F-101B Voodoo Kitty Hawk 1/48
Having seen Ravi’s @blackmopane, superb example posted in the last few days, I thought I’d dig my feeble effort of this kit out and see if it was worth posting here.
Why did I buy/build this kit? I think there were three reasons.
First, Kitty Hawk’s F-101A kit was getting a pounding from some quarters and I wanted to see if it really was that bad.
Secondly, when I built this Voodoo, about four years ago, I had a Canadian drinking mate, who was also an aviation enthusiast, and the kit included RCAF markings.
Thirdly, I’m a Jimi Hendrix fan, and Voodoo Chil’ is one of my favourite tracks.
Forearmed is forewarned, and I when I built this kit I was expecting trouble. Actually, with the knowledge gained from others, I didn’t experience too much trouble.
I went much too heavy on the blue tinting on the canopy, though.
But I remember being quite pleased with the jet exhausts.
Anyway, I finished it, but was not very happy with how it turned out, and the photos I took at the time didn’t do it any favors. So I put it away and forgot all about it, until today. I borrowed George’s Motorcycles premises and took a few pictures, and here they are.
Thanks for looking and happy modelling.
