The XF-88 was designed to fill a USAF requirement for a "Penetration Fighter", a new class of aircraft for long-range escort of USAF bombers. Two XF-88s were ordered (S/N 46-525, 526) in 1946 and the first flight was on 29 October 1948. [...]
Bentwaters, AFB, England, Sept 1960 to July 1963. 91st Tactical Fighter Squadron. The Voodoo is such a cool, unique design. The 100, 101 and 105 are my favorite century series aircraft, as they had such character - unlike almost all modern USAF [...]
I've had this Kitty Hawk kit since it came out a couple years ago, but it kept getting put on the back burner due to other projects cutting in line. Well, I finally decided to finish the Voodoo, especially since Kitty Hawk has decided to release[...]

The 'old' 48th scale Monogram, which, in my mind, still stands the test of time for accuracy, ease of assembly and, especially, price! This one was OOB some years ago and done with (naturally) MM NMF metalizer's in the rattle cans. At least it [...]
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 m[...]
My friend Tom Cleaver already posted an article about Kitty Hawk Voodoo.
As I can be pretty stubborn (there are a couple of subjects you won't change my mind about unless you're able to hypnotize an anvil), I decided the warnings I read about th[...]
Started this over two years ago. Got a bit distracted trying to decide what to do with all the raised panel lines that got obliterated by sanding down the seams, and other builds seemed like more fun! In the end, rather than sanding the whole th[...]
