OK, I’ll play along! Monogram 1/48 scale F-8 Crusader
July 31, 2014 in Aviation
Inspired by the last few posts, here is my Monogram 1/48 scale F-8 Crusader. I used the Cobra Company landing gear set and resin ejection seat, some foil from a wine bottle to make a simple seatbelt harness and I used stock decals that had been in the box a little too long (I bought this kit in 1999 and have been working on it off and on until I finally finished it last year).
Its not my best work and I humbly think the posts before this one are way better executions of the same kit, but I still had fun finally getting it finished and it looks ok on my display shelf. Besides, it is always fun to look at an F-8 and hopefully more Crusaders will find their way to this site soon…
