Hi Guys at Aussie Modeller International
I recently re-visited the Posted Comments re the 2009 Anzac Day Canberra Flypast with mention of Super Hornets.
You may be interested to know that Hasegawa (Japan) has released Model Kit 01986 F/A-18F RAAF (1/72 Scale).
(The Kit has Decals for RAAF 1 Squadron and 6 Squadron Super Hornets.)
The reason I have an interest in the Kit is because of a Photo I took of F/A-18F A44-208 at the Avalon Airshow in March 2011. Hasegawa selected the photo for the Box Picture for Kit 01986, and recently sent me two Kits.
The URLs for the Photo of A44-208, posted on JetPhotos.net and Airliners.net are:
The Subject Model Kit is a Plastic Model Assembly Kit, not a complete Die Cast Model of RAAF F/A-18F Super Hornet.
The Box Photo shows 1 Sqn Rhino A44-208 (Decals supplied for A44-208). The Kit also includes Decals for A44-207 and A44-212 with 1 Sqn markings, and A44-215 with 6 Sqn markings.
Reference the 2OCU Hornet 2009 Canberra Anzac Day Flypast Photo (Posted against Hornet A21-14). Three URLs for the photo are:

I went to Airshows at Temora on 17Mar12 and Wollongong on 06May12 plus a Canberra Airport Open Day, and got lots of photos. (I am currently swamped with 2012 aircraft photos, but I am still editing and Uploading to MyAviation.net (with over 9000 photos posted.)
(Incidentally, I have stopped uploading to ANet due to unacceptable Rejection rates. I am still uploading to JetPhotos.net, having 1000 photos Accepted by the site as at mid-May2012. My 11,000 posted aircraft photos [on 3 websites] have been viewed over 7 Million times!) I also contribute to ADF-Serials.com.
(I am going to UK on 28Jun2012, on a Torii Aviation Tour, returning 19Jul2012. The Tour goes to weekend Airshows at Duxford (Flying Legends), Fairford, and Farnborough, with visits to aviation museums in-between. I am flying on Singapore Airlines A380s - four flights totalling 40 hours).
I trust that this info is of interest.
