Academy 1/32 F/A-18C Hornet

Modelling Aries cockpit and exhaust nozzle set upgrade kit. Scratch building the electronics bay with copper wires and styrene strips. Added hydraulic and break pipes with copper wires and styrene strips to detail up the landing gear bay and under carriage structures.
Painting: I airbrushed black colour patch around as “pre shading”, then covered with a thin layer C307 on the top and C308 on the belly to simulate the real appearance of the “in operation” mottled aircraft.
