HASEGAWA’S TRUSTY 1/48 F-8 Crusader mouldings have been re-boxed in a special limited edition offering from Eduard. Besides the original Japanese styrene, Kit 1110 provides photoetched brass and pre-coloured metal details, tape masks and a resin ejection seat, main and nosewheels. If one has never built an F-8 in this scale, opening Eduard’s box reveals a surprisingly long fuselage, and the detail is generally impressive.

Notable features include separate control surfaces and the option to show the trademark variableincidence wing in raised or in-flight positions.

Five colour schemes are represented via the stunning decal sheet, which typifies the high-visibility markings of the Vietnam War era…and there are two MiG-killers among them, including F-8 legend, Commander Dick Bellinger. For further details visit: www.eduard.com
