This is my first aircraft kit and probably my first fully painted one too. I bought it from HobbyLink Japan and it was a pretty good model for the price. I’m not a Pro or serious builder so I skipped on some steps like filling gaps with putty and priming the model. Here’s what I used on this build.

Purchase this aircraft from HobbyLink Japan!

– 1/72 WB F/A-18 Horne

Tools used:

– Plastic side cutter
– Tweezers
– Thin cement
– Tamiya thinner

Paints:

– RM grey flat
– Standard white
– Post box red
– Olive Green
– Silver leaf
– Black
– Navy Blue

I finished it off with a coat of Clear Flat Top Coat. I didn’t use much of the decals since I’m not very familiar with waterslides but I will complete the rest of the decals at a later date.

Hope you like it.
