This beautiful rendition of the F-8E Crusader can be configured for ground or "in-flight" display, however, the wings feature permanently deployed flaps and slats. Additionally, the entire wing is articulated and can be raised and lowered, adjusting the incidence angle for take-off and landing, just like the real aircraft. Finally, the nosewheel is in the compressed position, making this model ideally suited to being displayed "ready for launch" from the catapult! *Limited Edition of 2000 pieces worldwide* Updating . . .
