hornet and is only a collector's item

I had added the Australian version of this kit too to the database and it's been deleted too.
I guess I'll have to try again once I receive the kit.
So I can upload a photo.
I did add the post script Australian insignia included but obviously that was missed

This kit is issued in Australia with Australian insignia added.
I'd added it to the database.
It's been deleted.
It's a bit disappointing.
I guess someone flagged it as a duplicate but I'd added a post script of Australian insignia included

Still scratching my head over this one, since General Dynamics had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the development or production of either the Legacy or Super Hornet. SMH...

Well I just did a quick search and there's only two places it has General Dynamics in the title and that's here and Metro hobbies in Australia.
The Airfix website doesn't mention General Dynamics so I guess the title could be changed

Nice to see your work-steps on the LG & the paint-job - the outcome was quite spectacular & ultra-realistic Hornet - as seen here on the title pic too :)

The max-extension legs just before touchdown really look goof

I worked on exactly the same kit, but added Aires cockpit, Nozzles & Wells - (none of which was specifically for Kinetic...) - the Nozzles are very nice & fit fine, the cockpit was a real pain to fit & probably only worth the effort if you want an open one - I discovered that too late. The wells do not fit the Kinetic kit at all, lot of sheet added, but once there, are really nice... Just in case you want to build another one soon ;)

I would like to keep modification to a minimum, in order to reduce difficulty in the building :) Building OOB is fun :)

So... October approaching at supercruise speed... I ordered my Aggressor model & decals at least a month ago via a physical store (a reasonably good one...), because I think physical stores deserve support these days... Suspicous since I got no notification, today I dropped by like "Greetings sir, where´s my model?"

Turns out they had some software issues & the order is only just about to go out! :o

I was hamstering RedBull cans for some epic night shifts on my Vark to be ready for the GB +/- on time, yet now this happens...

Anyway, I´ll think about something, not giving up! Not at all in fact... ;)

Tough luck Slavo... Hope for the best. Also I agree about the physical stores, problem is I don't have one in the city I live...

I am impressed with the modification on the F/A-18 landing gear. The main gear legs are not fully extended when retracted and you made it so realistic, thumbs up!

Kinetic did a really nice job on this Hornet! The only thing that I notice off the bat that's missing is the HMCS pickups on the canopy rail. Nitpicky, I know, but every U.S. fleet legacy A++, C, C+, D and D+ Hornet had them after 2010 - even the ones in VFA-125! Fortunately, not a big deal to scratch.
