Kitty Hawk F9F-8P Photo Cougar
Here’s my take on the Kitty Hawk F9F-8P Cougar (1/48th). I originally was going to do the VF-61 fighter version, however, I messed-up by adding the intake spltter plate, before I realized that this version did not have the splitter. I found the problem when I examined the decals, then found that the markings were designed for the non-splitter airframe, hence the decals would not fit. Thankfully, KH included several different markings, so I opted for the photo bird.
