Default New VFA-41 Black Aces CAG Livery - (not a model)

The VFA-41 Black Aces CAG F/A-18 has just received a new livery. Looks like a huge Ace logo on the topside. I think it looks awesome. Perhaps we can recommend it to HM if they do a -F model.



Here is what it looked like before.

damn! there's always at least one pooper at every party but hey, we all jealously guard our freedom of speech with religious fervour. but i'd like to see the faces of the squad members when you call them coast guard boys. definitely an instagram moment, that.

Both Super Hornets in the pictures are nice looking but I would personally love to see the second one with the black around the canopy made!!

Also, if you happen to own the CW F-14 Pukin Dogs, then having that scheme on the F/A-18E is a must for HM to also produce!!

Is there a topside pic of this? Its interesting.

This looks a lot like the red, white and black Canadian Hornet in a way.

A, C, E = single-seaters.

B, D, F = two-seaters

EA-18G Growler = only comes in two-seater.

Not that simple but only a little more complicated.

A,C = Single seat, original (Legacy) Hornets

B, D= Two-seat, original (legacy) Hornets

E= Single Seat Super Hornet

F= Two-seat Super Hornet

G= Two-seat electronic warfare version, "Growler"


Anyways, as for the VFA-41 scheme, I am not a fan. I feel like they tried too hard to make something unique and it just looks strange.
