F-102A USAF 54-1399 short tail. A Revell ancient one.
This depicts an early F-102A as delivered to one of the first operational squadrons to receive them, the 327th FIS. It had the original shorter tail fin, and unmodified intake ramps and speed brakes. I added a pitot tube to the nose added a generic ejection seat and used the extra exhaust and wing tanks from a F-100 kit. The decals which almost were a disaster, was a mix kit, spares and home made. I thought that it would be easier then it was to find reference photos, the few I found I’ve included.
