Academy 1/32 F/A-18

By Steve McLaughlan

This is the Academy kit ' Year of the Dragon' which is a very nice kit. The only additions are the Verlinden seat and the decals (can't remember who from). The colour scheme took some time to mask, as the decals come with paper templates for you to use as masks for the scheme, but I decided to use the easy (?) method of using Blu-Tak and Maskol. The effect is quite good and the masking left no marks on the paintwork.
