Detail & Scale produced its first book on the F-8 Crusader in 1988, and it was one of the most successful titles in the Detail & Scale Series.† This new work, F-8 & RF-8 Crusader in Detail & Scale, brings our original work forward 31 years, enriched with much new content, more photos, mostly in color, and the addition of dozens of illustrations and full color profiles.† The photographic collections of some of the very best aviation photographers have been opened to Detail & Scale, and several recognized experts have also contributed to this new book, resulting in a new, more comprehensive, and much larger publication on the Crusader.

  • A detailed developmental and operational history of the Crusader, a jet fighter that achieved a number of firsts and went a long way towards bringing Naval carrier-based fighters to a level equal to and in some cases surpassing that of land-based fighters.
  • A comprehensive chapter covering every variant of the Crusader produced for the U. S. Navy and Marines, from the prototypes, all of the F-8A/B/C/D/E variants and their upgraded versions after the remanufacture program, the two-seat TF-8A, both the original and remanufactured versions of the RF-8 photo reconnaissance variant, and the XF8U-3 prototype, often considered the best aircraft ever cancelled.†
  • Chapters on the F-8s used by NASA in advanced flight research and the Crusaders used by the French Navy and the Philippine Air Force.
  • An area of wholly new content is contained in a chapter on the Crusader in the Vietnam War.† A summary of how the Navy and Marines used the F-8 and RF-8 in Vietnam is provided, including a listing of every fighter squadron that flew the Crusader in combat.† A comprehensive table lists all of the F-8 carrier deployments carried out by the Navy fighter squadrons as well as the Marine squadrons that flew out of Da Nang Air Base, South Vietnam.† The chapter concludes with color photographs and full color profiles of all nineteen F-8s responsible for the confirmed destruction of MiGs in air combat.
  • A comprehensive chapter on Crusader Details, long the hallmark of the Detail & Scale brand, follows.† This chapter contains nine sections covering the cockpit, windscreen and canopy, fuselage, landing gear, wings, tail, engine, armament, and ECM equipment details.† Complete coverage of almost every square inch of the various variants of the Crusader is provided through approximately 140 high resolution photographs and illustrations (more than 120 in full color).
  • As with all Detail & Scale books, the final chapter covers the modeling history of the Crusader, from the early kits that are now only collector's items, to the gamut of kits that have been available for past half century.† The most popular scales of 1/144th, 1/72nd, 1/48th, and 1/32nd are treated as separate sections and the available models in each are reviewed.
  • This 108-page book contains over 245 photographs (more than 65 in color), 22 full color profiles and 22 drawings
