F-8J Crusader

August 23, 2016 in Aviation

Good afternoon from a cold and damp Middle Earth.
Well here t’is after eight months on-and-off the bench, my Hasegawa 1:48 Crusader. Now before I go-on, as I was editing the pics for size, I noticed that I’ve forgotten to add the IR Sensor on the front windscreen but I know where it is and I’ll sort-it next time I’m in the ‘cave’ !!

What can I tell you ?, well construction was no problem throughout although on this kit, some of the detail particularly around the dive-brake area was almost none-existant which I’m guessing points to over-use of the moulds.

Just want to publicly thank Frank Cronin for sending me the decals for this build without hesitation when I put out a cry-for-help here at iModeller… Cheers Frank, really appreciate it.

Thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment, as ever happy to take any criticisms, comments or questions.
