1:150 Scale Diecast Metal – Boeing F/A-18C (F-18) Hornet Blue Angels – Length: 4.5" Wingspan: 3.125”
This Hornet model is made to be displayed in the inflight configuration. It is mostly made of metal and very heavy/dense. It is certainly not a toy and will not survive been played with or a fall.
The box is labeled as Adult Collectible Model and Recommends 14 and older.
Although it is a small scale, the details are very impressive. From the photos one can see and appreciate the transparent cockpit windshield. The engines are part of the wing assembly, which in turn is one single piece. There are very few gaps and/or joints in this model.
Since there is no option for a landing gear, a stand where the model can be attached for display is included and the model's info (type of airplane and scale).
The maker of the model really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. What really caught my attention, however, is the way the markings and coloring. Look at the photos and you will see very clear and crisp nose art and markings.
The box measures 6" x 6" x 3"
The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine supersonic, all-weather carrier-capablemultirole combat jet, designed as both a fighter and attack aircraft (hence the F/A designation). Designed by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) and Northrop, the F/A-18 was derived from the latter's YF-17 in the 1970s for use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The Hornet is also used by the air forces of several other nations and, since 1986, by the U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels.
