DN Models have released a set of masks for the insignia for the Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornet in 1/48th scale.

Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornet Insignia Paint Mask Set 1/48th

Suggested scale - 1/48th

Suggested kits - Most F/A-18 Hornet kits in 48th scale

SKU -48/827-099

This set includes the yellow markings, the letters and the numbers for planes from 1 through 7. It does not include the small letters/logos/serial numbers and the Blue Angels patch on the nose.


The set includes two sheets of masks (shown in the picture).  The masks are made from thin masking tape, which is easy to be peeled off and doesn’t leave any stains. The tape is tested on clear and painted model too. If carefully removed after painting, they can be used over and over again. Material is flexible and easily applied over curved surfaces. Semi-transparent for easy and accurate placing.

The F/A-18 Hornet

kits that can be used alongside this set are various. Since 1986, A, B, C and D Hornet jets were used and this allows for even more kit options. This paint mask set is designed and based on Kinetic kit, but the masks are suitable for many other quarter scale Hornets as well. Since numbers 1 through 7 are included in the set, more than one airplane can be painted using the masks. Have in mind that for repetitive use of the mask foil it needs to be treated with care and with mild and non-aggressive mediums. However, this does not guarantee that it will work several times and that is dependent solely on the modelers’ skills.
