F/A-18 Hornet
About this creation








The F/A-18 "Hornet" is a single- and two-seat, twin engine, multi-mission fighter/attack aircraft that can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases. The F/A-18 fills a variety of roles: air superiority, fighter escort, suppression of enemy air defenses, reconnaissance, forward air control, close and deep air support, and day and night strike missions. The F/A-18 Hornet replaced the F-4 Phantom II fighter and A-7 Corsair II light attack jet, and also replaced the A-6 Intruder as these aircraft were retired during the 1990s.
The F/A-18 has a digital control-by-wire flight control system which provides excellent handling qualities, and allows pilots to learn to fly the airplane with relative ease. At the same time, this system provides exceptional maneuverability and allows the pilot to concentrate on operating the weapons system. A solid thrust-to-weight ratio and superior turn characteristics combined with energy sustainability, enable the F/A-18 to hold its own against any adversary. The power to maintain evasive action is what many pilots consider the Hornet's finest trait. In addition, the F/A-18 was also the Navy's first tactical jet aircraft to incorporate a digital, MUX bus architecture for the entire system's avionics suite. The benefit of this design feature is that the F/A-18 has been relatively easy to upgrade on a regular, affordable basis.

I G9ve this 5 stars because I recognize it as being the 5-18. Not to harp on the others, but the wings look a little bit short. nevertheless, awesome job with your fighters. This is a difficult thing to do with lego being anti-military.

I'd say give each wing another three or four studs in length, and probably extend them another two studs back. All in all, it's not that bad. Nice job. -- -- Michael

Great work on this mate! One head missing because you have to improve the color scheme a bit, but otherwise it is just awesome! And there is always room for a next try :)

Hey Simon. Thanks for the review. I will try to make the wings and also the engines, those are the two parts that I think that are bad. Bruno
