Hey Paul, I got a email saying my RF-8A order had been completed on Tuesday. Does this mean it has been shipped? So looking forward to it's arrival. Thanks.

My question was answered when I went to my PO after work. My conversion was there. and on first glance it looks awesome! Great service, Paul. Thanks.

I have the Trumpeter F-8J kit in my stash.  Can I use that kit with this conversion set and still be somewhat accurate?  If so, is it the RF-8A or RF-8G, or both?

 

Thank you.

Yeah Terry. It can be done. Just sand off about a 1/16th of an inch off the chord of the tail planes and make the double hinged leading edge droops into single hinged. That'll get you pretty much there.

The J should have double hinged leading edge slats which aren't correct for any RF-8 version, though. I don't have the J kit so I don't know whether they can be backdated or not.
