I just started a Matchbox 1/144 F-18 and discovered it's a prototype.
Are there any out there that are production versions?
Interestingly, I spotted that the starboard horizontal stabiliser is
moulded at the wrong angle. I found some 1/72 drawings and reduced them
to 1/144 to check. It looks like I'm going to saw off the stab and file
it down to get the correct angle. That's Plan A. Plan B involves
scratching one out of sheet plastic.

No question. I was kind of nervous to buy it, worried it was a DML or old
LS tool. Thankfully that wasn't the case. Great kit. I want to know why
we get a new tool 1/144 Hunter and CF-18, but no new 1/72 Hunter or CF-18!
