    @RhysBrown the link wasn't working but I looked for pictures and yeah I see, so that's why the wasp has those airbrakes there, that's cool.

    The rudders also deploy with the flaps.

    @RhysBrown I never heard that, although I've been studying aircraft since I was around 7 and me being 14 means I've only been studying them for around 7 years, I don't know every little detail, thank you for telling me that, I'm trying to learn as much as I can so I have a better chance of getting into the airforce.

    @Redtangodown1 you do realise the super hornet uses air brakes? They are set up like the Mirage 2000. Two boards are placed aft of the cockpit on the wing root structure both on top and below, the rudders also help in the same way they do with the F-22.

    Also I have a burning passion for aircraft and get annoyed when people get them wrong and I try to correct them and if I don't it just lingers in my head, sorry for the misunderstanding.

    @N1KO yes I see that, I thought you were saying the legacy hornet and the super hornet were the same, also I just realized It autocorrected rudders to funders, I meant to say it uses rudders to slow down.

    @N1KO lol ikik. By the time I realized it it was already too late and couldn't bother rebuild everything base off the blueprint of the super hornet.

    @Redtangodown1 The shape is basically that of the legacy hornet, this build used the legacy hornet's orthographic projections to create this super hornet. It looks like a legacy hornet but with rectangular intakes and bigger LEX's. The super hornet has a dog-tooth on the leading edge of the wing while this has the plain ,legacy hornet, leading edge. The horizontal stab and the humpback are also straight from the legacy design.

    @N1KO as this brown said, the super hornet has a rectangular intake and is bigger than the legacy hornet, and it's front wing structure thing is bigger as well, not to mention the legacy hornet has an air brake while the super hornet uses the funders to slow down.

    This plane has 3 of the things I look for when downloading aircraft, a good flight model, an ejection seat, and a cockpit with glass, great job.
