So I got dragged into Hobby Lobby the other day by my wife and was thinking what am I going to do in here to kill some time. Then I remembered they have model cars and airplanes so I grabbed my 4 year old son and told my wife we’d be in the back looking at model kits. My son LOVES planes and helicopters (not sure where he gets that from?). He immediately grabbed onto an AH-64A that thankfully was an easy snaptite kit.
Anyway, it got me thinking… it would be cool to do an F/A-18C model for my desk to celebrate the DCS release. Does anyone have any experience/recommendations on good kits for the Hornet? The last time I did a model was over 25 years ago so my experience level is on the low side
Tamiya, Hasegawa, and Academy all make some nice model kits in different scales. Revel makes some decent ones for a better price as well. I usually go to https://www.hobbylinc.com/ when I’m looking for my next model kit.
Yeah, funny thing is he has a toy A-10 and AV-8B and of course he’s flown both of those in DCS already. He also has an F/A-18 and he frequently asks me “daddy, can I fly this one?”. I always have to answer him with “two more weeks son, two more weeks”.
