1/72 Unimax US Navy F18F Superhornet, VFA 41 (Black Aces Squadron)
End of February is the perfect time to me to end this month with this collection that I get few weeks ago. Unimax produced the target scaled model that I want to collect. F18F Superhornet from VFA 41 Black Aces Squadron US Navy. Well about the finishing and workmanship this model I think is not much better than Witty Wings Brand Hornet Fleet Collection. I think some of you maybe agree with my comment right?. Unimax need to do some research and research before come out their product to market. Come on Unimax.. Witty Wings and you come from same country man. Please do better next model ok.
