I have seen pics of the F18 with canadians equipped with BL755, Australian with ASRAM. It would be interesting seeing some other weapons combinations
like Sea Eagle, Alarm, Kormoran, Exocet, IRST and Meteor

I'm pretty sure that I have seen a Hornet with an IRIS-T and I seem to recall the RAAF did some trials with ALARM.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

HERE'S
a big shot of a Spanish Hornet with a Taurus KEPD 350.

I'm sure I have a pic somewhere of a Spanish Hornet with a Python IV for trials. Here's an Aussie Hornet with Python IV:

Spanish Hornets carry IRIS-T.

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Well, there really has been no new posts in this particular thread for the last 120 days but one could always wonder if anyone has ever stuck a 1/48 Hornet rear to 1/72 Su-27 wings and go along with that to have that very initial Su-27 side elevations. A-18, you know. Needs two internal bomb locations like the rotating mechanism on the Buccaneer, to still carry a regular and truncated center tank in the middle. Can also have F-15 like gunports but on both sides as GAU-8 have been too big for its own good so many times. TRAM ball from the A-6 is a must but no requirement to show it retracting. Vertical nails not Flanker type, not F-18 type but slimmer as 17. Sparrows can be hung from the wintips but an allover 1970s/80s look...
