Indeed we would. What you've posted so far is fantastical. A build thread by you would be most welcome. Also more pictures of completed models as Gerardo said.

Dear Gerardo and Elliott- you both not need. to worry as I have building diaries of my latest models.
Up to now I only raised 6 models so I have at least some more 30 to go ( all are jet fighters as this is my niche ).
I will try to make it gradually as I am very busy during the week and have more
time to respond in weekends.

Besr Regards for you both
Yair

Dear John -your drawings are looking very good !!!
The f8u like the f7u that flew before both were not considered
easy plane to bring hack on board.
I saw an f8u film that is about carrier landings with many accidents

Thanks! I need to get back to drawing some more!

Yeah getting aboard the boat was tough for allot of the second gen fighters........mostly due to poor engine performance........... but in all honesty.........landing any aircraft on a moving deck takes nerves of steel then and now. And that's in the daylight......... they do this at all hours in all weather...... I think they are very unappreciated for this and I admire the heck out of each and every one of them!

Growing up with my Dad in the NAVY and him serving aboard carriers during this time, I remember watching these birds fly all the time.......The Crusader could really move.

F-8e crusader

More photos of the Crusader.
Some of the photos are with MIG 21 ( GPM 52 ) which was most
comparable to the crusader in terms of performance.
Crusader crews had 3 confirmed mig 21 kills in Vietnam
while the rest 16 were mig 17 kills.
The mig 17 was numerically the most used fighter
by the Vietnamese and therefore most of the American kills
belong to this type.

F-8e crusader - pins story

The first F-8U to enter carrier service was the dash 1 in 1957.
During catapult launching it happens that the crusader had a roll
stability problems that in some severe cases caused the plane to
roll badly to one side while loosing height and then crashed into the ocean
water while taking the pilot with him.....
The remedy to this disturbing issue was the installing of two big pins in the
F8U-2 below the rear part that gave the plane more roll stability.
