MAW-Decals has another nice selection of US Marine Corps F/A-18D Hornets. This set covers four F/A-18D Hornets from three different squadrons: The Green Knights, the Fighting Bengals, and two exampes from the Hawks.
This set includes all of the national, service, unit, and distinctive markings for three aircraft, including sufficient maintenance stenciling, and formation lighting.
This set provides markings for the following:
- F/A-18D, BuNo 164685, VMFA(AW)-121, VK/01, Oct 2004
- F/A-18D, BuNo 164694, VMFA(AW)-224, WK/01, Apr 2007
- F/A-18D, BuNo 164874, VMFA(AW)-533, ED/05, Jul 2003
- F/A-18D, BuNo 164876, VMFA(AW)-533, ED/06, Jul 2003
Once again, this set provides a nice set of alternative markings for your next Hornet project. These can be used with any manufacturers' 1/48 F/A-18D Hornet kit (though I'm certain they're fitted to the Hasegawa kit).

My sincere thanks to MAW-Decals for this review sample!
