Cutting Edge 1/48 F-18E seamless intakes




$19.99 MSRP


Revell 1/48 F-18E Super Hornet


Scott Van Aken

This new seamless intake is for the Revell 1/48 F-18E Super Hornet. There is no indication that these will fit the F-18F kit, but if the design is the same, then they probably will. You get two bone white intakes with trunking and a set of compressor blades to fit in the back. As there are no instructions with this set, they must be a direct replacement for the kit parts and therefore, a breeze to use. I'm especially impressed by how thin the walls of the intake are.

As usual, the molding is top notch and the white resin intakes mean that you won't have to worry about painting them.
