This is one of the few and first books currently available with fair information and up close pictures of the US Navy's new Attack Fighter.
The book does a great job of clearly addressing the needs of scale modellers and enthusiasts,but obviously as it was one of the first books, it does lack some detail and could be the victim of becoming obsolete as the Super Hornet evolves in service life.
Photos are a little small for superb reference, but are clear, text can be repetitive of captions and lacking in stats and detail.

Overall four stars, it is still a pricey book, you may want to wait for a Squadron Walk Around series book, but if not, this is definitely the book to have to detail your Super Hornet model.
I'd suggest combining this book with combing periodicals such as Airforces Monthly and Combat Aircraft for more up to date information on squadrons, carriers, weapons loadout and theatres of operation.

Super Hornet Detail and Scale 26 Dec. 2010
By cpt matt - Published on
The Super Hornet F/A - 18E and F are newer, bigger versions of the F-18 "legacy" Hornet. The Super Hornets may look essentially the same, but they are larger, carrying more weapons at a slightly greater combat radius than the original versions. With the retirement of the F-14 and E-6, the Super Hornet will be the Navy's fighter, attack, tanker, recon and electronic warfare plane.

Published in 2004, this is a great book for modelers, but as the author points out in the introduction, since this plane is so new coming off the production line, it will see many changes going forward, so this book may soon be obsolete. Not too many models have been made of this plane yet for that very reason - there will be many changes to come.
Squadron probably will come out with a Walk Around version of the Super Hornet, but until they do, this is an excellent way to see the new F-18's up close and personal.

The photos in the Detail and Scale series books are smaller than those of the Walk Around series, but have very good, crisp shots of everything you'd want to see - radar, cockpit, wheel wells, engines, wing folding mechanisms and the air frame from all angles. 14 pages are in color, 7 of those are of the cockpit. Very little in the way of facts, dates, statistics or capabilities of this carrier plane outside of what you find in the captions. Four stars overall since the photos are small, some of the pages are word for word same as the captions, something you cannot afford to do in such a small book.
A "Super" Book on A Truly Super Aircraft 15 Sept. 2013
By Nutrition Man - Published on
Verified Purchase
This publications provides tons of great details on the most advanced multi-role fighter / attack aircraft in the world (with only the F-15E Eagle coming close). As the backbone of the U.S. Navy's carrier forces, the Super Hornet is on the front lines of our global power projection. And this book does an excellent job of showing the Super Hornet's many excellent features.
