    I was at the book store today and saw in an aircraft magazine that the VFA-106 F18C's are doing a commemorative paint scheme. They are using navy blue and white from the Hellcat. Looks really good! I'm not much into modelling modern aircraft but I think I'm going to pick up a 1/72 F18 and model this version with the new paint job.

    Here's a link with a few pictures if you're interested...

    It's just too bad all aircraft have to be so Invisible! I liked the old dark blue color. Being an old Navy man.
