Tech Notes
            This is a 1/72 F/A Super Hornet Aircraft from Italeri.

Although it still looks like an F-18, the new F-18E fighter is an almost totally new aircraft. The aircraft was developed following the failure and cancellation of the A-12 and addresses the range and payload shortcomings of the earlier F-18 models. The aircraft is not yet in service but will have a useful life well into the next century.

Optional ordnance includes a selection of missiles. Canopy may be posed open or closed.
