F/A-18C Open Burner Nozzles will be available online from Squadron.com
Beautifully moulded in
a dark grey resin, Aires has captured all of the intricate detail of the
F/A-18C Hornetís exhaust nozzles.
Detail from the turbine through to the flaps of the exhaust nozzle
aperture has been faithfully reproduced. Two fully open nozzles are
supplied to replace the 1/32 scale Academy kit parts.
The cooling liner area within the afterburner has the fine detail
showing the different liner sections, and the length of the afterburner
looks to be to scale. The inner hot flap area is supplied as a separate
insert to be fitted inside the cold flap aperture. The cold flaps are
the later style with the small cut out on the outside edge. Two nicely
etched metal flame holders are included to be inserted just after the
turbine and will add to the exceptional detail already provided.
Assembly should be straightforward, with only basic modelling skills
being required to install this detail set as there is no modification of
the kit parts required for these exhausts to drop in.
I thought that the detail on the kit nozzles was good until I compared
Thanks to Aires for the review sample
