|Date of Review||August 2009||Manufacturer||MAW Decals|
|Subject||F/A-18D Non IFF Update||Scale||1/48|
|Kit Number||48-R014||Primary Media||Resin|
|Pros||Very simple update for the Hasegawa Hornets||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$4.99|
MAW-Decals continues its love affair with the F/A-18 Hornet in this latest release. This set updates the Hasegawa 1/48 F/A-18D with the additional antennas applied to the late block and refit Hornets with the IFF updates, but this set supports those Deltas that received a number of the updates except for the new IFF system (the bird cutter blade antennas ahead of the windscreen).
This set provides the comm antennas, a new navigation antenna and the all-important GPS dome (not shown here but also included). These simply attach to the specified spots on the airframe with a touch of cyano and you're updated!

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