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
PJ Productions 1950's Naval Aviator.
