Jeremy Wiltcher FINALLY!! after pre-ordering and paying for it in 2016, and watching it change due dates or disappearing for the new release lists altogether, I finally have it....... Now of course it will sit in the stash for 3 more years!! So thanks to everyone at MRS Hobbies (my local shop) for all they do and for calling me as soon as it came in..
Ben Schumacher That's got nothing to do with opinion but with research and quite a lot of facts... the Trumpeter is more accurate and easier to assemble, so Revell's only advantage is the price. Check out the build reports of the Revell kit, a total nightmare to assemble. Why wasting your time assembling one of the worst kits in terms on engineering to end up with a very inaccurate model at the end? But then, it's neither my time nor my money...

Roland Revolvermann Sorry, but it makes no sense to judge a kit you have not build. So this discussion is obsulete. So true - it's neither your time nor your money...

Ben Schumacher Of course it makes sense - I have had it my hands several times, I have seen it built up and several build reports clearly show the issues this kit has.

Roland Revolvermann nope, it make no sense. and now? your opinion doesn't interest me...why spend so much energy to call that kit bullshit...and repeating the same doesn't makes it true...there are also several build reports that call trumpeter bullshit so wtf...its just a kit, a hobby..should be fun...you dont like it...ok...but you don't have build it so you can't talk about it...im going gluing, that discussion is pointless...live long and prosper
And I love that kind of people who are comparing new tool kits from this year, with kits from 2010!
The Trumpeter Hornet is almost ten years old, which is a lot when you see how this hobby has evolved over the last few years!!!
And then comes Revell in 2019 with a kit around the corner, where there instruction tells you to remove flesh... Please what? And that has nothing to do with rivetcounting!
If Special Hobby tells you that, sure ok they are a smaller company and are offering more shurt run stuff (if something like that still exists to day) and then you have big companies like Revell, where I expect something better in the end!
By the way, Revell has repeatedly postponed the Hornet to revise the mistakes!!
Calvin Gifford Konrad - no. I was never a pilot. I was a Navy Aircraft Electrician. Was a Plane Captain on A-7's and worked on & maintained F/A-18 Hornets and Super Hornets until my retirement 4 years ago.

Konrad Limmer Thank you Calvin that is very interesting! So you have excellent references for a Super Hornet build! I'm looking forward to see your build!
