Here's a review of a new
1/72 sheet from
Two aircraft are
represented in their new Super Hornet markings. Enough marking
options for two complete jets.
This is a scale-downed
version of the 48th sheet 48-103 with the same subjects.
- F/A-18F 166632 VFA-11 CAG Jet
from Aug 2005
- F/A-18F 166467 VFA-106 CO Jet from
The decals are
beautifully printed, and are clear and sharp. The white markings are
nice and bright. Some of the markings are 2 piece decals, ensuring
proper color and registration.
For the VFA-106
jet, there are very nice decals for the intake covers, and the
instructions refer to Steel Beach products by Darren Roberts, and their
line of covers (available at www.spruebrothers.com).

VFA-11 recently converted
from the F-14B to the F/A-18E.
VFA-106 recently added
Super Hornets to its fleet and is the East Coast training unit for Hornets
and Super Hornets.
The folks at VFA-11 and Dan
Teker helped out with the references.
The instructions are clear and
include 4 views of each aircraft. The decals are beautifully printed on 1
decal sheet. Paint codes are called out in FS #'s, Testors MM,
Humbrol, Gunze Sangyo and Xtracrylics.
I would like to thank Twobobs
