This is a project I've wanted to do for a long time. Originally I was going to do it in 1/48 using the Hasegawa CF-188 kit but that went sideways. Both times. Then Kinetic came out with their re-box of the Academy kit so I grabbed that. Then purged it from the stash in a bit of down sizing. Finally I got a regular Academy release and started collecting the necessary bits. And it's finally time to get this onto the bench. Some of the AM involved in the build. The decals are only a partial set. They include the smaller markings but give you stencils for the stripes. I contacted the folks at DN Models and they made the templates into masks along with some of the bigger markings so I can paint them on. I've also got an Aires cockpit set, Rhino seamless intakes and some various PE sets. For reference, I have Jake Melampy's book on the Hornet and this book on 439 Squadron. There's some great shots of the two Tiger Meet planes if which I'll be doing the latter one.
