Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

McDonnell Douglas F/A-18A Hornet – U.S. Navy, “Blue Angels” (No. 1 aircraft), 2010

1:72 Scale.  Length: 9.25".  Wingspan: 6.75"

The U.S. Navy "Blue Angels" have flown nine different types of aircraft since their inception in 1946. Since November 1986 their aircraft of choice has been the McDonnell Douglas (Boeing) F-18 Hornet but they have since re-equipped with the "C" variant. These aircraft are former fleet aircraft that are at the end of their carrier arrestor capability and have been modified to perform and survive the rigors of aerial demonstration flight. The pilots don’t wear G-suits because the constant inflation and deflation of the suit interferes with the pilot’s control of the stick.

The McDonnell Douglas (Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic twin-engine all-weather night fighter and attack aircraft. The F/A-18s first flew in November 1978 and the first production flight on April 12, 1980. The first 380 aircraft were F/A-18As and in September 1987 production switched to the F/A-18C. Variants A and C are single-seat aircraft while B and D are tandem-seats. The Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases with the capability of in flight refueling. A total of 1,480 A-D variants were built.

Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
