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.
