A reissue of the JWings 4, but I think with not only repaints but new munitions produced using a new detailed process.

Expect new colour options and maybe special?

IMHO their Hornet is nicer than Revell's. The Prowler & Viking are very good too!

Wish they would produced them as kits like their F-4S.

This is the only game in town for the Viking, other than the impossible to find resin kits, which were very challenging even to advanced modelers.

The prowler is much better than the DML kit, with much more overall detail and refined shape. Definitely worth picking up.

The F-18s are also outstanding with correct wing shapes and nice overall detail. I agree that these are actually nicer than Revell, but not as cheap to buy.

Every once in a while one of the usual ebay sellers puts them on sale and you can save a few dollars/euros/pounds. The only drawback with all of this is that they come painted and it's a pain to strip it off to re-do.

Algernon has really improved their quality as of lately. This set, the if series, and the dive bombers were beautifully done. The Helldiver is a masterpiece and very inexpensive to attain. Let's hope they keep it coming with some new subject matter!
