--------------------

Here's a review of a new 1/72 sheet from Twobobs.  

This sheet has enough markings for one complete set of markings for the 50th Anniversary F/A-18F jet from VFA-102.  All white decals are double-printed for excellent opacity!

Red decals are provided for the outer, upper and lower wings and outer, upper and lower horizontal stabilators. The tails and fuselage spine and upper forward fuselage will need to be painted Insignia Red. The white diamonds are placed over the red painted area on the spine.

The decals are in-register, clear and are beautifully printed.

 

The instruction sheet has 4-view drawings to assist in decal placement, and also includes the complete history of VFA-102.

This jet is very unique and is the first Super Hornet to be decorated so extravagantly.

Recommended Kits:

  • Hasegawa F/A-18F
  • Italeri F/A-18F

This sheet is available through http://www.twobobs.net/ and select US Hobby Shops.  Overseas customers can purchase these from Twobobs site or through Twobobs network of overseas distributors.  Remember, shipping is always FREE to US Customers at Twobobs!!
