1/72 Esci F-8H

Gallery Article by Paul Fernandez on July 2 2018



This is my recent build a 1/72 F-8H of Philippine Air Force. I converted it from Esci ''E'' model by modifying the nose cone to make it more flatter and straight and adding the radar blister on the vertical fin.

I used Blue Diamond Decals set 2 for the logos and roundel and just printed another body number to represent #304 which was flown by General Ming Sigaya (was Captain then) in Dallas, Texas. I used Mig acrylics to paint it and Coastal Kit Display bases for the circular base and hangar. Very minimal weathering done since it was newly painted. I added four AIM-9B and 19-Tube 70 mm (2.75") rocket launcher for the armaments.

General Ming was very happy to see his #304 again.

Thanks for looking.
