The RF-8 would be fantastic........A thought though...how about releasing the nose of your F-8C conversion with a decal sheet and call it an H or K.....

I normally don't build 1/32nd jets, just props, but I'd go for a 1.32nd RF-8. It could be done as early and late versions, too. A nice Cuban Missile Crisis/Blue Moon RF-8A would be outstanding. There are also plenty of RF-8Gs that could be decaled. I'd likely be in for two conversions, one A and one G were this to come to fruition.

 

Many thanks for listening,

 

Bob.

Would be nice to see the F-8C's clear resin (corrected) windshield offered as a solo item - need one for my F-8J, assuming that part was standard.

TA-7C/H/K conversion would be very nice, and a means of correcting the awful Trumpeter windshield/canopy hood at the same time

In fact, now that Zactomodels has discontinued their resin'n'vac correction set an A-7D/E correction set all in resin would be very welcomed. The kits are otherwise very sound, and still widely available.

An RF-8G would be cool.

Just wondered if there was any news of a possible RF-8G Conversion Set? I thank there would be a nice market for it.

I am working on the layout for the RF-8 conversion, now that the Bugatti is done I can get back to finishing several of the 1/32 conversion projects I have on the back burner.

A Twosader would be totally hot in 1/32. Only a couple newbuilds and several single seater conversions in real life.

Hey Paul, any word or progress on the RF-8G? Still a chance of it?
