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[...]
The excellent Revell F-101B new tool kit first appeared in 1993. Can you believe how old it is now. This one I've had this long as I bought in Hobby Haven in Milford, Ct when it was first released by Revell. I was TAD at Sikorsky Aircraf[...]
Hello, Just finished up the Monogram kit, I do like some of the 1950s , aircraft. the model was painted with modelmaster paints, and a black box cockpit was added , I used the internet to get some good photos and the help of a good friend. I us[...]

I built this one a couple of years ago. Wow, what a big airplane the F-101 is! Makes the F-105 look little! And those tiny wings. I have always liked the Voodoo, in some ways it is more distinctive looking than the more famous F-4 Phantom which [...]
This RF-101C Voodoo was originally built several years ago. It got damaged a while back when I dropped another model on it while re-arranging my model shelves. The horizontal tails, one of the dive brake doors and one of the flaps were also knoc[...]
I really gotta stop this stuff and get started on my D-Day build! I finally got around to building (and actually finishing) Monogram's F-101B! Now I like the Phantom, and the Demon is interesting to look at, but I think McDonnell's best looking[...]
