Hi Folks

Another F102 from the Monogram stable of Century fighters.

 

Finished with Xtracolor paint and Superscale decals,I really like this series, easy to build and finish.

 

Cheers

 

Ian

That's another beauty, remind me again who has too much time on their hands?  I agree that the old Monogram kiis are great fun to build and are very good replicas, most of which have not been surpassed to this day.

a great looking build, with a perfect finish on the paint job. I read somewhere that the '102 was George Bush's plane whilst in the Texas Air Guard

Avoiding the draft while with the National Guard is the phrase you were looking for Fights-On !!!!;)

Sorry Camper 1.  Great looking jet.

Hello Ian,

Great build. With Monogram you can't go wrong!

From a time when air frames were spotless.

Very very nice Ian.

Are we perchance going to see a Greek or Turkish one in your stable?

Hi Richard 

I have a couple more to do and then I may do the one which is in the Turkish Air Fore museum.

I took quite a few pictures of it a couple of years ago.

 

Cheers

Very nice work.

 

I agree with above regarding the fun with Monogram kits. They were a great way to to do a fun and reasonably accurate build of an aircraft from any era.

Only when they painted them up in the Mirage colours after they were relegated to decoys Tony otherwise the usual grey. (plus a couple of later deliveries in Vietnam style camo)

Turkey with the square national markings (Should that be squaredels?) Ian but since its a 'deuce' and we can never have too many..do both :devil:
