Hi Paperengineer - thanks for your reply . I was a silnet member since Januaru 2012.
I started to show some of my models only this week.
In Israel in the early sixties there was magazine of the air force that was issued every 3
months and a printed paper model included - mainly modified colors of wilhelmshavener
models. I never counted the total number that I build but it's above
100. Today I have 50 at least.
I wish you a sucess in your studying !

Yair

Thanks for your reply Gary .
The models that I build are only jet fighters.
The preferred era is 1950-1965 or the golden jet age.

A few details about this fighter.
In Vietnam it had the best kill ratio against the migs 1:6 !
Much better than the F-4 Phantom.
The F-8E was adapted to carry bombs and was used for ground attacks in Vietnam.
There is a famius story about a mig 17 pilot
who saw F-8 closing from behind on him so he choose
to eject leaving the mig pilotless.

very interesting information about the F-8E.....i didn't know that.

Hi YOAV - maybe you know this but in 1968 the NAVY compared the F-4
Phantom with the F-8 Crusader. Each side claimed that his plane is superior.
The Phantom had a better radar and electronics while the Crusader had a better
manuverability and could out turn the Phantom.
The Phantom had another pair of eyes of the navigator.
In youtube you can find the movie that describe it.

Hi CMDRTED- Some years ago I saw in one of the sites images of. the hobby model cutlass.
Because I already build the plastic model and I saw the imperfections I never dare to build
It. Even the canopy is not in the right proportions and the model needs a through repaint as
the line details are not accurate.

While it is a nice build, flaps never go to an "up" position. Pre-takeoff, they would be in a down position.
