Monogram 1/48 F-8E Crusader
February 3, 2014 in Aviation
This Crusader is of “Double Nuts” flown by CAG of CVW-5 aboard USS Hancock (CVA-19) in 1966.
The kit is a 1/48 Monogram F-8E. I dropped the flying surfaces and raised the wing section. I also used AeroMaster decals,” Colorful Crusaders II” # 48-404. I did it as it is a multi colored scheme and I thought it looked good. The kit is a very good out of the box and is very nice to build. It is another of the fine Monogram kits. Granted it has a few problems and is not of the Hasagawa quality but it was, is, and always will be, a very good Monogram kit.
