MAW-Decals continues its love affair with the F/A-18C/D Hornet in this latest release. This set updates the Hasegawa kit with the nose profile used on the late production blocks of the Hornet, adds the IFF antenna system and other distinctive changes found on the newer aircraft.
Molded in white resin, this set consists of the new nose, a new nosegear door, a replacement nosegear well forward bulkhead, and the new antennas.
A decal sheet is also included to provide the additional/revised vents applied to the newer airframes.
What's more, this is a very reasonably-priced update at under $18 USD, so you can bring all of your Hornets up to date.

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