MAW-Decals continues its love affair with the F/A-18 Hornet in this latest release. This set provides the Hasegawa F/A-18A/B/C/D kits with replacement exhaust nozzles that have FOD covers in place, as well as plugs for the engine intakes to replicate the FOD covers there as well.
Molded in white resin, this set consists of four resin parts that are drop-in fits for the Hasegawa kit. These may work with other 1/48 scale Hornets (not Super Hornets) but you're on your own to adapt these for non-Hasegawa applications. What's more, this is a very reasonably-priced update at under $6 USD, so you can configure all of your Hornets inexpensively.

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