Here's a review of a new 1/72 sheet from Twobobs.  

Three complete CAG/CO/Line scheme aircraft from VFA-2 Bounty Hunters and VFA-154 Black Knights.  Enough markings for three complete jets!

  • F/A-18F 165916 VFA-2 CAG 100  March 2005
  • F/A-18F 165925 VFA-2 111  August 2005
  • F/A-18F 1659110 VFA-154 CAG 100  June 2005

Recommended Kits:

  • Hasegawa F/A-18F (Decals are sized for this kit)
  • Italeri F/A-18F
  • Revell F/A-18F
    Note: the instructions incorrectly refer to 48th scale kits

 

The decals are beautifully printed, and are clear and sharp. The white markings are nice and bright. Some of the markings are 2 piece decals, ensuring proper color and registration.

VFA-2 used to operate the F-14D, and the CAG markings included are similar to their former F-14D CAG.

The VFA-154 decals represent the recently changed CAG jet, which is similar to one of its former F-14As.

The folks at VFA-2 helped out, Mike Schurb from VFA-154, as well as Brian Marbrey and John Bibay.

Thanks to Two Bobs for the review sample.
