This is an unassembled, injection-plastic jet aircraft model kit requiring glue, paint, and modeling tools to complete.

The F/A-18E/F is a multirole fighter-bomber aircraft developed by Boeing and classified as a 4.5th generation jet fighter. The E type has a single seat, and the F type is a double-seat type. Following the discontinuation of the development of the A-12 (Avenger II), the U.S. Navy completely redesigned the existing F/A-18 (AD type) basic design to develop the F/A-18E/F. Design changes have been made to improve its cruising range and weapon loading capacity, upsizing of the aircraft, and stealth. Its nickname has been is the "Super Hornet".

This kit from Meng reproduces the single-seat E type. A detachable pylon and weapons are included, and on-board weapons can also be selected. The flaps and slats can be installed in different positions, and the main wings can be folded; a complete cockpit, wheel wells and air intakes are provided. A U.S. Navy pilot figure is included, with a choice of two different helmets, and photo-etched parts are also included
