Project status Hasegawa 1/72 Vought F8E Crusader

The Hasegawa 1/72 Vought F8E windshield and canopy framing is painted, I sanded/filed the ejection seat to look more like a Martin Baker Mk 5 or 7, need to dress it up with identifiable parachute box, face-curtain handles, center or side handle, 02 bottle, etc. Just like that one I scratch built, uh, 25 years ago 🙂 Maybe just copy it :^) It WAS based on the Famous Aircraft Of The World F8 book’s drawings…, The Y rails, well, maybe measure on the Heller fuselage or another Haseegawa one, or the FAW drawing :^).

Its foolish, I’ve got all but 5 or 6 pieces attached, the decals are done for goodness sake… Oh, and I lost the starboard all-flying elevator but made a new one from a chunk of styrene. Sheesh. Ought to take a picture.
