Cutting Edge 1/48 F-8 Seamless Intake




$19.99 MSRP


Hasegawa 1/48 F-8 Crusader


Scott Van Aken

This new seamless intake is for the Hasegawa 1/48 F-8 Crusader kit. It also includes a new nose wheel well. In order to get you the near knife edge intake lip that is so common on these aircraft, Cutting Edge has molded the lower section of the forward fuselage with the intake. This means that some surgery is required and Cutting Edge's superb instructions will take you through the process so that you will have a perfect fit.

As usual, the molding is top notch and the white resin intakes mean that you won't have to worry about painting them.

If you can't fine Cutting Edge products at your local hobby shop, you can order direct from the link below.
