I thought now would be a good time to start my Revell kit, as it's been beckoning to me since I received it. This, in conjunction with a Trumpeter MiG-15, will be (I hope) two of my entries in the convention in Omaha next year. The hunt has already commenced for some suitable AM for it, probably basic stuff though, as kit appears to be pretty darned nice as is.

The chosen scheme. Unless I find something that I like a whole lot more, this is it. (Excerpt from this Histoire & Collections book.)

To be right (in my view), the F-8 is really not complete without weapons, so I've assembled five of the kit bombs for it.

Wing assembly is proceeding OK, with some of the guts now being added. Overall, fit seems to be real good so far.

After the Tony, this will seem like a breeze to paint.

Nice to see one of these built. I have the Hasegawa A8 to build at dinner point so it'll be good to see the comparison between the two.

Shaping up nicely, and quickly.  Those bomb fins look out of the 70's.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

If you mean thick, while they do appear that way, they're also twice as large in the photo as they really are.

Interesting that you say that, as I also have an A-8 Hasegawa kit here, just spotted it a few days ago. Perhaps I can do a few side by side comparison photos. I'll give that some thought.

Looks like I goofed, big time. What I thought was the A-8, was in fact the F-8, and it, unfortunately, only contains the remnants of this project, most of which was lost in my move a couple of years ago; so no fuselage, tail surfaces, wings or the Eagle Parts 'pit set.
