"Super Hornet is a Super value"
Ed H. (Byron, GA)
I just finished building the Revell 1/48 scale F/A-18F (two seat version) of this model. It is modeled after an early production Super Hornet with a few minor flaws but nothing drastically wrong. The seams are decent and the model goes together nicely with minimal filling and sanding needed. I substituted the plastic landing gear for a set of aftermarket metal gear because of the way the model set, I was not happy with the clearance of the rear fuselage but for the price of this kit you can't wrong. The decals in this kit are nice and crisp but I used a different decal set on mine to represent a VFA-32 Swordsmen jet, I did however use the kit decals for the instrument panels in the cockpit. Looks awesome.

"Good value"
This kit is a great value. It has reasonable detail for the price and builds up into a decent representation of a Super Hornet. With a little work and patience it can be a great kit. I found a few gaps and small fit issues that were fairly easy to correct. All in all its a typical Revell kit. Low priced and reasonable. However you arent going to get the options and extreme detail that some of the higher end kits give. For the modeler on a budget it is a great model that can really stand out with some weathering and scratch building.

"Excellent model to build and fun!!!!!!"
Ken W (New Market, TN)
this model of the f-18e hornet was complex if you made it to be with detail but was fun. this model also would be easy for beginners moving up into the level 2 and three range. has plenty parts to paint and or detail to the specified colors or by you imagination so you choose on that one. there are very small parts to this model, holding tools and tweezers will be needed, this model took me about 6 months of taking my time to complete. the directions where very easy to follow. the only thing I didn't like was that the paint chart was only on the front page and not through out the directions of building so you had to keep flipping back and forth, unless you cut that part out to keep it to the side and move on. that is what I did and it worked out just fine. I enjoyed this model very much and would highly recommend it to anybody who likes model building and or military aircraft. you cant be quality and price!!!!!!!!!! A++++++++++++++++

"F/A 18 Super Hornet"
skippykeesler (Wood River Ill)
A nice offering from Revell with plenty of detail. The only reao issue I had with this kit was that due to the way the Horzintial stabulator is enigered it makes the afterburner cans too shallow. Other than that I have no complaints.Care must be taken when assembeling the forward nose to get a good fit, but if taken carefully this is not a problem. The wheel wells are very nicely detaile and I like the intake trunks all the way to the engine faces. I used the Eduard PE cockpit detail set which adds greatly to the cockpit,but with carefull painting and dry brushing the cockpit still looks good and a nice decal for the instrument panel is provided on the decal sheet.(both powered and unpowered). The decal sheet only provides markings for a single aircraft, but there are plenty of aftermarket decal sheets out there. As a value for money kit IMO this is the best FA-18E kit on the market,you can get 4 of these for the cost of 1 Hasegawa FA-18 and I do not see where the detail is all that different other than the afterburner cans. I would recommend this kit. I have built 4 of these and have 3 in my stash waiting to be built.
