The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is probably the world’s most advanced air superiority fighter/attack aircraft and is often seen thrilling air-show crowds around the world. It is currently in service with the US Navy, the US Marine Corps, the Spanish, Australian, Swiss and Canadian air forces. This title provides a detailed guide to modelling the Hornet in 1/48th and 1/32nd scales, covering a variety of colour schemes. The step-by-step modelling projects include a 'Gunslingers' F/A-18C USN Hornet from Operation DESERT FOX, an F/A-18D Hornet from the Royal Malaysian Air Force, a Navy 'Black Aces' F/A-18F Super Hornet and an F/A-18A ‘Top Gun’-school Hornet.
