This is my 1/48 Hasegawa R.A.A.F F/A-18A+ Hornet painted in the “Worimi” scheme in memory of WOFF L.V WATERS, 1942-1946.

WOFF Len Waters was the first Aboriginal fighter pilot to serve in the R.A.A.F during World War II.  The name “Worimi” is the name of the traditional land owners of the Port Stephans area and home of R.A.A.F Base Williamtown. 

I made the base out of MDF and used my daughters hand as a guide, I then glued Paperbark to the base and painted it in similar colours as the aircraft.
