Have you been Hustled lately?

With a plea for B-58 decals sources from another modeler, I finally realized that I wasn't going to finish my Hustler as I had hoped. I sent my Fox One B-58 decals out and got a few missiles in return. It was the Harpoons that got me to thinking about reworking this B-58 of mine for a 3rd and permanent time. My idea is a shore based USN Hustler.  ;D

I've had this kit for years! and here are it's first two incarnations. The third will be quite different. :ph34r:

Your one with jets close to one another is very surprising, very nice! :wub:

One of the greatest airframes of all time, and you have made it look better?   :wub:

Knowing what Eddie can do and has done in the past with other kits, this could prove to be very interesting.

Always thought the B-58 would be cool without underwing engines. Perhaps built in like the Mirage IV or on top of the fuselage like the Tu-22?

Thanks for the support Gents!

I tried to house them with Super Hornet style intakes with a B-70/B-1B influence, but there just wasn't enough room under that wing and not block the gear (I'll be doing this one gear up) to work out. :banghead: Believe me, I had big plans. I guess it's better that it works out this way so as to not mess with the lines too much.
Here it after a bit of sanding.


Look behind you!

Meanwhile, might as well show some photos of the B-58 at the LSFM before Ike.

In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.

I've had a chance to see the one in Omaha.  What a gorgeous bird. :wub: :wub: :wub:

The B-36 there is f'ing cool, too.  You never really get the idea how big it is, until you're standing next to the thing.

Great pics!
