The F / A-18F Super Hornet is a state-of-the-art jet fighter / attack aircraft of the US Navy.

This unit is based on the F / A-18C and has undergone a major upgrade. As for the features of the appearance, the large size of the aircraft and the angular intake shape are the first to be noticed, but in reality the entire aircraft is composed of a new design different from the C type , improving flight performance and weapon loading capacity. In addition,
it is finished as an aircraft that incorporates future development potential.

The F type is a double-seat type aircraft, and is being deployed as a successor to the F-14 Tomcat.

The kit accurately reproduces the form of Super Hornet. We will fully express the sharp lines of the latest machines. Equipped with a drop tank, AIM-9X sidewinder, and AIM-120C AMRAAM.

A-4M Skyhawk
Scale … 1:48
Part number ……… PT33
Release date …… Around August 04, 2021

Skyhawk’s final single-seat model “A-4M” is an aircraft developed for the US Marine Corps.

When the deployment of the A-7 Corsair II to the U.S. Navy began and the leading role of the carrier-capable attack aircraft was changed from A-4 to A-7, the U.S. Marine Corps attacked the A-4M on land instead of the A-7. I adopted it as a machine.

For the M type, the engine was replaced with J52-P-408A, and the intake was also enlarged accordingly. The outline of the vertical stabilizer has also been changed to a square shape.
A large type of windshield is also installed. The electronic equipment has also been significantly redesigned, including the fin tip radome on the vertical stabilizer, the LST on the nose, and the ALR-54 / ALQ-126 on the nose and tail.
