1/72 Academy F-8 Crusader, 422d Fighter Weapons Squadron, USAF, Da Nang AB, South Vietnam, 1969 Well then, certainly not one for the purists.... I absolutely love the Academy Crusader - must be one of the best '72 kits ever made. I have built 4 of them now, 3 of them in their traditional grey and white. I do like throwing my own ideas into the mix now and again and have wanted to do a USAF Crusader for ages. So, here it is...! Depicted as an aircraft undergoing test and evaluation but on the front line of CAS missions in South Vietnam - why let the Marines have all the fun...!! Carrying a full load of Zuni's and Snakes. I have used etch for the seat handles and added a strike camera between the ventral fins. Decals from the spares box. I am really pleased with how this has turned out - I certainly haven't seen another one in this scheme before. Airbrushed freehand again with Tamiya acrylics. I hope that I don't upset too many of you....! Cheers all, Phil
Good evening guys, i m back with another mustang! This should be last one for some time, but one never knows... This baby was built as part of the Mustang STGB here on BM. The kit is the well known P-51D Airfix 1/72, decals Kit´s World, exhausts Quickboost (adjusted from Spitfire IX round exhausts), wheels from MPM A-36 and scratchbuilt cockpit, wheel wells and some more details around the airframe (special antennas on underside, position light under air intake). I have to say the decals were a bit disapointment - the "Gunfighter" letters are too big and the white on "Gunfighter" icon is totaly off... But other than that it was fine. For anyone interested, WIP thread you can find here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234966654-p-51d-gunfighter-finished-hjgb-wont-make-it-this-time-sorry/. Some shots now - i was lazy to wait for tomorrow, so i took some shots with "night" background Thanks for watching guys and all comments and tips are appreciated
