Revell’s 1/48 F/A-18E Super Hornet- The Super Bug Gets Some Paint

The basic coating of paint is on the Super Hornet. I won’t weather this one too much, as it’s going to have more of a “show bird” appearance, with fairly colorful markings. The markings will be for VFA-105, the “Gunslingers”, similar to the photo.

There is still quite a bit of work today. Landing gear and doors, pylons, drop tanks, some ordnance, and more.

I’m really enjoying this kit! Best fun I’ve had in a long time for $14!
