F/A 18F Super Hornet, The Digital Age

Coming soon to a screen near you :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling:

I'll be starting another aircraft, given the Mossie a break at the moment and will be starting on another build.

This will be a modern fighter but with a completely different camouflage ;)

And as you can see the whole aircraft will be covered in decals. :roll: these decals are from Syhart. The same person that did the Tiger Eyes decals.

Hi Steve, also thank you for looking in. I'm sure I'll have some :think: to do when fitting these but as I've just said the instructions are very easy to follow and nicely laid out.

Hi Ian :)
Kit and extras look really nice and the decals will look amazing. can't wait to see this coming together.
The instructions for the decals look good with the colour segments.
I notice the decals are for a Revell kit, are the decals suitable for all kits at 1/48

The instruction book for the decals also tells you which after market parts you'll need to buy in order to get the right aircraft which I thought was a nice touch.
