This new resin set from Cutting Edge Modelworks is for the Hasegawa F-8.

The parts are beautifully and flawlessly cast in the standard gray resin as all resin detail items from Cutting Edge Modelworks.  The set includes 5 resin parts.  The detail is crisp and finely detailed.  I particularly enjoyed the speedbrake bay itself....this was loaded with lovely 3 dimensional detail. The instructions are fairly straightforward but you will have to read them carefully and go very so and do plenty of test fitting.  Rushing the installation on this set can cause problems you do not want to get go slow and get it right the first time.   

I quite enjoyed seeing this set and only wish more set were available for various speedbrake and avionics panels on other jets

A very nice product and well recommended.
