Hi Infofrog,

 

The parts that you are referring to are the bard stacks or environmental control system exhaust vents to be accurate. Parts 38 & 39 were for Hornets pre block 26 ( pre Bu No 166420). Parts 36 & 37 are for Hornets built after this. Depending on the aircraft that you are building then you will fit the appropriate ones but some of the test squadron (China Lake / Patuxent River) early aircraft were retrofitted with the later stacks. The Modern Super Hornet Guide, Jake Melampy, Reid Air Publications) is a great source of information if you can find it.

Looks like a nice kit so far, not too keen on the illuminated MFD screens though, do you get a switched off variety?

I used what the kit called for . The screen is simple . I guess I'm not sure what u mean by switch off . Sorry
