Late in 2017 I tried my skills on the ESCI-FJ-2. At first I had a good going but desaster struck me around X-Mass. But see how it happened.

The ESCI beast:

I got my hands on a NA-drawing of the FJ-2:

When I compared the drawing with the Esci Kit it became clear that much sweat had to be spent on this project.

There is a good side (tail hook topcs) who shows what you get building it out of box- simply ugly.

Because the Esci blue Fury kit was very britle I used their F86-E kit which is comparable and not so prone to breaking apart. (I believed)

I started sawing and sanding. First the vertical tailplane fin has to be moved foreward.

The Fury is mighty cool. I have two of the Grand Phoenix FJ-4B kits, as well as the Hobby Boss example. I'll be watching this, for sure.

I was going to procrastinate tonight, but decided to wait.

The ECCI- kit was very brittle and after this was all I could get out of it, I threw the fuselage away.

Now I took the good ole Monogram Sabre and started again. This is what I got from this.

I think I made the right choice.

Staying with Revell now I took the slatted wings from their Sabredog. It was tedious to saw the arester-hook and catapult hook compartments but scratchbuilding is for the fearless.

As usual the Marines received the planes which were rejected by the Navy. This means a bare metal finish is the paint of the day. I used Revell Aluminium for the ground color.

I added some black to the aluminium color and tried to do some panels.

Next disapointment were the ESCI-decals. Sure they were very old. They won't come off the decal sheet. When 24 hours weren't enough I dried the sheet and scanned it. Printing the sheet  on clear decalpaper I I won the fight.

A few parts had still to be cemented on to the kit than it was finished.

The wing tanks are scratchbuilt because I ran out of Esc-itanks. Maybe they are 1-2 mm on the short side but this don't bother me.
