Amazing work. Those early Crusaders have a look that suggests lots of 'oomph'. To have so compellingly miniaturized that oomph factor like you did is nothing short of fantastic.

Great looking builds - the last of the gun-fighters...

Like that race car analogy, they look fast sitting on the ground. Some planes just have that look that they are meant to perform with that oomph. I wish I could have seen one in person or flying. Have to go to a France airshow for that. I know there are two in the U.S. that are flyable and privately owned, but they haven't flown for some time. Thunderbird Aviation owns them. They are ex Philippine AF planes. I was told the navy doesn't allow their aircraft to be flown once retired.

Thanks, that site is a bit out of date, I have to update it. Still accurate to some degree, just been lazy.

A great couple of Crusaders. Love the different metal tones.

Thanks, I'm still learning the metal tones thing. Used to always just paint the whole plane spray silver.

Thought I'd add two more better poses, the first one is a bit blurred towards the backround, my camera sucks. The second is my F-8 family including the big cousin, the Super Crusader and Vought's mule. '899 and '444 just won a bronze at a recent model club contest.
