Hobby Master HA3531 RAAF McDonnell Douglas F-18B Hornet Strike Fighter - A21-103, 3 Squadron, RAAF Base Williamtown, 2006 [Low-Vis Scheme] (1:72 Scale) "Per Ardua ad Astra ('Through Struggle to the Stars')"
- Motto of the Royal Australian Air Force

The F/A-18 Hornet is the true multi-role aircraft. It can vault from a carrier deck, bomb a target and stay to dogfight even the best enemy aircraft without missing a beat. It's the Navy's first modern-era jet intended for double duty against air- and ground-based adversaries. Armed to the hilt with Sparrow and Sidewinder air-to-air missiles, an internal cannon, and laser-guided bombs, this modern warbird was an outstanding performer in Operation Desert Storm. Strapped into a digital cockpit described as a cross between Star Wars and a video game, pilots of the F/A-18 Hornet take on the ultimate aviation job: blasting this single-seat, high-performance jet off the deck of a carrier, dropping bombs, and firing air-to-ground ordnance. Offering unmatched agility, the Hornet is the choice aircraft of the US Navy's elite Blue Angels aerobatic team.

Pictured here is a gorgeous 1:72 scale diecast replica of a Royal Australian Air Force McDonnell Douglas F-18B Hornet Strike Fighter that was attached to 3 Squadron during 2006. Sold Out!
