Malaysia National Day



Building my first TUDM kit .... 1/72 kit from Hobby Boss with additional details added with epoxy putty "Bondites" for those bumps and humps. Stretched sprue for the bird slicers ( l think this is what they called it). Plastic cards for the antennas. Not 100% accurate, most notably I drilled at the wrong position for the lights. Anyway, it does look like TUDM's Hornet, at least to me.

Decal from F-4DableModels and some decals from the box were used as well. 

Lessons learned from this build will be applied to the next build, coz the decal can build 2 aircraft.

Happy Merdeka 2020.
