Well, in my plan, they will be finished after F-4C/D painting is end. But if I can I will start F-4E/5Cs work as soon as possible.

Good to hear, I felt the same way. I recommend using some of OfficerFlake's F/A-18C .dat files as a basis to go off of. The Superhornet should be less 'slick' to fly than the Legacy Hornet. Flake's .dat's might be the closest you can get to the realism of the F-18.

As a matter of fact I was just discussing with Kujo yesterday I updated the dat because the engine was underpowered and the airframe a bit too light. I re did the dat after checking stats on wiki and engine performance and specific fuel consumption.

Here is the latest version as used by the F/X-18C Black Dragon:

To focus on my study, I hold some project that spent so long time until vacation. (Such as F/A-18 Series)

This is nice. Waiting for it :)
By the way do you know there is a Korean Air Pack consist a388, b77W and b738? Check this: viewtopic.php?f=168&t=8617
Image

More about me:
-I'm a student in an IB school (get up early, most of the time at 5:00-5:15am, commuting everyday, 1h10m from my house to school)
-My future goal in 2 years time is to be enrolled into EasyJet generation pilot training. Wish me luck ;)
