AMS Resin 1/32 F-8 Early Vought Ejection Seat First Look
|Date of Review||July 2009||Manufacturer||AMS Resin|
|Subject||F-8 Early Vought Ejection Seat||Scale||1/32|
|Pros||Nice backdate to the Trumpeter kit||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$12.00|
AMS Resin is back with another nice detail set, this time an early ejection seat developed by Vought for the early F-8 Crusader. This would be an essential detail if you're wanting to bacdate the Trumpeter 1/32 F-8E Crusader.
Trumpeter released their 1/32 F-8E kit (look here) with the Martin Baker seat, but this nice casting will provide a key visual detail for the early Crusaders. This resin backdate from AMS Resin nails the look of the seat with the survival kit and stowed shoulder harness. AMS Resin can do some amazing casting that captures details in one or two parts that others have trouble replicating.
Recommended for experienced modelers!
My sincere thanks to AMS Resin for this review sample!
