Building a Fist of the Fleet

The Hobbyboss 1/48 F/A-18C Hornet is an excellent kit. Finished as shown, it looks like a Hornet, it sits like a Hornet, it feels like a Hornet. Any given day, this model kit will certainly be adequate for a good build, and then some.

But all of that has changed with the advent of Kinetic Model Kits of Hong Kong, who intends to shake things up (along with KittyHawk Models) with modern jet subjects coming out of its ears.

So what of the old Hobby Boss F/A-18? Do we consign it to the collector’s bins and just leave it be to move on to a better kit? You be the judge, as I take this rare opportunity to showcase what was, for me, a very fun build.
