Snagged some crew for a Revell 1/32 Phantom F-4J I'm pairing with the Vigi. I think they might make it into the Vigi too (I bought some for it, anyway). Will have to craft a more Vigilante specific headrest. Dan's has it correct.

I’m planning to put guys in my Viggie as well.  You are well ahead of me in the build process so it will be interesting to see how you go about it.  Navy flight suits for that period were orange, BTW.  Boots were brown.

Orange, yep! Brown boots, tan/khaki gloves. What's that on background jets? Intake covers?

Yep.  Red cloth bags that slipped over the inlet.  No idea how they were anchored to the airframe.  Looks like the top part of the bag lines up with the reinforced boarding ladder attach point on the side of the intake.  The guy’s gloves are leather and more creamy yellow than tan - I’ve got a pair somewhere.  I don’t remember ever seeing a HATWING 1 helmet with a unique paint job.  Each squadron had its own scheme and that’s what everybody wore.  This one is obviously Heavy 7.

Man...   this is so cool.  It's like every young modeller's fantasy to be able to create any part he needs without fettling, sanding, and trying to build parts from anything he can find lying around in the garage or junk drawer.

 

My applause to you guys.

Very very cool. Where can one get this kit or is it files we need to print? Thanks. Watching with interest.

Kit is available from........me. Just let me know if you want one and I will add you to the list. $100 plus shipping.

Alright, off to the printer. Some improvement over the kit,  hopefully. With Dan's Vigi kit, the details are not its strength (and that's fine with me!). I imagine a resin printer is in Dan's plans for the future, maybe??
