In the latest film Top Gun: Maverick, fighter pilot Pete Mitchell is regarded as a daredevil who performs daring manoeuvres at super-sonic speeds in his F/A-18 Super Hornet. In his role, Tom Cruise shows everything the Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet of the U.S. Navy has to offer in terms of flight and combat performance. The miniature model shows amazing details of the film models. The cockpit could be used by miniature pilots like the original. The fuselage features missiles and tanks as external loads. The landing gear is also reproduced down to the smallest detail. Assembling the models is easy thanks to the illustrated instructions. The required accessories such as glue, brushes, paints and decals are already included. All parts are made of robust plastic. However, the challenging assembly requires some experience in this type of craft. Therefore, the kits are recommended for children aged twelve years and older.
In Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise, in his role as Pete Mitchell, is a pilot with iron nerves and incredible skill with his F-14 Tomcat fighter plane.
