This is the Revell
F-8 Crusader converted to a French F-8 (FN). I had ONE picture to go on so this
was an adventure.
I rescribed part of
the fuselage and wings, got a new ejection seat from a Hasegawa Phantom and used
white metal landing gear to correct the original kits tendency to sit way too
low on the ground.
I used Model
Master Intermediate Blue and decals from Albatros Model works. The biggest
pain was the invasion stripes but that was accomplished with 6mm Tamiya tape as
a guide and pure guess work.
