I added resin seats, made some homemade number to get Pettigrew's mig killer, added some resin burners, added CE intakes, and nautilis scab plates.

That's a fantastic job, Rob...simply a dynamite build. You should have taken ALL the photos outside, it shows off your detail work so much better. Nice!
Is that an F-8 Crusader I see over there?

Phabulous! And a spectacular paint scheme, too.

Magnificent MiG killing beast, Rob. Excellent work!

Thanks for the comments...That is another F-8 back there. That one was the first one I had built. At the time...there were no decals, so the trip[ tre was homemade. i might have a pic or two of it lying around.

Rob, Thank you for the nice compliment on my F8F. I looked up your site and found this F4. Very, very nice, and BIG. I really like the markings for VF-114.
I built a 1/48 F4 for a former RIO with these same markings except it was #205. It was from his wife for his 50th birthday. He sent me an accident report on this a/c over Viet Nam which culminated in he and the pilot bailing out. Both went into the water and both survived. He got tangled in the shrouds and almost got pulled under.
I belong to a lunch group and one of the persons that is part of the group is a former CO of KItty Hawk during the seventies. Captain Marland Townsand. He commanded during a difficult incident. A real Gentleman.
You appear to tend toward USN and USMC a/c. I also like these builds.

Thanks for the comment...I do enjoy attaching a kit to a real life story or individual if I can...It adds a little more to the build.

Me again looking through your stuff. I love this.

Really great job. I am a former VF114 RO and flew with Bob Hughes and left the squadron just before the shootdown with Pettigrew, McCabe, Hughes and Cruz. this model is truly exception and the deatail down to the "Bu" number and side number is accurate. Truly outstanding.

Thanks for the comments Jon, I glad i did the jet justice.
