I know there are only a few of us ... and I know it’ll never be as popular as the new P-51 - but I have to say, I’m dead keen to see more of the new Revell super hornet - sprue shots, previews - but I’ve found almost nothing on line. Isn’t it supposed to be out about now?

The Revell 1/32 scale F-18E was supposed to be released last Summer 2017. Accordingly to the Revell guys I spoke at the IPMS NL Euro Scale Modelling show, the F-18E is now to be released April 2018. The RRP is about EURO 80,- in Germany.

 

On the Revell display table during Euro Scale Modelling many test sprues were seen of this new REVELL F-18E 1/32 kit. An impressive amount of parts with complex shapes. (On the clear sprue a single seater and double seater canopy was seen).

 

Here are the 2 photos I made:

I have also the 1/32 F-18E of Trumpeter in the stash but will await until the Revell kit is released to make a comparison.

I spoke to a person who works together with revell and told me it will be april- june. The Phantom and the I-16 fill the gap.

I'm HOPING the delay means they are doing final corrections/adjustments which if so, I could wait longer. Maybe someone got onboard with knowledge and pointed some things out... :hmmm:

I already threw my dice as I just sold my Trump. E kit.

Thanks for posting the parts shots, I do like that Revell separates flight controls these days.

It seems they are getting there, which surely has to have the competition taking notice.

 

Hoping it is just lens angle of second parts pic, but the rear bottom of Fuselage (Engines) appears a bit flat.

No F until September?? Guess I’ll just have to wait ... not that I’m likely to finish my current build before then at the rate I’m going I suppose ...

If they space them out you might buy all of them. If they all came out together you'd probably pick one or two.....

My Father told me two things would happen as I got older.
I can't remember either of them....

I see Super Hornets flying around here from time to time (test flights, I suppose), and they are wondrously loud and impressive aircraft. I'll eventually snatch one of these new Revell kits, no question about it.
