"Challenging Hornet"
kajoe55 (Oklahoma)
I bought the Revell F-18E to build as a gift for a friend and at first was pleasantly surprised. The fit of the air intakes along the fuselage turned out pretty good with limited to no gapping. Joining the lower and upper fuselage went together surprisingly well, in fact, it was snug where the cockpit joined the area under the front canopy. Thats when issues started to arise. The part which allows for the vertical stabilizers to rotate came loose during assembly and now rolls back and forth in the model. I blame that on operator error (I messed up). Just be aware it can come loose. Minor problem, move on. I then tried to join the nose of the aircraft to the fuselage. The fit was horrible. Where the nose came up to the cockpit had enormous gaps which I tried to fill, but still looked terrible in my option. I would like to say this was also operator error, but with everything else aligning correction and fitting well, I think this was something else. Long story short, I make it look at least reasonable and decide to keep the canopy closed. Well, I would strongly suggest that you keep the pilots seat out of the build until the end and dry fit with the canopy. My seat sits too high for the canopy to close. Operator error again? I dont think so because the seat fit like a glove and again, everything is aligned properly. So, maybe I just had a bad experience, or maybe my kit had some issues, but if you build this kit and this advice helps you build a better Hornet, I would count that as a success. Oh by the way, the kit comes with no ground stores so unless you are going straight air to air you might have to reach into your spares kit for a weapons load. Just be careful and as always have fun.

"f/a-18e super hornet"
George Galloway60
I have 2 f-18c hornets made by revel monogram getting ready to build them. and I like the f-18e super hornet to add to my other two kits by reading other reviews helps on making it easer to rate a product which looks like a very nice kit to have. I learned that after market under wing stores are great way of adding good detail to the aircraft I like using hasegawa or use eduard for under wing weaponds for guided bombs and missiles. I will add the f-18e super hornet to my other f-18 collection. yes I recommend this item.

 
"Excellent Model"
Matthew (Orofino Id)
The model kit seems to be decent with it being a Revell It is not a builders nightmare very easy to assemble using extra thin cement dry fit and inject the liquid cement through the crevices . No pilot well that's a bummer but no worries Aerobonus makes a 1/48 scale resin pilot for the FA-18 model . Well the decals are fine but a bit out dated and not the gray insignias like the FA-18s of today have . But overall it's a great plane to add to the fighter jet collection it has possibilities if you buy a pilot and find some aftermarket decals then the model should turn out nicely .

 
"Average kit excellent price."
gabrielmahaffey
You can tell just when you open up the box you can tell that it is a 2012 kit (from scalemates.com) From what I saw it is mostly free of flash on parts. As a beginner this would be a great kit. Better decals and instructions are to be desired. If you get this kit I would recommend aftermarket decals, exhausts, maybe intakes, seat/cockpit set. All in all, a bang for your buck. This kit really brought back what I did for model airplane kits when I was younger. From what I payed for the kit, I didn't expect much from the kit.
