F/A-18F Super Hornet, VFA-11 "Red Rippers"
This is my 1:39, minifig scale F/A-18 "Foxtrot" Super Hornet, Rhino to its pilots. built from an F-35C last July after I saw the Super Hornet in my first airshow. Afterwards I got to talk to the pilot and backseater (from VFA-11 aboard USS Enterprise) and look at, smell and touch a Super Hornet for as long as I wanted. I took a dozen or so pictures and got some priceless memories. Anyway, the Super Bug is the frontline strike fighter of the US Navy today. It is 61 x 43 feet in size and weighs a tad over 30,000 pounds empty, and 47,000 pounds when loaded. My model is 61 x 44 studs, and took about 3 hours to build, then a pair of 2-4 hour semi-rebuilds, one of which redid the rear wings and another that added space for 2 crewmembers.
About this creation


View of my Rhino's loadout- 3 330g tanks, 8 AIM-120C-7 AMRAAMs, and 2 AIM-9X Sidewinders.




A view of the bottom with the stores removed. I really liked how the whole thing felt significantly lighter when I took the weapons off.

Are you looking at the top down pic at the very bottom? It does look oddly short there, doesn't it? Though this model has been gone for like 8 months now, I always felt the nose was a good length, at least in the other pictures, particularly the view of it "clean" from the bottom.
