I think you're the first guy here on LSP to kick one of these things off. I have the conversion myself and its next in line once i finish my Tamiya F-14.

 

Thanks for posting!

I was lucky yesterday to get a close look at the model at Mark's home. Very interesting project and really nice progress. The Fisher forward fuselage fit's nicely onto the Trumpy aft fuselage. 

 

I'm really curious about the rest.

That is really a cool looking Crusader Mark. I’m not a jet guy but I do like what’s going on here with the subject and all your foil efforts. . Well done and certainly a cool looking eat.

Please don’t tell anyone I was peeking into a jet build! Thanks. I need to keep my reputation. Lol.
