Jonathan's Entex F-8C Crusader

Spitfire versus Bf109? MiG-15 versus Sabre? Stuka versus T-34? Martians versus humans? Any pair of 1/144-scale items that were pitted against each other in mortal combat are fair game. Get those creative juices flowing ...
Runs from 7 May 2016 to 17 July 2016.

Never say never. Having a couple of incomplete GB's under my belt too, I can say with confidence that its better to have made a start than to not have started at all. I've got a soft spot for that old Crusader kit. It was the first one back in its heyday that I lashed out on the pocket money and used real model paints on. I'll definitely still be looking seeing on you completed list one day! :)

I do hope to finish the Crusader in the near future, despite it's simplicity, I like how its coming together.
I had started some Vigilantes in parallel, with the idea of making a carrier deck dio group, and they are no further along-

The Mig-19, I never broke in to so that goes back in the stash.

I got a couple of vigilantes on the go from many years ago, paused in exactly the same stage! I ordered the Retrokit cockpit set so that might get me going on them when I do dig them out.
