--Reproduce the fearless black-painted Hornet at 1/144 This is a plastic model assembly kit that reproduces the F / A-18A Hornet operated by the Royal Australian Air Force on 1/144 scale.
[About the actual machine]
--The F / A-18A Hornet has been operated by the Royal Australian Air Force from 1984 to 2021.
――The Hornet, which first flew in 1987, was equipped with two F404 turbofan engines and boasted a top speed of 1190 mph.
--The F / A-18 Hornet, which has been active as the main fighter of the Royal Australian Air Force for many years, will take over the role to the new F-35A in 2021 and will be retired.
--In commemoration of that, NO.75SQ, one of the units that has operated the Hornet, produced an aircraft with a special coloring on the F / A-18A in 2021.
――I drew the magpie, the coat of arms of the unit, and the coloring used that color as a motif.
――The specially painted aircraft retains its coloring until it is retired, and its appearance has gained the popularity of many fans.
