and this is the first EA-6B Prowler finished.

I am currently modifying the Super Hornet from the E model to F

That's all for the moment.

Good morning to all carrier lovers :big_grin:

I continue with the F-18 E,s and their painting process and installation of decals.

Murphy´s law says that you will always forget a decal when you design them, so, i have to redesign my decal sheet in order to correct them.

Hope you enjoy the advances.

Thank you very much Dave,

The ejection seats are from Shapeways. I have in mind an F-18F landing with position lights, but at this size is too complicated.

1/200 scale ejection seats and detailed landing gear! Wow! Very impressed sir. Of course you'll have to have working navigation lights on some of the Hornets to go with your other fantastic features of this build (:

Keep up the great work and more posts!!

Dave

Hi friends.

I am currently working on filling the hangar. So here are some F-18E from scratch. They are not painted yet.

Comparison with F-18C

Details of the cockpit and ejection seat

And details of the nose gear. It is composed by 20 tiny parts.

Thank you very much for viewing.

This continues to be a very impressive project. I cannot wait for more updates. Those bombs look very familiar.

Hey Jorge, your hangar is really starting to get alive. I really love what you are making. It's always such a pity that a lot will be not seen in the end, makes you want to build a wifi mini camera inside the hangar to see all its beauty in the end. Can't wait to see more! (two thumbs up)


That's the idea Jacques. I am planning to install a camera in the front wall in order to see a general view of the hangar.

Thank you very much for your comments.

Hi friends

New advances in the hangar deck. Finished the front wall of the hangar. I installed the doors for the elevator nº1 and the fire control station.
I also have placed the E 2. I have to attach chains and chocks to it. Here are the pictures.

Hello friends.

Now is time to fix the disaster that photobucket has created. I am going to update (slowly because is a lot of work), all the photos in this post.

I hope you enjoy
