F-18 Hornet US Navy - Eagle Nose Art - 'Chippy Ho' - Armour Collection 1:48 98017


Superb McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C Hornet by CDC Armour Collection (later Franklin Mint) in the markings of a US Navy aircraft of VFA-195 'Dambusters' flying from the USS Independence in 1995. Piloted by Captain Brian Calhoun, 'Chippy Ho!' had one of the most spectacular examples of 'nose art' ever applied to a front-line military aircraft - a very striking display piece that would enhance any collection.

A substantial and heavy weight die cast metal model with some plastic parts.

A pre-owned model taken in as part of a larger collection of aviation items. This model was displayed briefly in a glass cabinet but has spent most of its life boxed and in storage. The model is in perfect 'as new' condition. The original box is in excellent condition.

The original internal packaging retaining screws are missing, the model will be well secured in transit by the custom formed polystyrene pieces but care should be taken when opening.

These larger Armour Collection / Franklin Mint pieces are getting hard to find now, they look impressive when displayed and would be a nice gift for an aviation enthusiast.

For transit the original box will be packed securely inside a bigger postal box.
