CF-188 Hornet - 'Battle of Britain' 1:72 Scale
Never in the field of human conflict
was so much owed by so many
- Winston Churchill
The tactical fighter backbone of the RCAF, the
twin engine CF-18A 'Hornet' (officially known as the CF-188) has served Canada with distinction in
around the world. In 2015, Hornet 188761 was repainted in World War 2
style camouflage and markings to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of
Canada's participation in the Battle of Britain, the air war campaign
over English skies that helped change the course of the war.
This very limited edition 1:72 scale kit includes highly detailed injection moulded plastic parts with engraved panel lines and CF-18 style vertical fin,
as well as high quality water slide decals that capture the spirit of this special aircraft in fine detail.
Featuring tail murals of Winston Churchill and F/L G.R. McGregor, as well as an eye catching camouflage pattern, this Hornet will be an excellent
addition to any modellers collection.
