Fisher Model and Pattern have released an image of their spectacular looking future release of their 1/32 F7U-3M Cutlass. This is the information put out by Paul and Susy Fisher on their website.
“Almost ready to launch! The first ever accurate kit of the radical Vought F7U-3M Cutlass in big 1/32 scale...we are in the final stages of tooling up to produce our biggest and most detailed kit ever. The cockpit and landing gear have been designed and drawn in CAD to a fantastic standard of detail, then the masters created using the highest resolution output available . The airframe is broken down for ease of assembly, and cast in our usual high strength resin for longevity. Landing gear legs are investment cast white bronze courtesy of G-Factor".

"The kit will build up into the F7U-3M , the final fleet defence fighter variant packing 4 early Sparrow 1 missiles. Markings are provided for 3 ships, both in the original natural metal / silver lacquer paint job and the later gull gray over white with colorful squadron markings for VX-4, VA-212 and VF-216 plus stenciling and national markings.4 Sparrows are included with pylons, and the elevators, speed-brakes and rudders are positionable".
"The canopy is cast in clear resin with detailed framing, even the bullet-proof glass windscreen is scale thickness,and the canopy can be positioned open to display the unique Vought ejection seat and cockpit details. Wing span is nearly 15 inches and the model stands nearly 6 inches high at the canopy bow...a very eye-catching piece!”.

Orders are being taken at the moment, so send yours ASAP to avoid disappointment. Now where is the number of my bank manager?

Well to be honest lads the way Trumpeter Kits are going in price these days this will seem like a bargain in a couple of months. I bought a 1/48 Su-15 a couple of years ago and even then it was just about reasonable, The 1/48 Vigilante which was well over priced and now the 1/48 Su-24 is just ridiculous, completely over priced. If i was going to buy an expensive model it would definitely be from a company like Fisher, who's aim is produce a unique subject that is beautifully and lovingly crafted for true modelers and who have as much appreciation for a our hobby as we do. We need more soul driven company's like fisher and less money driven company's like Trumpeter. p.s. Hats off to the new Airfix descent models for a decent price.

I saw that Su-24, which as you pointed out is also well beyond my price range. I agree that a product like this unique bird would be preferable by many, but I don't think most of us have that kind of money. That doesn't negate how cool these kits are however

I can only imagine what 1/48 would cost that's crazy
