Readers’ Gallery: George Collazo’s 1/48 Hasegawa F-18C

Forum member Goerge Collazo shared his Hornet build on the forums recently. Excellent work on this, George!

Resin tanks from Legend Productions. The tailplanes were modified, they have aluminum tubing inside so they can be moved like the Revell F-18E. The rudders have brass wire to make them movable as well. I haven’t glued the canopy yet. I’ve been trying to make my mind on how to display it. Open canopy or build an arrestor hook ready to depart. Once finished, I did all the post shading with Tamiya Smoke using my AZTEK A470 and a Tan Nozzle. I have some GBU-12’s that I might add on on those lonely pylons.
