F/A-18A - RAAF, 3SQN 75th Anniversary (Hasegawa 1/48)

The Hasegawa 1/48 F/A-18A Hornet, built as operated by the Royal Australian Air Force (Note the absence of nose wheel catapault arm and additional nose wheel landing light). Model was completed using the Eduard photoetch set and Aussie Decals anniversary sheet.

During 1991, shortly after delivery of the last of 75 Hornets to the RAAF, the 3Sqn CO's aircraft (A21-57) was painted in a special scheme consisting of a blue spine and outer horizontal tail surfaces. This scheme was to commerate the 3Sqn 75th Anniversay.
