Default Witty WTW72008-05 F-18F Super Hornet "Black Lions"

Is this Witty Super hornet any good? Accuracy and quality wise...

Witty Sky Guardians (Series 1) WTW72008-05
McDonnell Douglas F/A-18F Super Hornet
USN VFA-213 Black Lions, AJ200, NAS Oceana, VA, 2006

Witty WTW72008-05 - F/A-18 Hornet Diecast Model, USN VFA-213 Black Lions, AJ200, NAS Oceana, VA: The Flying Mule

I'm just doing some research now and I'm hoping to get your opinion.

I have it and I like it. This livery was a little short lived but I think its a good looking one. I removed all the weapons, left clean pylons. I recommend it! (the Dragon one says VF-213 when it should be VFA-213 so don't go for the Dragon one if you happen to find it.)

I also got it, although really cheap, and really like it. I have quite a few WW Super Hornets and especially for the price those went for they are amazing.

I have it as well, a very nice model IMO that looks even better "in the flesh" than it does in the pictures. Onmark still has them at a great price and their shipping is usually very reasonable....

Can't go wrong with Witty's superbug. Good specimen for the price. I have no qualms buying all the liveries i want instead of waiting for HM's version. I'd imagine the HM superbugs will be retailing for about 90-95usd when it comes out. The F16 and hornet is currently at 85usd.

I think HM Superbugs have gone to the back of the queue behind the ever expanding F14 production line!

Thanks for your opinions guys. I couldn't find any reviews on Google for this livery so your opinions helped and I stuck with this choice.

I won it for $30 US. Is that a good price cheesecake?

That's a great price for this model. You will be happy. I paid just slightly less for mine but that was some time ago.
