Boeing F-18 (CF-18) Canadian AF 1/72 Scale Diecast Metal Airplane by Hobby Master
1:72 Scale Metal Diecast - McDonnell Douglass / Boeing F/A-18 (CF-18b Canadian Armed Forces "AETE") – Length: 9.25" Wingspan: 6.75”
This model is a twin seat and includes two pilot figures. The canopy is not movable (it does not open and close). Instead, it includes two sets of canopies, one in the closed position and another in the opened position (so don't try to swing open the closed canopy or you will break it). This model comes in a "clean" configuration with only an optional center line fuel tank and a pair of wing tip missiles that are already attached to the model. It does includes a detailed landing gear as well as the covers of the wheel wells to give the appearance of in-flight. There is a stand included.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
This model represents a Canadian Armed Forces CF-18b with AETE (Aerospace Engineering Test Establishment) markings.
The box measures 10 inches by 10 inches by 3.5 inches.
