Aside from the paint and decal issues during this build, I had a very fun time here. I think the end results came out exactly how I had hoped for. I wanted a dirty, war laden Hornet with an OIF/OEF payload. The ordinance is a little unbalanced and unorthodox for an F-18 but it just goes to show how adaptable this aircraft can be. I am very happy to have it up on the shelf. Now to focus on the Ju-86 and Hs-129.
