This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The Chance-Vought F-8 Crusader was the US Navy's first supersonic, carrier based jet fighter. Armed with four 20mm cannon and capable of carrying 4,000 lbs. of ordnance including AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles and "Zuni" air-to-ground rockets, it was a very impressive air superiority aircraft. Nicknamed "The Mig Killer", it boasts an imposing combat record over the skies of Vietnam.
Academy's Limited Edition F-8P Crusader "French Navy Special", is equally impressive, with its fully engraved panel lines and rivet detail enhancing the scale accuracy. The cockpit and landing gear compartment are highly detailed and the modeler can construct the airbrake either open or closed. The premier quality decal set is precisely printed by Cartograf, to further enhance the scale beauty of this model.
