F/A-18 STGB: 8 Jan to 10 April 2022

The F/A-18 didn't have a STGB since 2013 (thanks theplasticsuergeon). Given the importance of the jet, as well as it's diversified users, from Finland to Australia i believe this machine does deserve a STGB on it's own. 

 

The would be spanning the original bug as well as the superbug. Apart from the current I would also love to see what-when's of prospective users (i am thinking of the superbugs Germany is about to get).

Definitely count me in.

 

As it so happens, I've been building up my F/A-18 stash this year, both of "legacy" and "Super Hornet" versions. I still need the EA-18G "Growler", which I plan to get soon. Actually, I already have the Revell 1/144 scale kit, which is nice, but it's not the One True Scale.

The last one I did was a 1/48 Revell Superbug in VFA-192 Golden Dragons USN Centennial Korean war Scheme. So maybe this time do a Legacy Hornet in USN 75th anniversary scheme of the WW2 four tone camouflage. That or possibly an aggressor or a Growler ?

You could always do a Malaysian Hornet just to be slighly exotic ;)

True but Im kind of burned out on grey jets right now. Who knows by the time this gets its turn (and it will), I may just do a USN/USMC jet. 

Time to find some aggressor decals.  :devil:

Gosh I had forgotten about this aircraft myself. I'm not a fan of the earlier models, but do like the Superbug......which reminds me I must finish mine! :doh::whistle:

 

But a Growler maybe of interest to me!! My son actually wants to be a WSO in one of these, will be applying to transfer to the airforce soon.

 

Guess you'd better sign me up!
