Here is my 1/48 scale F/A-18E Super Hornet from the Italeri/Revell
kit. This is the old kitm released well before the recent
REVELL model with new molds.
The "old" kit is quite acceptable. It
was modified by separating all flaps/slats and gluing them at angled
positions. I added some Hasegawa GBU's and AIM-7/ AIM-9 missiles
from the weaponsset.
The jet was painted with MODEL MASTER colors
and finished with FUTURE and a wash of acrylics.
The plane is depicted while it is stopped by the arrestor hook on
board of USS "Abraham Lincoln".
