USMC Thunderbolts in Operation Iraqi Freedom

1/72nd scale Hasegawa F/A-18C Hornet

Here is a F/A-18C of VMFA-251 in OIF at Al Jaber,  Kuwait During March of 2003. 


For this Hasegawa kit I used the High Flight resin wing-flap set, 2-Bobs decals and assorted Hasegawa weapons sets.

The weathering is careful painting and pastels.

I built this model for my Marine son when he thought he might like to fly for the Marines. Even though he decided to take another career field, it adorns his desk.  I can't think of a better place for it!
