I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Conbination of bits from F-15E and F-18F to produce another elegant design (IMHO)

Sweet!  :-*

Has a bit of a MiG-29 vibe to it. Like one of these "artist's impressions" of Soviet prototypes you saw in books when all they had was a top view from a satellite.
Cheers,

So I started an F-18L project and got wondering about the actual designation was it F-18L or FA-18L?   And would that lead to F-18LA, LB, etc?  Or maybe change completely as in F-18LA to F-19A,  LB to F-19B etc to avoid confusion between F-18A and F-18LA, etc.

Unusually,  a Finnish Hornet had some extra graphics at the NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days, last weekend. The Finnish Air Force posted some photos:
