F-18C Hornet Blue Angels 1/56
Scale: 1/56 | Wingspan: 8.6 inches | Length: 12 inches
After the successful production and deployment of the F/A-18 A and B variants, the US Navy began adding the F/A-18C model. This single-seat fighter aircraft is equipped with missiles for both air-to-ground and air-to-air targets. With its night attack capabilities and state-of-the-art radar systems, the F-18C Hornet became a powerful asset within the US Navy. The same aircraft is used by the Blue Angels Squadron for their flight demonstration. The F-18C has been performing breathtaking stunts and displaying exceptional maneuverability since the late 80s. In lieu of the aircraft gun, the Blue Angels outfitted this Hornet variant with a smoke-oil tank. It also has an inverted fuel pump and a stopwatch installed.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
