  1. Hi all! Having kicked off my next Thud build I wanted a further project - an OOB ideally - to run alongside and to brighten the darker hours when the Thud might not go as planned. I weighed up the FJ-3D and the RF-84F but opted for the Voodoo, and a machine that I had seen at Bergstrom AFB, Texas in 1980 when it was still a gate guard there. SHe went on to be a Vietnam vet. She is now in the NASM, or at least her nose is. I had thoughts of a Sun Run machine but they seem well accounted for via the old Hasegawa kit and so - with difference being my guiding principle - I've gone for this machine. The only photo I can find is this: "6 April 1959: At Edwards Air Force Base, in the high desert of southern California, Colonel Edward Hamilton Taylor, United States Air Force, set a Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) World Record for Speed Over a 1000 Kilometre Course of 1,126.62 kilometres per hour (700.05 miles per hour),¹ flying a McDonnell RF-101C-75-MC Voodoo, serial number 56-0119." I know that it had a white tail and my assumption, to which I am happy to be corrected, is that she had International Red/Orange bands around the fuselage. Otherwise she was pretty plain. To me, though, she is not a machine that I've seen modelled. I will use a Valom kit with some resin and brass extras, plus some home produced decals. I don't recall a Valom Voodoo on BM so I hope it will be interesting to some. Launch will be tomorrow when I will wash her and get some of the basics together...... back soon Martin
  2. Hi all, Another foray in to the files. These few are from a visit to Bergstrom AFB, Texas, close to Austin, Texas. It was (now closed) a base that hosted regular air force Phantoms of the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing as well as Air Force Reserve Hercs. More of the latter later. This post centres around the Recce Phantoms. As with many of these posts the images were taken early in the morning, offering a range of colours and warm tones. I'll be back soon with a few of the Hercs. martin
