Afterburner Decals 1/48 F/A-18F VFA-2 Decal First Look
|Date of Review||August 2009||Manufacturer||Afterburner Decals|
|Set Number||48053||Pros||A look at five examples as they appeared between 2004 and 2008|
|MSRP (USD)||Out of Production|
Afterburner Decals continues to turn out some impressive decal releases covering contemporary US subjects and this latest set is definitely no exception. This release covers several examples from VFA-2 after they transitioned into the F/A-18F Super Hornet.
The first two examples are actually the same airframe as it appeared with different crew names in two different years. This set provides a good cross-section of markings between 2004 and 2008 with a mix of CAG, commander, and line aircraft.
The examples presented here include:
- F/A-18F, 165916, VFA-2, NE/100, USS Abraham Lincoln, 2007, CAG aircraft
- F/A-18F, 165916, VFA-2, NE/100, USS Abraham Lincoln, 2008, CAG aircraft
- F/A-18F, 165917, VFA-2, NE/102, USS Abraham Lincoln, 2007
- F/A-18F, 165911, VFA-2, NE/103, USS Abraham Lincoln, 2007
- F/A-18F, 165919, VFA-2, NE/103, USS Abraham Lincoln, 2004
This set provides a complete set of maintenance stencils and markings to replicate one aircraft, but what a nice selection to choose from!
My sincere thanks to Afterburner Decals for this review sample!
