Product Description

The twin-engine F/A-18 "Hornet", built by McDonnell Douglas, is a Multi-role attack and fighter aircraft. In it's fighter mode, the F/A-18 is used primarily as a fighter escort and for fleet air defense; in it's attack mode, it is used for force projection, interdiction and close and deep air support. The F/A-18 was designed to replace the Vought A-7 Corsair II and the McDonnell F-4 Phantom II in Navy service, and to augment the more costly Grumman F-14 Tomcat. The F/A-18 demonstrated it's capabilities and versatility during Operation Desert Storm, shooting down enemy fighters and subsequently bombing enemy targets with the same aircraft on the same mission.

The Navy's Blue Angels flight demonstration team converted from Douglas A-4F's to F/A-18A's in 1986. The single seat F/A-18A's are early versions which are no longer considered capable of carrier operation. The Hornet is still operated by the team today.

The Marine Corps has completely replaced it's fleet of A-6 Intruders and RF-4B Phantoms with F/A-18D's.

About this Handcrafted Wooden Model Aircraft:
This beautiful handmade airplane model is an authentic replica made from the finest grade of select kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. The model is made entirely by hand: From the handcarving of the aircraft fuselage, to the sanding of the aircraft's contours. Every part is assembled precisely into place. After shaping and sanding, the model passes through several stages of priming and sanding before it is hand painted to duplicate the actual colors, emblems, and insignias of the original historical aircraft. Finally, multiple coats of clear lacquer are applied to protect the artwork and provide an overall glossy finish.
