Description

It may be hard to believe, but it’s been more than 35 years since the F/A-18 Hornet, often referred to as the legacy Hornet, entered service. Since then, the versatility of the aircraft has made it a mainstay of U.S. carrier decks as well as with seven other air arms around the world. I still remember marveling at the sleek fighter the first time I saw one in Royal Australian Air Force markings. That makes leafing through Duke Hawkins Aircraft in Detail 008: Boeing F/A18A/B & C/D Hornet especially inspirational.

 

The beautiful 140-page softcover volume will be a terrific reference for any Hornet builder. As with the other books in the series, the focus here is photos, many of the kind of walkaround images that modelers seek when working on a project. There are pages and pages showing different cockpits and ejection seats as well as landing gear and bays, arrestor hook, speed brake, and engines. A bunch of photos of Hornets undergoing maintenance reveal rarely seen avionics bays and engine compartments. Add spectacular photos F/A-18s in service with around the world and you have a winning reference for legacy Hornets that will have your next project ready for takeoff in no time.
