  1. My congratulations on a fine build with your F-8E Crusader. I love what you did with the weathering and the photography is well done too. I also like your choice of USMC markings. All very nicely done.

  2. I concur with the masses….well done indeed all around.

  3. Please let me add my vote! That’s a great looking Crusader. It’s one of my favorite Navy aircraft of all time! Congratulations on that beauty.

  4. Great model! I like the way you’ve done weathering.

  5. Beautifully done! The weathering is really well done, this is a landbased Marine aircraft. The squadron markings are a favorite of mine. I always thought hanging bombs on this was heresy. Just a beautiful aircraft.

  6. Excellent, down and dirty just right!

  7. Beautiful Crusader, great paint job and markings and well but subtle weathered.

  8. Thank you very much for your comments. I am glad you like it.

  9. Spectacular work! Your paint and weathering are superb – well done, sir!

  10. Great build! How’d you overcome the canopy hitting the fuselage in the raised position?

  11. thank you very much my friends.
    David, if you know the fitting of the canopy is a problem on this kit, it’s too small for open position. I used instant glue and I pushed the canopy until change it’s shape. You must have patience to dry the glue and the canopy stay in place.
    Sorry for my English, I hope to be understandable to you

  12. AWESOME !!!!!!! I really like the panel line shading. Excellent work Sir !!!!

  13. Very nice! Great weathering and detail work.
