Default What if...markings needed

Looking to do a F/A-18E or F in Blue Angel markings. Any suggestions? or has it been done before?

Here's how mine turned out. I hope to do the F version before too long. The Superbug look very good in the Blue Angels colors. Go for it!!

...Blasphemy! Burn him! Seriously, that's different, to be sure-- I'd say go with the F-16, though if you must use an Air Farce bird to represent the USN...tried & true as a demo team ride with the T-birds; harkens back to the days when both the USAF & USN both flew the F-4 until the first oil shortages/energy crises of the 70's; and the Navy acutally HAS a squadron of F-16s on the books that they fly daily...At least the recruiter wouldn't be lying to say, if you go Nav Air you could turn & burn in a viper, too...

WOW and Double WOW nice E model. Mmmmmm wonder what a A-6 would look like....Anyway, I imagine the yellow fuselage stripes would need to be longer compared to the current mount flown. Are your decals custom? or aftermarket?

Thank you! The decals came out of the Revell Blue Angel Hornet. They fit pretty much the same on the Super as they do on the Legacy.

Thanks for the info. Now all I need is a Monogram Blue Angel Legacy I can swap out the decals.

I'm finishing up a Revell F-18E in USAF markings and Mod-Eagle colors. Hopefully will post pics in the nest few days.
