Add to basket

After the itroduction of the F-15 Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon, the US Navy and Marine Corps were looking for a new aircraft to fulfill the roles of fleet defender and strike platform. Thus the McDonnell Douglas F-18 Hornet was created. This was an individual looking twin engined fighter which provided the naval units with a significant upgrade. The Hornet is an extremely tough aircraft due to it needing to operate in the demanding environment of aircraft carriers at sea. It has proved itself effective in its originally intended roles and also proved itself to be reliable in comabt. The Hornet is perhaps best known as the aircraft operated by the US Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the ‘Blue Angels’, with the team flying the F-18 since November 1986. The team are regarded as one of the premier aerobatic display teams in the world and their thrilling displays of precision flying are the highlight of any Airshow in which they perform.

This set includes all of the piants and glue needed to complete the model.
