I'm trying to work up a small set of goodies for F-8's, nosewheels, leg, antennae and such, and if I can I will do up a set of proper Y racks, I just need to make more hours in the day. have another rather nice conversion in the works too, so lots to do

 We ran out of photoetch for the RF-8's, more is on the way so it won't be long.

Sorry about that...I don't buy as much P/E up front as I used to as we can never tell how well a particular model will sell.

Excellent. Can't wait for my set in the mail. ;)

got mine today and fondled it carefully, the RF8G that is, but i'm still "confused" on which basic Crusader, the E or the J version (i have 'em both) i should be using in respect to the larger horizontal tail??

 

Any final solution?

 

TIA

Jack.

Jack, from what I've read here on LSP, either will work. But the "E" is the best starting point......Harv

Harv, thanks for the info, but somewhere i learned that the RF versions had the larger tailplane planform, and that would be consistent with the "J" version release.

And indeed at first i also thought the "E" trump release would be THE kit to start this conversion with.

 

anyhow, looking at my building pace, this conversion will be completed when the proverbial hell freezes over........ :doh:
