|1/32 F-18 modelling report
... continued from page 3...
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.
The HORNETS are ready for take off now!
