So I decided after really enjoying the Trumpeter F-100 I would try something a little different but again in the Trumpeter kit and I also wanted to try a 1/32 scale kit. This is my first 1/32 so we will see how it goes lol. First impressions is the kit looks amazing! Tons of detail, has 14 sprues totalling 364 pieces, 1 photo etched sprue, and two rubber tires along with a few clear parts. Gonna really slow this one down and do it right. It has foldable wings, open gun bays and a clear cowl which I think I'm gonna paint but leave off beside it. Engine detail is unreal! Heres a few pics of the kit so far [smile]

I can't wait to see this one being built.  I didn't realize Trumpeter did it in 1/32, thats going to be a big bird.  I have seen a F8F fly a few times at Duxford and Sunderland in the UK what a beast.  There are a few photo's on my flickr page if you what a look?

Ya this should be a fun one...a hole lot of engine in this thing..instructions are cockpit first but I'm skipping ahead to the engine [smile] I will post some pics tomorrow hopefully. Those pics will come in handy too, thanks! The decals provided are for French or Thai so no U.S markings so should be a nice change

Well after about 10 hours I've got most of the engine complete. Real time consuming stuff. This was my first crack at add some lines. Learned quite a bit now that its done. Will be tackling things a little different on the next one i try. For the exhaust manifolds i spray it in steel and dry brush a mix of soft pastels with brown and a rust colour which turned out not to bad.Looks darker in person. Gave a slight wash to show the cooling fins off the cylinders a bit better. Ones its mounted on the firewall i will be doing a second wash wherever its needed. Im looking forward to any tips or criticism so i can improve on this next time[thumb]. Thanks for looking [smile]

Thanks guys! Appreciate the good feedback. So yesterday i prob spent a good 12 hours at the bench lol. I gotta say after doing this 1/32 its prob what ill focus on from here on out except for a few 1/48 i got planned. I really enjoy doing custom stuff and the detail work on this thing. So i have quite a few sections ready to install tomorrow into the fuselage and finish up some detail. I have been adding lines and wires from the tanks, battery and such. Still have a few left once i install in the fuselage. I also wanted to expose the beauty engine in this thing so i cut two panels off the cowl and added some strapping on the inside and drilled out the holes.The cowl came in clear so it made it an extra pain but i managed to get it mostly done just some finishing sanding before some paint. The cockpit went together pretty good also. The kit comes with photo etched seatbelts. Heres some updated pics [thumb]
