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... :D
5. June at 08:47:29
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.
6. June at 09:13:55
Ben Schumacher Lol, so much butthurt...
8. June at 22:42:43
Soeren . Indeed :D

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!!

9. June at 06:29:56
Jeremy Wiltcher Well, that escalated quickly......

I mean that really got out of hand fast!.....

9. June at 13:58:55
Treehugger Let's save some for other threads. :) Good luck with your F-18 build. Such large model should be such a nice display piece.
9. June at 14:30:12
Mel06 Guys, a question for those who have assembled this kit ... this super hornet at 1.32 how is the mold) I mean the lace, fit well or should we have putty ready?
21. August at 13:24:45
Jose Romo I had to do some sanding and filling on the vertical stabilizers to fit the body, filling and sanding on the intake areas... I wasn't expecting this for a brand new mold, but it was fun to build :D

Eduard sells old molds ("old" ECS exhaust) from Hasegawa

The decal variants already have the "new" ones.
Too bad, thought Eduard does not need that.

Anthony D'Agostino
I bought a set of these, not really knowing what I was buying, mostly an impulse buy. Anyway, they seem nice, but I have, ZERO experience with resin. They are very light and the feathers are very thin, so be careful once you separate them from their base, it will be very easy to break them. I wish I had waited to remove the base, but after getting tips on resin, I was excited to practice what I had learned. Now I need to put them somewhere safe, or they will be broken. The detail is nice on the feathers and compressor faces, but the instructions are far from perfect. The notches shown on the nozzle and the exhaust tube (not sure the correct name) dont even match up. It looks like the three notches fit the three groves, but they don't fit. So, not sure what that will lead too, maybe the engines will be too long, in that case, I will have to cut the engine down to make it fit. That will leave me a bjt angry. I plan to contact the company before I try assembly, just to see if they can clarify why the notches don't match the nozzles.

In hind sight, I would probably gone with the aires kits, they have some really nice looking upgrades to the engines and cockpit. Oh well, I do have two of the kits, so maybe I will build the other with a combination of aires and big ed.

Goodluck to anyone who has these, and if you figure out how they go in, please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Anthony D'Agostino Thanks bigtime, saves me the trouble of trying to contact the company for details!

Upon viewing your set, then inspecting mine, I realized that I missed the very thin line indicating where I still need to remove material from the internal nozzle, leaving behind the stubs, then it should align up with the engine. Thanks a million!

Also, there are two compressor faces in mine, but one has a lot of resin at the base, and I figured it would just flat sand that until the details became hollow. If you need a picuture of the part, let me know, I will try to post it on my page, or direct you to its location on britmodeller.com. I will have to figure out how to add photos, as I am still new to scalemates.

The first time I visited this site, I was BEYOND confused. Now that I am starting to understand it, I am in love, it is the end all be all of modelling needs. Then you have the help of people like you, making it that much better!

Anthony D'Agostino I have two of these in my stash, and I wish I had been a member of these sites before I bought the kits. I am new to modelling after a thirty year layoff, and as one of my favorite subjects, I had to have them. Recently while going thru all my research regarding the kit, after market options etc, I started to read about the kits construction. Every single build review speaks of horrible fit problems that seem to compound as the build moves forward. Some parts look aligned, only later to find that they create a worse problem with subsequent parts being added, just a never ending nightmare of problems. Most are inexcusable flaws based on the kit itself and not builders errors. For a kit this expensive from a company this well know and trusted, there is absolutely no excuse for the aweful way the kit builds up. For experienced modellers, there is nothing that can't be overcome, but for people like me, it will take me years of building to regain the skills it requires to complete this kit and have it look half decent.

I hope you are able to finish the kit with success. Mine will likely become a test bed for experiments, never making too a finished, presentable model. Shame too, cause it can look great in the right hands. I spend more money on aftermarket kits, most of that will be wasted as well.

