The F/A-18E Hornet is the US Navys newest Fighter/Strike Aircraft/Recce
aircraft/OIF jet. There are a few kits of this jet available in 1/72 scale. From
Revell Germany, Italeri and Hasegawa. This sheet can be used on any of those
The sheet covers three jets from VFA-113 “Screamin’ Eagles” aboard the USS
Abraham Lincoln. All three of the jets sport markings honoring the heroes of the
New York Fire Department Ladder Company 54. The markings were applied during
their cruise supporting Operation Enduring/Iraqi Freedom. The names applied to
the three aircraft were members of Fire Station 54 who lost their lives on 9/11.
This sheet is quite special considering its markings. I cannot think of any
better way to honor the heroes that sacrificed their lives to help those in
As usual you get enough markings to do all three jets completely in 1/72 scale.
The decals are in register and the colors are quite dense. You also get photos
of the actual aircraft to aid in painting and markings placement. Bob shouldcbe
proud of this sheet!!
I can honestly say I am no Hornet expert. I was USAF J . In fact I had no idea
that the Super Bug was even in combat prior to getting this sheet!
As usual it is quite impressive and will provide the modeler with three
excellent options for his/her Super Bug.
