F8U Crusader Variant by HandofManos F8U Crusader Variant by HandofManos
1 of 4 variants of the F8U Crusader made for :iconmihoshik: It has a more powerful engine, a different (2x30mm) cannon layout and is a dual seater (only 1 was ever produced). Had fun working on this one.

Beautiful effort - this based on a Corsair sir?

I believe both aircraft used parts. The corsair being the smaller version of the F8 Crusader :)

Tell me, have you ever heard of Sentinel Chicken? He does lots of aircraft profiles but I don't think he's on DA.

No I cannot say the name rings a bell. He might be here under another name though. I have several artists that I watch who make great profiles like these.

Oh man, I love the Crusader, such an underrated jet. The only thing I was never fond of on it was the wing assembly, how it tilted before take-off. Always thought that was a bit quirky and odd, but I suppose it makes it more loveable too.

Certainly. In this case a variant of what :iconrobis89: mentioned correctly the jet known as the last of the classic Gunfighters.

The Last of the Gunfighters!

The F-8 is one sexy jet and you made the dual seater look downright awesome.

Wonderful work.

To elaborate, this was is based on a Spey powered version of the Crusader offered to the Royal Navy by Short in cooperation with Vought.
