F-18 Super Hornet
The F-18 Super Hornet rules the skys!
About this creation
The F-18 Super Hornet.
Type:carrier-based naval strike fighter
Power:two 71-kN (16,000) thrust General Electric F404-GE-400 turbofans.
Weightmaximum take off weight is 22317 kg (49,200 lbs).


A front view of the plane. The dimensions of the real F-18 are a wing span of 11.43 meters (37ft 6in), and a length of 17.07 meters (56ft), so I took these dimensions and made my replica 11 by 17 inches instead of meters.


A side view.


An"inflight" view with me holding it. The F-18 is equipped with a M61 20-mm six-barrelled cannon mounted in the front of the nose, for close quarter combat,plus nine external hardpoints for weapon(bomb) storage under its wings.


A back view of one of the engines, and tail wings.


An afar view.

The F-18 super hornet is an upgraded version of the original F-18. It was released to the navy in 1999. So how do I know this stuff? Well my dad who is an aerospace engineer, helped design this plane. He worked on the landing gear. The F-18 remains in combat today, but is slowly being replaced by the F-22 Raptor.

Thanks for viewing, please leave a comment!

It's not an F-18. It's a Harrier/Hornet mix...Nice work though.

sometimes, criticism is helpful in improvement, and I have built a hornet out of real bricks and it transformed into a robot and was more detailed and could still hold a minifig. sorry to take this to your page dylan B, really. Very good still.

very good, but not very accurate at all. the real one has two jets and the wings really aren't slanted. All in all, very good, but it looks more like a harrier.

This is good, very good. But, it needs two engines, less slanty wings, and it is being replaced by the F-35, not F-22.

Its ok, it looks way more like some spacefighter than a Hornet though.

In this model it is very evident that you put effort into the design. My main gripe about it is that the wings have a sharper leading edge. Very nice model though! | | By the way... The Super Hornet at this point in time is not being phased out of US service. The United States Air Force doesn't Use F/A-18s, due to the F-15 (The Hornet and Super Hornet are Navy). The Raptor is designed to replace the F-15, but it's innability to take off from a carrier made it useless for Navy. The F-18 is planned to be phased out sometime this year by F-35 Lightning, which is basicaly a small F-22 with a lift fan, one engine, and a less swept leading edge. | Still, this is a very nice model.
