1/48 ProModeler F-102A "Turkish Air Force"
This is 1/48 ProModeler F-102A Delta Dagger (Case X) with TuAF markings in 4th Main Jet Base at Murted-Ankara circa early 70s.
Cockpit modified with Eduard instrument panel and Quickboost seat.
Additionnaly I have used Quickboost resin exhaust on the rear fuselage.
Painting done with Gunze acrylics. I have used Gunze IJN grey mixing with some drops of blue paint.
National insignias and flags are from old Turquoise decals. Other markings and stencils are from kit decals and my spare box.
Final modification is Master Model's pitot tube.
Looks great! Your panel line shading provided some nice visual interest to an otherwise bland monotone scheme. Well done.
Yes you are right Greg. Without shading panel lines this bird looks too monotone with big fuselage and large delta wings.
Love the paint work. This kit needs a bit of "extra care" and you have applied it. What an excellent result!
Thanks Tom. Yeah, lover wing and air intakes area needs care and patient.
Stunning build as always, my friend...really nice job.
I love the Deuce and I'm happy to see such a nice model, with a detailed cockpit and a smooth paintwork. Since you left the missiles bay open you can think now to add some colorful Falcon missiles ...
Yes but I decided to finish as on my reference picture without missile but ready to accept them 🙂
Nice job! Revell and Monogram kits really build up nicely with a little care.
I hadn't realized the 102s were exported to any other countries.
If I am not wrong they were exported only to Turkey and Greece..
Great looking 'Deuce'!
Cool - well done (and by the way - great photowork too!)
Excellent work on this old Monogram kit Tolga.
Superb work as always, Tolga. So- Shading is pre or post or some of each?
Thank you Stan
As a matter of the fact both of them
First black undercoat, after the ADA grey applied, some lightened tones applied to some areas.
Thanks for your comments.
