Product #72-037

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Dec 28 2011

 

A great, new, colorful sheet for your Hasegawa F/A-18E from Twobobs!

Three complete aircraft are covered on this sheet from the Kestrels, the CAG jet and two line birds.  There are enough markings for the modeler to build three complete jets.

A/C 165899 is the CAG bird from this squadron.  A full color tail is featured on this jet as well as blue and white squadron markings.  Complex decals are broken up into multiple pieces to ensure perfect registration.

A/C 165902 is a standard line bird from VFA-137.  Subdued gray markings are featured on this jet.

A/C 165898 is a newer scheme line bird.  All of the line jets from VFA-137 will soon be going to this scheme.  Not sure how much I like this one but it is what it is

Twobobs would like to thank all the fine folks at VFA-137 for their hospitality during Twobobs reference gathering visit.

The decals are beautifully printed and look very clear....even on this 1/72 sheet.  It's good to see markings coming out for the Super Hornet.

Some great, new markings for your Hasegawa Super Hornet! 

The instructions are clear and include 4 views of each aircraft.  The decals are beautifully printed on 1 decal sheet and 1 insert decal sheet.  Paint codes are called out in FS #'s, Testors MM, Humbrol, Gunze Sangyo and Xtracrylics. 

This sheet is available through the Twobobs website and select US Hobby Shops.  Overseas customers can purchase these from Twobobs site or through Twobobs network of overseas distributors.
