Product Details


The F-8 Crusader is a single-engine aircraft carrier-based fighter aircraft built by Chance-Vought and was a replacement for the Vought F-7 Cutlass. The first prototype of F-8 Crusader flew on March 25, 1955, manned by John Konrad. During its maiden flight, the F-8 exceeded the speed of sound. The F-8E was the last Crusader variant produced. The F-8E is an air superiority fighter version for the French Navy. There were 42 orders by the French Navy for use aboard new carriers Clemenceau and Foch. The F-8E has a crew of 1. It has a maximum speed of Mach 1.86 and a ferry range of 1,735 mi. It has four 20 mm Colt Mk 12 cannons in its lower fuselage and 125 rounds/gun. It has eight Zuni rockets in four twin pods. It has four AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles and two AGM-12 Bullpup air-to-ground guided missiles. It has an increased wing lift and an added boundary layer control system and enlarged stabilators.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
