MAW-Decals continues its love affair with the F/A-18 Hornet in this latest release. This set updates the Revell/Monogram F/A-18A kit with the updated nose profile used on the late production blocks of the Hornet, adds the IFF antenna system and other distinctive changes found on the upgraded aircraft.
Molded in white resin, this set consists of the new radome w/gun ports, a new upper nose section with the bird-cutter IFF antennas, and the other new antennas.
What's more, this is a very reasonably-priced update at under $15 USD, so you can bring all of your Hornets up to date.

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