F-102A Delta Dagger (USAF) – 1/72
The Convair F-102 Delta Dagger was an interceptor aircraft that was built as part of a project of the USAF defenses in the late 1950s. Entering service in 1956, its main purpose was to intercept invading Soviet strategic bomber fleets during the Cold War. Convair built 1,000 F-102s.
My collection is composed mainly of propeller airplanes, but I do have a passion for jets of this era, so I intend to build some other ones.
Construction was almost OOB, with just some increased details. I used my standard scheme with Tamiya putty, polyester primer, paints and clear from Dryco, and a simple base made of foam. I didn't intend to do a diorama, so I inserted the tractor and the fire extinguisher with 2 figures just to improve the look.
Finally another colorful model on my shelf, which was so fun to built.
