Hasegawa 1/72 scale conversion
Grumman F9F-8P

Grumman F9F-8P

HyperScale is proudly supported by Squadron.com




Here is my 1/72 scale F9F-8P. This model was converted from the Hasegawa's F9F-8.



All conversion parts were scratch built.



The equipment and camera bay were thermoformed from plastic sheet.



Landing gear doors were made from the thin metal of a beer can!

Most markings were applied using the air brush paint by masking with the oil-base paint finish.



All the outdoor photos were shot against the natural sky.
