Hobby Master 2010 Blue Angels F-18 Hornets

I was ecstatic to learn of the upcoming Hobby Master Release of the 2012 Blue Angels.  As a child i have dreamed of owning a complete set of Blue Angels models.  Hobby Master has done a fantastic job with their F-18 mould.  Still, there is a details to be certain of before they produce this model, so until we see a pre-production picture, there is no guarantee of a fully accurate Blue Angel.  Given the way they do business, I am confident Hobby Master will pull through with the greatest Blue…

If anyone has any information or…
