Welcome to IPMS Ottawa's ongoing monthly SHOW & TELL, which allows club members to show off their completed work despite not being able to attend group meetings. Each member is invited to send in up to four photos of a model and some explanation. February marks our nineteenth (19th) on-line show & tell. We thank all of our members and builders for keeping alive the hobby. All entries are always welcome.

I finished off 2021 with a Hornet. I chose to use markings from the Symmetrical era, shortly after it was acquired by the CAF, mid-late 1980s. I prefer to show off the aircraft, so it doesn't have any tanks, missiles, etc. attached.
Paint is mainly Model Master enamel, with a variety of accents in enamels and acrylics. I used decals from Leading Edge, since they were very comprehensive, but the kit decals would have been ok. It took me several tries to build an acceptable head-up display for the pilot.
