If you were to go with the Tamiya Hornet, fit would be more or less as boxed. Looks like Hornet lost her deck stripes between the raid and Midway as they canít be seen during flight ops filmed around the time of the battle. The kit does have its downsides accuracy wise as far as scale, but still can build into a beautiful representation of the Hornet.
i was going to get a Tamiya USS HORNET in 1:700 off of Facebook's Market Place for $15 ... but - I backed out of the deal. I decided to get a Hasegawa F-9F off Amazon, and decals for it off Ebay...
But, f I ever decide to get the HORNET, could I have it built NOT as the Dolittle Raid HORNET ... Could I have it built as the Midway HORNET?
How was she armed during that battle?
