Super Hornet Canopy & Wheels F/A-18F & EA-18G Growler Paint Masks Set /MENG kits/ 1/48
Suggested scale: 1/48
Suggested use: MENG F/A-18F Super Hornet, EA-18G Growler kits
Re-usable die-cut paint masks
The set includes one sheet of masks (shown in the picture). The masks are made from thin masking tape, which is easy to be peeled off and doesn’t leave any stains. The tape is tested on clear and painted model too. If carefully removed after painting, they can be used over and over again. It is flexible and easily applied over curved surfaces. Semitransparent for easy and accurate placing.
is a twin-engine, carrier-capable supersonic jet fighter, redesign of the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Legacy Hornet. The platform of the Super Hornet was used to introduce the next-generation electronic warfare jet to the US NAVY and USAF – the EA-18G Growler. Currently, both planes represent the backbone of the US NAVY fleet and are constantly being improved so to extend their service life. Alongside with the USA, Australia and Kuwait are the other Air Forces using the twin-engine jet. Australia has Growler planes as well. Due to its reliability and the fact that it features two engines, the Super Hornet is planned to serve for years to come alongside the single-engine F-35C. Being used mostly from aircraft carriers at sea, the engine redundancy is the most important factor keeping Super Hornet at the top.
DN Models’ set
is designed for MENG 48th scale kits of Boeing F/A-18F, EA-18G and any eventual derivatives of the dual seater options. Using this set with any other tooling of the Super Hornet or Growler is not recommended, since every manufacturer representation of the canopy varies. The set does not cover the single-seater variant. DN Models’ mask set covers the wheels as well as the front and rear clear parts of the canopy of the F and G variants. It is similar to the masks available in the MENG’s release, but it is made from more flexible and forgiving material. It can be used either alongside with the masks in the kit or as their substitute, depending on the specific needs of the project.
