    Just a few of my suggestions

    100 Years of Naval Aviation F/A-18's





    VX-31 'China Lake' F/A-18


    VFA-146 (I know it was mentioned but particularly this aircraft's paint)


    VFA-106's commemorative paint job for VFA-15

    I really love the Navy Jack on the speed brake


    These are just some rough ideas, not sure if any of the hornets photographed are F/A-18A's instead of C's but you get the point

        What do you think guys?
        The same goes and for the F-14 (when it is released)

          Oh c'mon Wags....you HAVE to include an RAAF F/A-18C skin surely. We operate 54 A's, 15 B's and 24 F's. So whilst its not the C models, surely this should put us in the running!!

            If ED has enough energy drinks and other resources I'd love to see skins for all current Legacy Hornet operators. Considering all the upgrades that have gone into As/Bs I don't think it is too much of a stretch...As opposed to making a C skin based on an F squadron...*cough*

            I have faith that the community will pickup the wishlist and make all the Legacy skins if required tho'.

              This is precisely why they should (and most likely will) focus their efforts elsewhere. It saves them time and money, and we get a Hornet sooner rather than later.

                  Once again I know near nothing about the RCAF...sorry Canadians. Do you Canadians just repaint the demo jet every year I assume, because wow that is a beautiful hornet!

                    HN-431 with a lynx on the stabilizer:


                    And then there's "Kreivi von Rosen":
                    Lynx (looks more like a doberman to me) on HN-424 is emblem of the WW2 era fighter squadron 24 while lynx on the HN-431 is emblem of the fighter squadron 31 (fighter squadron 24 was renamed to fighter squadron 31 after the war).

                    In addition to these 3 there are 2 more birds with squadron markings.

                    HN-411 with fighter squadron 11 emblem on the nose:


                    HN-421 with fighter squadron 21 emblem on the stabilizer:


                    I'm not 100% sure but i think these 5 planes are only Hornets with some special markings on FiAF.

                      I was hoping VFA-97 and VFA-125 would have made the mix. But then I found out 97 went to supers and 125 was decommissioned when I was there. I was told they just stood back up as a 35 RAG.

                        Royal Malaysian Air Force skins would be cool... Semi fictional as they fly the D model but the Dark grey is soooooo Cool!
                        They used to be Gunship Grey but recently they toned down the greys after the upgrade to match the Su-30MKMs.
