GRUMMAN F9F-8 COUGAR
Wing span: 28 Inches
Designed By: Paul Del Gatto
Description: The famed Navy 'Blue Angles' Flight Demonstration Team have thrilled millions across the nation with their precision formation flying in Grumman F9F-8 Cougars. Powered by a Pratt 8, Whitney J48-P-8 Turbo-Jet engine which delivers 7,200 lbs of thrust, they have a top speed in the near-sonic range. The armament has been removed and ballast substituted in these demonstration aircraft, primarily to maintain static and dynamic stability. The color scheme varies slightly from other Cougars in regular service.

The blue finish, with golden yellow and silver trim make a beautiful model on the flying field. Art inspiring design to fly, the scale Cougar presented here is both easy to assemble, adjust and operate. It has been carefully designed and developed around the Jetex Scorpion 600 and Spacemaster 600-A jet engine units. With these powerplants, flight performance is excellent, inspiring to see.

CONSTRUCTION: The construction procedure is easy to fallow and carefully explained step by step. Begin by familiarizing yourself with the design plans and the die-cut parts, examine the kit carefully to see that all the parts are included. Remove the die-cut ports from the sheets and trim any rough edges smooth. Group the die-cut parts for use on the fuselage, wings, stabilizer and rudder for your convenience as you assemble the model.

FUSELAGE ASSEMBLY: Study Step 1, Step 2 and Step 3 of the fuselage assembly detail sketches for the proper order of assembly. Pin the center keel die-cut 1/8 sheet parts to the plan, starting with K-1 and K-2 across the top of the fuselage, K-3, K-4, K-S, K-6, K-7 and K-8 which farm the outline of the rudder, and K-9.
