New Review: Crusader Air Intakes (for afterburner cooling)

Recommended Posts

Product Image

Extreme appreciation to Eduard for their having once again provided a sample copy of a long-awaited product, the F-8E Crusader, and the usual wave of thanks to the IPMS USA leadership for ensuring I received it!

This upgrade provides additional detail for the recently re-released Hasegawa F-8E crusader under the banner of Eduard, in the form of a hollowed out intake with visible depth to the intake. Just four parts here; two very thin PE baseplates with rivet detail, and the scoops themselves. 

Installation steps:  drill the two mounting holes in the afterburner position on the model at the pre-located drill hole wells from the inside, then carefully remove the PE baseplates from their fret.  Dress the cut marks with your favorite method, then set aside.

The resin intakes themselves require an individual to: carefully remove them from the casting web and bloc; clean up the mounting surface; then fit the two pegs through the PE mounting plate and into the spot on their model.
