"Hunting F18 Hornet to scale
This is a small project, something simple that it did and turned out to be a combat model F / A-18 Hornet very easy to print.
The F / A-18 Hornet is a fourth generation multi-purpose fighter of American origin with the ability to be shipped on aircraft carriers. It was developed in the 1970s by the McDonnell Douglas company. It was developed from the Northrop YF-17 prototype for the Navy and Marine Corps of the United States. The Hornet has also been exported to seven countries to serve in its air forces. Since 1986 it has been used for aerial acrobatics by the Blue Angels air demonstration group of the US Navy.
This fighter plane combines hunting and attack capabilities to attack both aerial and ground targets. It can be seen in its designation F / A, "F" in Fighter and "A" in Attack (in Spanish: "caza" and "ataque"). The main missions it can perform are: escort, air defense, enemy air defenses, interdiction, air support and reconnaissance. Due to its versatility and reliability it has proven to be a valuable device. Although he had been criticized for his lack of scope and capacity for weapons.
The F / A-18 has been manufactured in four main versions: first the F / A-18A / B and later the improved F / A-18C / D. The A / C versions are single-seaters, while the B / D versions are two-seater. The C / D versions of the Hornet have served as the design baseline for the creation of the F / A-18E / F Super Hornet, a larger and more advanced evolution. Compared to the original Hornet, the Super Hornet is bigger, heavier, with more range and has more capacity for weaponry. The introduction of the F / A-18E / F has allowed the removal of several types of outdated aircraft (such as hunting, attack and tanker) in the US Navy, which now has the F / A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet in its fleet and, thanks to its versatility, fulfill all the missions of the retired models.
