New RF-8G pics

Recommended Posts

Here's some quick pics of the new RF-8G set, mostly to illustrate the different configuration and the various ECM bits included.

 

Different camera bay window configuration, solid nosewheel instead of spoked, the horned nosewheel yoke, and the additional prism shaped camera windows and anti-collision beacons ( these will be cast in clear). No two G's appear to be set up the same way, so you'll get enough parts to "have it your way". Up for order in a day or so.

Very nice, Paul. Is there any chance at all that you would consider these conversions in 1/48? In combination with David Newman's conversions, Gator fans would have lots of variations to choose from. Oh, and how about an early Vought seat, too.

Woo Hoo! (does happy dance again...)

 

I knew a -8G was in the offing, but i thought it would be months away. Nice to see its coming in quick succession.

Order for the G placed and receipt received from Paul - I'm sure tomorrow is too early to start watching the mail box but probably will be looking anyway for Eli's decals - Building both a 1/32 F8-E CAG bird and an RF-8G both from the 1968 Ticonderoga CVA-14 Viet Nam cruise.  I was ships company from 66-69 and it will be so cool to have models of two birds I saw every day.

It should be noted that they have all the other F8 models available also - does anyone have access to an F8 Corrosion Manual?  They show EVERY stencil mark on the bird, along with font, type size, color and location.
