Dave Olszewski – Hasegawa – 1/48 Northrop Grumman F14D Tomcat and 1/48 McDonnell Douglas/Boeing F18C Hornet

This time, I am showing some pictures of 1/48 Navy fighters that I’ve finished. Both are built from Hasegawa kits; but, I used aftermarket decals and cockpit seats for each of them. The F-14D is a low-visibility scheme for VF-2 “Bounty Hunters” when the F-14 Tomcat was still in service. The F/A-18C is of a VFA-97 “Warhawks” aircraft that was painted in a special camouflage scheme. Both aircraft have been weathered to show the typical fading / touch ups that are prominent for Naval aircraft operating in salt air environments.

I created the carrier deck surface from foam-board, painted and weathered to match the deck surface colors with the red / yellow boundary markings. I used photo-etched tie-downs for detail on the carrier deck.

I supplemented the diorama using equipment from a 1/48 Kinetic carrier deck equipment set:. Tractors / tow-bars, etc.

Stay safe and healthy!

Thanks,
Dave Olszewski
