    Super Hornet mission question

    I was talking to a RIO from VFA-2 at the Travis AFB Air Show a few weeks ago (VFA-2 brought two Fs for display). Her response to the same question was that the Fs do the fast FAC role as a unique mission set as the second crew member comes in handy. They can work the radios and the sensors and the pilot can focus on flying.

    Best 1/48 MER & TER out there?

    The Academy F-4 MER/TER are very basic. Why not Hasegawa?

    Best 1/48 MER & TER out there?

    Eduard's MERs are too short. Their own bombs won't fit. Aerobonus is another option. I don't know about TERs. I ordered Eduard's.

    Head over to downtown Napa and check out Loose Caboose Hobbies. Do some wine tasting while you're at it!

    I can't help with decals but Hasegawa is the go-to kit for Skyhawks, especially the early versions like the A-4B. I suspect there are aftermarket decals available for Argentinian birds.

    I'd be interested in Academy's efforts if I were looking for a 1/72 Super Bug. They have an E, an F, and a G.

    Joe, out of curiosity how did this work out? I’m looking for a custom printer too. I tried decision height but I’m not happy with the result.

    Sword 1/72 F3H Demons

    Thanks for the write-up. I have one of these kits en route. I've got the Sword TF-9J, F3D, FJ3, T-28C, and now this F3H and I'm looking forward to getting into them!
