First Look

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.

F/A-18D F/A-18D F/A-18D

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!
