    Great job Rob, the riveting is beautifully done!

    Hello guys! Lost a bit of mojo with this build because of some details (not necessary details in a modern world of 3D-technologies, actually) are boring me, like this: My father saying me that it’s not a good idea to cut an intakes, my wife said the same (but provide me her best sanding stick) and I nailed it: I like this shape, but it requires a bit more work (not put my hands on splitter plates, yet): Cheers!

    Thanks for this kind of words Ben, I’m really appreciate it! There’s a some Voodoos on eBay for about a $45, so it’s not a big problem to find another one I’m thinking of the second to buying soon. Yes and no The designer did a great job with this kit, but I can’t see the problem to re-arrange some details on sprues and make one with the proper wings for the RF- and A/C noses, and other for the B-version with double-seater nose. And speed brakes, why not to do it with two separate details?! I sanding an intakes just now, so I’ll post the results in few days, I think. Thanks for an advice, I’ll think about it later. My idea is to copy the kit detail from the clear sprue and attach it later. But your solution is easier, I need to try it! Thank you! Cheers!

    Yes, the Voodoo has an unique shapes and any subtle changes in model design become very noticeable (the Hasegawa’s one is a bit thick, I think); the Kitty Hawk’s one is the best, in my opinion (because of the large scale, maybe). Thanks Rob! I mispainted an intakes and I can’t repair it now It is not so visible, fortunately. Thanks guys, hope to reshape the wing intakes today, let’s see

    Looks like a Voodoo mania starts here This kit reminds me a Hasegawa's one which I built a twenty years ago... Not the bad one, but FROG's looks much better and so authentic in silver molding! Give it to me! As for a number of mistakes I've made with this current build, it looks like I can buy the Kitty Hawk's kit again (for a bargain price), probably! Look: Combat Models 1/32 F-101C Voodoo

    Sorry, I misinterpreted your message. OK, it’s not so complex I think... Thank you for an explanation, as always Cheers, friends!

    I’ll cut the masked area and will put the «shaped» front part on its place, right? In this case I don’t need to do this complex shape manually, by sanding and scribing / riveting. Sure thing, thanks!

    Thanks Ron! @bentwaters81tfw, it’s enough to represent the A/C intakes?
