F/A-18 Hornet Tiger Meet 2012

The Original:

Although the box of Italeri let you believe that this F/A-18 Hornet of the Swiss Air Force Staffel 11 received this special scheme for the Tiger Meet 2012 in Ørland, Norway it was already painted like this for the 2011 Tiger Meet. This painting was also still present at the Tiger Meet in 2014 in Schleswig / Jagel.

In Scale:

The model is the well-known kit made ​​by Italeri, which has also been sold by Revell years ago. A few details do not actually agree, the raised engravings are no longer really contemporary, but the paint variant had its charm for me. Therefore, I decided to purchase this kit. The Hornet was painted with Tamiya colors and the Airbrush. The decals are VERY thick and can be applied more bad than good. Nevertheless, the outcome of this jet can be called a success (at least to my standards).

45+88 “100.000 Flying hours JaboG33″

The Original:

Starting in September 1985 JaboG 33 from Büchel started flying the Tornado. Already after 14 years they reached the 100.000 flying hours on a Tornado. For this anniversary a special schema was applied to one of the jets. The jet never flew with any loads as far as I am aware of.

In Scale:

The Jet itself was again from Revell. It was painted using Tamiya acrylics. The decals are made by Syhart and are perfect. Only at the landing gear doors they have been a bit too big. But that was easy to change.
