Well, I can understand that Paul is quite busy. The part that I really want to see most are the asymmetrical Y-racks for sidewinders, etc.. No one has accurately done them in 1/32 scale. Of course other Crusader conversions and corrections would be welcome too.

Good point. The Sidewinder rails are "unique", to put it mildly. I'm sure Paul is aware of this. If i were him i'd probably be pondering how to go about casting something like that, but strictly a guess on my part. Due to its shape, not sure if you could make it a one piece casting.

If you're thinking about new parts or conversions, how about this guy: https://en.wikipedia...2000-002001.jpg

 

It's probably a pipe dream, but as a NASA and F-8 aficionado I'd love to see it, certainly the prettiest paint scheme to ever adorn a Crusader.

That is an interesting F-8-- no doubt. I'm just interested in some corrected parts to build a correct F-8E/J fighter. The asymmetrical Y missile racks are absolutely needed. Corrections to make the nose more round would certainly be welcome too. Hopefully someone will do them someday.

Looks like only one Y rack was required at certain times:

Here is another F-8 with just one set of launchers on one side, with LAU-33:

In view of Paul indicating that he was contemplating some F-8 detail parts like landing gear and Y racks, I'm curious as to whether there is any news or updates on this-- such as what will be offered, when it might be available, etc.?
The announcement of new F-8 Mig Killer decals by Zotz has me excited about starting an F-8E build!

Again, any new developments on these F-8 parts? Are they still in the works?
