Kittyhawk 1/48 Blue Angels F9F-8 Cougar

Post by DerekF »

Not the easiest kit I've ever stuck together. It's a little over engineered in places. Finished in Vallejo acrylics and with the kit decals which were very good.

Never built this kit myself so don't know how much of a sow's ear it is, but you've definitely made a silk purse out of it. Very nice mate.

I like this very much. You must have a cracking Blue Angels line up now Derek.

Certainly do :grinning:

The F-18 was built about 25 years ago.

That really is a cracking line-up. Leave a gap for the Super Hornet to come shortly.
