F-7U-3M Cutlass Monday 11/24

Recommended Posts

Designed with a tail-less configuration in an attempt to overcome "Compressibility", a phenomenon when aircraft

 

traveling above .75 mach encounter down-wash on the horizontal stabilizer's, causing the nose to "tuck under".

 

The Cutlass was the first US fighter desgined with afterburners, and the NAVY's first swept-wing fighter.

 

I wanted to build something different......this is definitely that,  My first ALL-RESIN-KIT of a REALLY different airplane.

 

As normal with me she will be "In-flight",   NMF combination silver lacquer and aluminum foil with a

I love it, buddy, you're gonna knock it clean outta the park with this build!

I'd like to do one gear down so I can catch that distinctive Gutlass nose-high attitude when sitting on the deck.

 

Love it!

Going to be a great build to follow and enjoy. As Brian said, Paul's kits are awesome and the detail is fantastic. I totally enjoyed my Sea Fury build and the one problem I had with fit, Paul came to the rescue.

Keep 'em coming

:( :( I'm now gonna have to call Paul, order a Gutless, and make one for my case.

 

Thanks man, you're SUCH A PAL, spending MY money like that!

 

Oh, you owe me 300 bucks, plus shipping! :rofl:

Ernie,

 

    Ask Paul if he will sell you one without the landing gear for a discount and you can have mine.  They pack'em when you order'em.

 

   I want to get his F-8C conversion

 

   Will see how the Cutlass goes.

Will do, Jack.

 

Thanks, buddy!

 

How are you ever gonna cope if you model, say, a Bristol Freighter? The gear's down and welded. :rofl:

Hi Guy's,

 

    Trying to test fit the wings , spar and upper fuselage to see how this will go together.  I have to play with the parts to figure the best

 

 assembly routes since I want to use foil and paint for panels.  The panels work out to be 2 different shades of silver lacquer and 2 different

 

 foil treatments.  Can not have uneven seams with silver/foil. Did I mention this is my first All Resin kit?

 

     Also finishing up my SAM for the Vietnam G/B

 

     Will post some pics soon

 

      Thanks for checking in
