1/48 Monogram CF-101 Voodoo.
Seemed like a good opportunity to re-shoot the Voodoo along with Blenheim. This was the close out scheme for the CF-101's. The decals are by Leading Edge The color is a self produced version of Alumi-Grip AA 92-A-312, using Model Master paints, referenced from the Canada Colors Guide paint chip publication. I built this kit quite a while back, and in the mean time a Voodoo Grey color was produced by Model Master, but it didn't match the chip.

A very nice job indeed...I like it.
Thanks Craig, glad you like it.
Love the outdoor photography! The snow and birch trees make a great backdrop and the early morning/early evening with some clouds make a nice diffused light. The VooDoo still is a sharp looking bird, too bad no one has resurrected one for the show circuit. Where's the Blenheim though?
Thanks Josh ! This area where I live is great for natural settings
Hello Phil...a fine model for sure and it looks like you nailed that base color. Good job on both the model and the photography.
Thanks Jim !
Phil, you got it! Right down to the Canadian paint.
Thanks Bernard ! Canada developed it's own military color standards system early on. Some were based on the FS standard, some were not, such as this Voodoo color. I. P. M. S. Canada gets high marks for developing their paint chip catalog, and if you don't mind mixing the colors, results speak for themselves.
Phil, I figured you'd have to mix your own. Waaay back along the polystyrene trail, that was the only way you could get something similar to what you THOUGHT was on the plane.
We owe a debt to those who went beyond, and catalogued the colors so we'd have them before they disappeared, or changed.
We're better off from their efforts.
I think the MM dropped Canadian Voodoo gray from their line, with some oth er colors. Gotta love them beancounters.
Yeah ! I can't get Metalizer paints anymore either : can't be imported into Canada.
You might check out Vallejo metal acrylics
Phil, good looking all around. wonderful camera work.
" It looks cold there" !
Thanks Terry ! Sure 'nuff 'twas cold me son------
Nice photographs, nice finish, nice markings, just nice!
Thanks George ! It was nice to get a re-shoot set up.
I love me a Voodoo Phil. That is a fine looking example there. Nice work and the photography really rocks! 🙂
Thanks Gary ! The Voodoo is one of my faves as well. It's just got that look. I did the Revell 1/72 kit as well in the same Scheme, and another one with the B & W 416 squadron scheme. I think it's in the Count the Maple leafs article.
You are welcome Phil. Here's my take on the RF-101B Monogram kit:
Very nice Phil the Monongram kit still looks good. Natural Light and background looks gives a great effect. Congrats.
Thanks David ! The Monogram 1/48's of the F-101 and 106 were tops in my book.
Wow! Awesome. In the header pic I thought it was a real plane! Great work!
Thanks Darren, glad you like it !
Nice work - interesting effect on the NMF under the tail - how did you achieve that effect? (always looking for something else to try!)
Thanks Greg. The tail end was done with BMF, brushed and washed with a combination of graphite ( just plain ol' ground up pencil lead ) and thinned flat black. I had a good photo of that area to work from.
Great work on a great pane.
Thanks Robert !
With the recent Voodoo postings here lately, you guys may be convincing me to get my Monogram 1/48 Voodoo out of the stash pile... Yours looks very realistic. You have done a wonderful job with it. Looks very cold outside too... I like the background for your photo ops. Well done all around sir !
It was actually the recent Voodoo postings that but the bug in my to do a re-shoot when I took the Blenheim photos. Thanks Louis !
Very nice. An RCAF Voodoo is on my to do list
Thanks George and good luck on the build !
Monogram, always good. This is a big model in scale 1/48.
Working on one at this moment in demo colors.
You did a very nice job. In the "war"color scheme.
Regards, Dirk, The Netherlands.
Thanks Dirk ! It is a big model but not cumbersome. Good luck on your build.
