My Monogram Crusaders
August 3, 2014 in Aviation
Since everyone is posting their Monogram F-8’s, I decided to throw mine into the mix. These have been posted before, so I apologize in advance for the re-runs.
First up is a Monogram F-8E converted to the later J model. I used Superscale decals to depict a CAG jet from VF-211 in 1975. Second is a Monogram F-8E, backdated to a DF-8A drone controller/utility aircraft based at the Naval Missle Center at Point Mugu, California in the late 1960’s. It takes a LOT of work to backdate any F-8E kit to the earlier A model, especially in getting the shape of the earlier nose correct. Mine is nowhere near perfect, but I was pleased nonetheless with the way it turned out.
