Specifically tailored to fit the new Hasegawa kit, Twobobs releases some wartime markings for the Super Hornet!

Three complete aircraft are represented on this sheet from VFA-115 of Lemoore NAS.  These aircraft were previously released in 1/48th scale.  All of these aircraft carry mission markings and nose art.  The nose art was painted on by Kwame Harris and Jeff Jarvis who are both currently assigned to VFA-115.  These aircraft also carry the names of firefighters from Engine 54, Ladder 4 of New York city.  These men lost their lives during the WTC attack.

BuNo 165784 "Absolut Justice"

BuNo 165789 "Never Forget"

BuNo 165791 "Hijack This"

 

Mission loadout information as well as other technical info. was provided by Lt. Robert Kihm who was a pilot with VFA-115 during this deployment.

 

 

The decals are clearly printed and even the smallest stencils appears very clear....remember this is 1/72 and these stencils are tiny.  The instruction sheets are include colours listed for Testors, Humbrol, Gunze Sangyo and Xtracolor.

A very nice decal sheet and recommended for 1/72 jet builders interested in planes that served in OIF.
