Vought F7U-3 Cutlass, VX-4
This is my second model on this site, but realized before the Demon. As you can see, I am very enthusiast about US Navy aircrafts, especially during the 50s and 60s.
The kit is the horrible Hobby Craft kit. I added a cockpit resin kit from Lone Star Models and a metal landing gear from Scale Aircraft Conversions. Decals come from a Worldwide Aviation Decals sheet.
I thought I will never be able to finish this kit, many disappointments have been met all along and a collapsing motivation.
By the end, many mistakes there and there, but I can at last exhibit on a shelf this incredible bird which still looks awesome nowadays.
