Hobby Master - HA5130

Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series HA5130 McDonnell Douglas F/A-18F Super Hornet ˘TOPGUN 50th Anniversary Scheme÷ 165796, NAWDC, US Navy. 1/72 Scale Diecast Model, Size: 7.5" Wingspan, 10" Long, Optional Up & Down Landing Gear, Armaments & Display Stand Are Included.

The Boeing F/A-18E and F/A-18F Super Hornet are twin-engine, carrier-capable, multirole fighter aircraft variants based on the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet. The F/A-18E single-seat and F/A-18F tandem-seat variants are larger and more advanced derivatives of the F/A-18C and D Hornet. The Super variant can carry a larger array of weapons as well as more of them and is capable of returning to the carrier while still carrying unspent munitions, a big savings in dollars. The first F/A-18E flight was in 1995 and began delivery to the USN in 1999. Primary Role: Carrier-Based Multirole Fighter.

The filming of ˘TOPGUN: Maverick÷ in 2019 coincided with the 50th Anniversary of Naval Aviation Warfighting Development Center (NAWDC) at NAS Fallon, NV. Due to production delays and Covid the movie wasnĂt released until 2022. During the filming 3 F/A-18s were used for various scenes with two aircraft wearing the same numbers 00 and pilotĂs name under the cockpit. Altogether there were three aircraft used during the filming, two F/A-18Es (165636 first and then 165667) and one F/A-18F (165796) with the latter one used to film with Tom Cruise in the backseat.
