Caracal Models CD72140 - NASA F-18 Hornet

NASA has operated a fleet of F/A-18 "legacy" Hornets for various flight research activities for years. These aircraft play a very important role for exploring new technologies and concepts in aviation - not to mention that they look great in the NASA color scheme! In this 1/72 scale sheet, we provide markings for six NASA Hornets - both single and twin seaters, some with special markings for specific research programs. In addition to all of the options featured on our previous 1/48 scale set, this set also includes bonus options for F-18 HARV research aircraft in 1/48 and 1/72.

For the most part these aircraft are regular A & B model legacy Hornets. The instructions clearly explain the additional parts you may require for some of the options (the buddy refueling pod for 847, and optional travel pods).

We designed this sheet to fit the Hasegawa kit, but it should work with Academy kits as well as any other dimensionally accurate 1/72 scale F-18A/B kit in the market.

The options on this decal sheet are:

  • NASA F-18A "843"
  • NASA F-18B "845" Systems Research Aircraft (SRA)
  • NASA F-18B "846" - Armstrong Flight Research Center
  • NASA F-18A "847" AAR (Automated Aerial Refueling) program markings
  • NASA F-18A "850"
  • NASA F-18B "852" - Dryden Flight Research Center
  • NASA F-18 HARV bonus markings (both in 1/48 and 1/72)

Accurate stencilling and national insignia to build any one of the options is included. This sheet was professionally screen printed by Cartograf in Italy.
