Here is my new F-8E “Crusader” in 1/72 scale.
The kit comes from Academy and is a nice basis for the “Last Gunfighter”.
I built out of the box. Colors by Gunze, Revell and Tamiya.
The display is a printed carrier deck graphic within a picture frame.
Klaus-Adler…Academy decals often have a thick backing film and are reluctant to attach to the surface of the model. It was the same with the Crusader. I alternately used softer from Tamiya (extra strong), Revell and Gunze. At some point the comrades then capitulated and settled reasonably well on the model surface.
Torsten…yeah, I’ve got the 1/48-brother in my stash too…even twice. A good old Monogram and a Hasegawa (French Navy Special Colours).
