Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Die-cast Model

McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18A Hornet – “Top Hat”, A21-29, 75 Squadron, RAAF, 1990

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

Limited production of approximately 700 models

F/A-18A Hornet #A21-29 was accepted by the RAAF in April 1988. In May 1990 while deployed to Clarke Air Base Philippines a Top Hat and Cane were applied to this aircraft’s tail designating it as the C/Os personal aircraft. On August 2, 1990 two F/A-18 Hornet’s (#A21-29 and #A21-42) departed RAAF Tindal on a practice pairs intercept. Maneuvering during these intercepts can be quite violent trying to lock onto the target. Unfortunately A21-42 lost sight of A21-29 and rolled into it killing the A21-42 pilot while A21-29 managed to land safely.

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.
