  1. I thought I would start this off. I know some of you are already working on the new Trumpeter F-8. My first impression was Nice Kit. Looks like and F-8 and It is certainly big enough. I am building an inflight display. I thought that I might extend the refueling probe and maybe have the speed brake extended. If I go with the refueling probe extended I will build a drogue and hose then position a/c on approach to contact. Like I said I did not see any really glaring issues until I got to looking at the cooling vents for the forward avionics (radar) bay either side of the nose just aft of the radome. Trumpeter has molded these on a raised panel. All the photos I have found show the vents but they are blended into the fuselage in a tear drop shaped fairing. I know that the nose of the "E" model was enlarged to accommodate the new larger radar. After fitting up all the landing gear doors, RAT and gun bays doors I set about reworking the vents into a fairing. First photos are of the kit fuselage with the basic outline of the fairing marked off with tape.
