Trumpeter 1/32 F-8E Crusader

By Ha Pham

Some pictures of my recently finished 1/32 F-8E Crusader. Personally, Trumpeter kit is not perfect and I wasn't quite happy but we have no choice... I built it straight from the box except some of modification on the ejection seat. The kit provides a lot of weapons but unused as US Navy's flight during the Vietnam war so I chose 2 Sidewinders (2 others from spare parts). Painting was mainly from Mr Color C315 Light Grey and C316 White after some layers of primer and pre-shading. Washing was always artist colors heavily diluted with White Spirit.
