F7U-3 Cutlass



I built this for a former employer who worked on the Chance Vought production line for the F7U Cutlass in the 1950s.



This is basically a stock Fujimi 1/72 Cutlass kit with minor weathering and pencil accent of the kit panel lines.



The display base is a scribed, painted piece of styrene sheet, and the entire rig was mounted in a clear display case.

Wow! A Cutlass! I never thought I'd ever see another one of those again. I slapped one together as a kid, this brings back some memories.

Make me nostalgic, you bastard! >H^D> My buddy in elementary school had an Aurora 'Gutless.'

This one's a Fujimi kit from the mid 1980's - tres nice on fit and detail. All I had to do was snad flat spots on the tires.

God I wish I had all those old Aurora kits again.
