My mojo restoration project.

 

Picked it up for about a fiver at Bolton Model Show last year.

Quite pleased with it, but some bits still niggle me.

I also picked this up cheaply at a model show a few weeks ago. Hope it builds as good as the job you’ve done.

Thanks.

 

A bit of filler needed on the underside, but other than that it went together OK.

 

Make sure that you drill out the holes for the Sidewinder pylons before you join the fuselage halves... I didn't.

Looks awesome, there's something super cool about F-8s. Kind of our colonial cousin's version of the Lightning.

 

Did they ever meet in DACT, maybe the French Navy F-8s v Binbrook's finest? - would have been some good banter at debrief. 

 

Great looking model, really cool.

Nice work  - on both!

Few things are more satisfying than picking up a bargain and then turning out a mini masterpiece from it.

Well done!

👍👍
