Super Hornet and LaGG-3

Whether it's a modern jet fighter or a WWII propeller driven fighter aircraft, both are deadly.

The 1/48 Scale Lavochkin LaGG-3 "Japanese Army" Limited Edition WWII aircraft, while decorated with the Rising Sun symbol of Japan, the IJA the original aircraft was constructed by the Russians.

Somehow the Imperial Japanese Army managed to get its hands on one and tested it for combat use in 1942 until the end of the war.

A small aircraft, the LaGG-3 was formidable with its impressive airspeed, deadly weapons and maneuverability.  The single pilot fighter was a barebones aircraft designed for fast and deadly air and ground combat.

Like all Hasegawa Hobby Kits the LaGG-3 is finely and historically accurate sculpted, easy to assemble, paint and decal using the very comprehensive instructions and can be constructed with landing gear up or down.

The 1/72 Scale F/A-18E Super Hornet "VFA-27 Royal Maces CAG 2015" Limited Edition fighter jet model recreates the famous aircraft in use for fifty years.

Based in Naval Air Station Atsugi they are considered some of the most reliable, effective and versatile aircraft in the U.S. arsenal.

With 20mm cannon and fighter capabilities for both air-to-air and air-to-ground combat the slender and long aircraft is loaded for combat, has extended flight tanks and all the latest and greatest high-tech equipment to take on any contender.

Available in two decal versions, the Super Hornet model is impressive both in its interior and exterior.

Paint it, put it together and decal it and you'll have a very realistic model that will impress both novice and seasoned model makers.
