First Look

F-4Dable Models produces an interesting range of details and decals in their growing line of hobby products. In this release, we have part one of the Malaysian Aif Force's F/A-18D Hornet decals with the first eight aircraft portrayed here. Currently the aircraft are simply marked being painted in overall Gunship Gray FS36118.

  • F/A-18D, M45-02, 18 Sqn, Butterworth AB, TUDM
  • F/A-18D, M45-03, 18 Sqn, Butterworth AB, TUDM
  • F/A-18D, M45-04, 18 Sqn, Butterworth AB, TUDM
  • F/A-18D, M45-05, 18 Sqn, Butterworth AB, TUDM
  • F/A-18D, M45-06, 18 Sqn, Butterworth AB, TUDM
  • F/A-18D, M45-07, 18 Sqn, Butterworth AB, TUDM
  • F/A-18D, M45-08, 18 Sqn, Butterworth AB, TUDM

The decals are nicely rendered and provide a very useful set of maintenance stenciling for one example in addition to the distinctive aircraft markings. Two types of roundels are provided to replicate the aircraft in early service (circa 2004) as well as the revised roundels currently in use.
