Vought F-8E FN (P) - Hasegawa, 1/48

Recommended Posts

Hello every boy,

 

It's been a looong time I didn't post anything, but that because I'm a very slow builder ... here is my attempt at making a French Navy  Crusader, the complete name is F-8E FN (P). P stand for "Prolongé", prolongated ... New ejection seat, various aerials (one behind the cokcpit just went awol during photo session), the new Sherlock threat detector atop tail, Etc.

Paints are Gunze acryls, and the lovely Aires Matra 55 Magic missiles.

This peticular aircraft saw action during the Yougoslavia  CAP operations.

 

Hope yu'll like her, all comments and critics most welcome.

 

Best,

Very nice. I have always liked the look of the French F-8s in the dark blue-grey.

Excellent weathering.  Made shades of blue and gray going on.  Perfect.

Excellent build!!

 

Pardon my ignorance, but what are the differences between the French Crusader and a regular US Navy one?

 

Thanks!

 

Best regards,

 

Tato
