Mainly out of box but used Quickboost bang seats and a couple of JDAM's for the two empty pylons that Revell left me with.

Main difference between this and the Hasegawa kits was the flaps being "fixed" Remedied this but cutting them off and re-fitting in the dropped position. Turned out ok IMHO.

Paints were:

Top Vallejo Model Air 047
Underside Vallejo Model Air 050
Reds Tamiya XF-7




























Was a fun build and not bad kit detail wise. Would definately consider another one.

You did a great job Tom. Very nice. I was thinking of getting the Hasegawa Jolly Rogers version, but looking here the Revell kit doesn't look that bad. Might save me a few bucks too. Thanks for the pics.

Excellent! The super hornet is a much underrated aircraft, IMHO.

Great work Takamota! You picked a good jet to model, and I really like the weathering as well

Awesome! How did you do the "used" look on the upper surface? For a Revell model it`s really great. Did you have any problems with bad or not fitting parts? That`s what I encountered many times with Revell kits..
Tamiya is way better, but more expensive. But this one looks real good, I gotta say it again ;)

Thanks for the kind comments guys. The fit on this kit was pretty good really. Little bit of filler here and there but not too much. Would definately consider building again.

Weathered finish is accomplished using preshading under the top coat of paint taking care when applying the top coat not to completely cover the preshade then post shading the panels using darkened and lightened shades of the top coat colour.

Hope this helps

Tom
