Description

This is an injection-plastic jet aircraft model kit.

Hasegawa continues their 1/48 modern jet line with the Super Hornet, and what a job they have done with this kit! We begin with a stunningly well-detailed cockpit, including two crew figures with optional heads so you can build the figures with either the current helmet configuration or with the new JHMCS helmet with its built-in sighting visor. Intakes build up with full trunking ending in realistically reproduced compressor faces, and the exhausts are likewise beautifully done. Gear bays are deep and well detailed, and the multi-piece gear assemblies have data stencil decals provided on the decal sheet. Leading- and trailing-edge flaps are separate pieces, with optional TE flap hinges for full-up or full-down positions. Also, hinge pieces are provided so that with a few swipes of the modeling knife you can have the wings folded (diagrams show you exactly where to cut). Stores included are an AN/ASQ-228 ATFLIR pod, four drop tanks, two AMRAAM and two AIM-9X. The canopy can be positioned open or closed, as can the boarding ladder. Decals are for BuNo 166620, AA 103 of VFA-103 Jolly Rogers, BuNo 165882, NF 102 of VFA-102 "Diamondbacks" and BuNo 165878, NF 100 CAG bird from VFA-102.
