The Hasegawa kit was also completed, except for the radar nose and its radar compartment details. These will be added later on, using the Academy kit parts! 

These views show the improved Hasegawa F-18 model, 95% percent being ready.

The only remaining steps are adding the radar detail section on the model and latest small final touches.

Final steps to the Hasegawa kit was adding the nose radar and its equipment. The Academy's kit parts were used for that purpose. The bulkhead #J15 of the Academy kit was already added to the Hasegawa kit so the radar parts can easily be fitted as stated in Step 21 of the instructions. The nose cone was also set with part #J16 and set in place.

The final finishing touch was adding some missiles to the Academy kit.

  AIM-120 AMRAAM and large Fueltank

  AGM-88 HARM missile
