Revell 1/48 F-101B Voodoo
Built this strictly OOB several years ago. Always liked the looks of the Voodoo which was part of the Century Series of jets used by the USAF., in the 50’s and 60’s. The Voodoo was usually armed with two externally mounted Genie nuclear tipped missiles as well as two Hughes Falcon rocket powered missiles. The Air Defense command utilized this A/C as a counter to what was believed would be formations of Russian bombers sent over Canada to the US during a nuclear war. Several variants were produced including a reconnaissance version. The Voodoo was purchased after the Air Force realized it’s F-102 was lacking in performance and the F-106 was well behind schedule.
I don’t remember having any great problems with the kit, and the cockpit is nicely detailed. Only issue was with the exhaust shrouds which don’t align well.Used the kit decals which went down well and for some reason or another I struggled with the overall color which isn’t correct. The version above represents a Voodoo from the 18th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, stationed at Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota. Tag to all you iModelers, it’s now Voodoo week.
