Andy Firth [ ANDYMODELLER ] does a quick build of how the Academy Crusader goes together with the Aires upgrade set.

Thanks for an excellent review of the Academy F-8E Crusader. Glad to hear that the Academy kits are of such high quality and detail, as I'm moving my jet building back to 1/72 scale. My 1st kit is the Academy F-4B Sundowners.

Looking forward to seeing the F-4 Joel, she'll look great in the Sundowners livery.
