Cutting Edge has been really stepped up their line of seamless intakes and this release is one of their latest masterpieces.
Designed for the Revell 1/48 F/A-18E Super Hornet kit, this set provides a new set of intakes and ducts as well as new F414 engine compressor faces. While the engine faces are molded in gray resin, the ducts are molded in white to save you a step or two as you'd otherwise have to paint the duct yourself.
You can see from the images of the Revell Super Hornet kit (reviewed here) that Cutting Edge has made these intakes literally drop-in replacements for the kit parts. No muss, no fuss, and no filling, sanding or painting down those intake ducts.
This is a nice enhancement to any of the Revell 1/48 F/A-18E Super Hornet kits and will ease your workload if you've been dreading the prospect of filling and painting inside those intake trunks.
My sincere thanks to Meteor Productions for this review sample!