I will never buy another kit without first finding out what is wrong with it. As for hasegawa releasing a kit this poor, theu should be embarrassed about it.
3. April at 06:14:59
Michael Hickey That's a shame to see this kit is disappointing to you and others that have done reviews on it. I built my kit last year or so and enjoyed every bit of it, sorry you feel this way.

Soeren . I must say that Ive read a lot of reviews and also talked with some mates, who build this kit and NONE of them is saying what you are writing.

Sure it has here and there some fitting issue here and there, but nothing "horrible" like you are saying.
3. April at 06:50:03
Nathan Dempsey I had the opposite impression of this Hasegawa's Super Hornets. I had several kits from other manufacturers and found Hasegawa's to have LESS problems with both fit and accuracy (at least with test fitting). I'm super happy with mine.
3. April at 11:48:53
Soeren . Maybe he read about the A to D versions, which have some more issues?!
3. April at 11:51:18
Nathan Dempsey I'm also easily pleased. For the newer kits I'm happy as long as it fits together reasonably well. Accuracy concerns come and go for me. Sometimes I care and sometimes I do not (as long as it is a good attempt by the manufacturer).
3. April at 12:14:51
Anthony D'Agostino Hey guys, I haven't even started to build these kits yet, my negative views are based on multiple accounts of fit issues from modellers of extraordinary talent, far beyond the beginner level. This was not a one off bad review, it is multiple reviews from different sites. I hope you guys are correct, as I love the subject so much, it breaks my heart (and my bank) if these turn out to be the horror I keep reading about. And no, it is not the wrong version/kit, I can tell easily the difference between a C and the F aircraft, the intakes and sheer size make it impossible to mistake one for the other.

Here are the links to the build reviews that I am referring too, all of which are linked above, that is how I knkw about the reviews in the first place.

ipmsusa.org/reviews/Archive/.._FA18F/Hasegawa_48_FA18F.htm

https://modelingmadness.com/scott/mod/us/f18f.htm

I also came across at least one more review with the exact same issues, and apparently, once the fit issue begin, they progressively get worse because many parts go on without the aid of interlocking/alignment points, where the builder just rough estimates the location based upon matching lines. Any degree off, will certainly begin such a cascade event, leading too giant gaps later on. Plus they all mention the bottom insert of the flaps is ridiculously small for the space it is supposed to fill. How can that even be? Having a seam to fill is one thing, but if their right, and only when I begin to build the flaps will I know, that is inexcusable.

At worst, I have a kit that leaves me with very low expectations. Sadly, the kit arrived already with damage, lots of parts are broken off the sprue, which is why I have two kits. The store sent me a replacement, which also arrived damaged in the very same way. I was hoping to make one as a finished airframe, the second as the cannibalized aircraft, since that is how the navy has been coping with budget cuts, sacrificing one plane to allow others to keep flying.

Add in the aftermarket additions though, and my investment is pretty steep. I hope these will at least build ONE decent kit, as with the fit issues, I won't be starting this kit any time soon. I will work on my MH-XX series of helos to sharpen my skills with all black birds (hard to mess that up) while giving me a chance to work with both PE and resin, before I tackle these expensive kits.

Thanks for the input, I hope you guys are right, only time will tell.

Eric Juvyns I also have the old C and D kits. And the fit of these is not that good. But for me the fit of the E version is very good. Als always one has to take the time (a lot of it) to do some dry-fitting and make up a build sequence very loosely based on the instructions. For me this means finetuning the fit before using any glue. Also trying to glue as many parts together (sub-assemblies) before painting. Paint can ruin the fit with most Hasegawa kits. Most of them have a very tight fit.
So IMO you just have to make up your own conclusions, don't listen to much to al those reviews and just build the kit and foremost have a lot of fun doing so.
4. April at 20:03:24
Anthony D'Agostino Roger that! I keep seeing reviews from online stores, all in the positive..... So my hopes for agood build are growing! Now I just need the E and G kits.

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. :)
