McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18D Hornet M45-02, TUDM (Royal Malaysian Air Force), 2015

1:72 Scale.  Length: 9.25".  Wingspan: 6.25"



In early 1997 the Royal Malaysian Air Force (TUDM - Tentera Udara DiRaja Malaysia) received the first four F/A-18Ds followed by another four in August 1997. Malaysia is the first Southeast Asian nation to receive the F/A-18D Hornet. These aircraft would equip the newly formed No.18 Squadron (Hornets) stationed at the former RAF Butterworth Air Base. Ironically the aircraft first arrived with the Malaysian national insignia painted incorrectly.

The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic, twin-engine, all-weather fighter and attack aircraft flown by the US Navy, US Marine Corps and other allied nations. The F/A-18 was first flown on November 18, 1978 with the first production flight taking place on April 12, 1980. The first 380 F/A-18s were the A version and in September 1987 production switched to the F/A-18C. Variants A and C are single-seat while B and D variants are tandem-seats. The Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases and have 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.
