Hello once again
fellow modelers. I have my third submission to the ARC site. Hope you like it.
This is a Vietnam era Aircraft
that I chose to do from Nas Jacksonville Florida where they where
stationed at in the late sixties and early seventies.

is a F-8E Crusader from VF-62 "The Boomerangs". This kit was built
around 2002 and was a Monogram kit. It was a decent kit to build and did not
have to many seams to fill. I found the decals for this kit
from Aeromaster Decals. The aircraft was Painted in gull grey and white for the
underside. I added some zuni rocket launcher packs on the wings and some Aim-9
Missiles to show the variety of weapons the F-8 could carry. I am happy with the
way it came out even with some flaws here and there. I am always learning as I
build and hope to get to the professional stage of model making one day. I
hope you enjoy my model.
