  1. Reini's Century Series - F-101B Voodoo The kit is Revell F-101B - the two seater interceptor variant. Really nice looking plane! The kit parts dont' look too bad at all. Decal's on the other hand look quite crispy. So I have a set of Microscale decals. Not sure yet which sceheme I will be doing. Some other aftermarket items too. Wheels and cockpit set - still missing a pitot tube. Here's one of my earlier attempts on the F-101 Voodoo - a Hasegawa RC-101C camera reconnaissance version.
  2. Hi all, My next project will be a Voodoo carrying this test gear. Is there anyone out there who knows what it is and has more information about it. I've searched the net without success so I am now hoping the wonderful resource that is BM can help ;). It is slung on a F-101A, operating out of Tyndall AFB in the early 1960s. As well as the vehicle itself any thoughts of the pylon apparatus woyld be of immense help. Thank you. Martin
  3. F-101B/CF-101B/RF-101B Voodoo (KH80114) 1:48 Kitty Hawk Delays to the USAF WS-201 interceptor programme lead to calls for an interim aircraft to be brought into service, a design programme which was eventually won by McDonnell using the original F-101 Voodoo as the basis for the new aircraft. Some major modifications were need to the front of the aircraft to accept a twin cockpit, the large radar and a means to carry air-to-air weapons. The new aircraft was designated the F-101B by the Air Force though the manufacturer suggest the F-109. The new aircraft would also get more powerful engines with longer afterburners. To do away with airframe design changes the longer afterburners simply extended from the airframe. Weapons carriage for the new aircraft was also something new, in the form of a rotating weapons pallet under the main fuselage. The original missile of choice was the AiM-4 Falcon. Two semi active radar homing missiles, and two infra red guiding missiles were carried, one each on either side of the pallet as it was practice to fire one of each at the target. Later on the aircraft would gain the Nuclear tipped Rocket the AIR-2 Genie. In this case two Genies were carried on one side of the pallet and two infra red Falcons on the other side. 479 F-101Bs were built in the end, many more then the original A and C model. The only export customer would be the Canadian Air Force who designated the aircraft the CF-101B. As a final end to the Voodoo story in the early 1970s the USAF identified a gap in their reconnaissance capabilities ad a plan was put in place to mount three KS-87B cameras and two AXQ-2 TV camera in the aircraft in place of its weapons and radar equipment. 22 former Canadian aircraft were converted to the RF-101B role. These serves with the 192d Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron of the Nevada Air National Guard. In practice it was found that operating only 22 aircraft in this role was prohibitively expensive even for the USAF and they had a short service life. The Kit This is an extension of the original Voodoo kit from Kitty Hawk, and like that kit is modular in nature. Construction does not start with the cockpit but the intakes and engines. The intake trunking is built up with representable fan front and their handed intake bullets. Also built up at this time are the other end of the engines the exhausts. There is a rear part and on engine ring to insert. The intakes and exhausts are then placed in the lower half of the fuselage centre section. The heat shielded part of the rear fuselage is also added to the centre section at this time. The top of the centre fuselage section can then be added on. At the rear the large extending afterburner sections are built up ad added, along with the rudder, tailplanes, arrestor hook, and rear airbrakes. Construction then moves onto the wings. Into the top part of the wing is added the 4 part main gear & wheel along with the inner face of the wheel well. Once the gear is in the lower wing can be added along with the air brake which sits behind the gear. As the front part of the wing also forms the air intake the boundary layer splitter is added. The wings can then be added to the centre section fuselage along with the two part tail (split left/right). The flaps and main gear doors are then fitted For those missing it construction now moves to the cockpit. The four part seats are built up and PE belts are added. Instrument clusters are built up, and rudder pedals added. The housing for the Air-2-Air ID light must also be added at this time. Even if the modeller does not want to open the panels for the front avionics bay it must be built up at this time. The front gear, and gear bay must then be built up. The cockpit section then first on top of the gear bay with the avionics bay forming part of this module. To the rear of this module is fitted the bay for the rotating weapons pallet and to door is also fitted in at this time. The instructions would have you build the missiles at this time, but I'm sure these can be left until later. In the kit there are 2 IR Falcons, 2 SARH Falcons, and 2 Genies. The complete cockpit/gear bay/weapons pallet module is the put inside the front fuselage halves, The instrument panels and coamings are then added. To finish up the front and main fuselages are brought together. If making the F-101B then the flat panel is placed under the front fuselage section, and if doing the RF-101 then the camera system is placed here. The canopy is added. The panels for the avionics bays can be added in the open or closed positions. The drop tanks can the be added. Its worth noting that the profile for the RF-101B is wrong in that it shows the aircraft armed when in fact the weapons pallet was deleted. In addition there seems to be no replacement panel for the weapons pallet if making the RF-101. Decals The decals are sharp, i register and look colour dense. One US aircraft is shown though in Grey FS16440 and in Silver? I was on the understanding all Voodoos were ADC Grey? From the box you can build one from RF-101B, one CF-101B, and three F-101Bs. The 60th FIS is shown as FS16440 but these aircraft were ADC grey FS14673. There is also one NMF example which seems to be unusual? 60th FIS, USAF 136th FIS, USAF 437th FIS, USAF 17395 409 Sqn "Nighthawks" Royal Canadian Air Force. RF-101B 59-0434 192d Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron, Nevada Air National Guard. Conclusion The plastic looks great, and aside form a couple of issues with the RF version should build from the box into a great model.

  5. I just couldn't stop myself so here is a small selection from a very early morning visit to the 11st FIS, Texas ANG at Ellington ANGB, near Houston, Texas. This was the first visit of our trip. What as start! . At that time they were participating in the William Tell event at Tyndall AFB, Florida. 58-273 you can see below was heading to Florida to join the team there. I hope you like them as much as I "doo" ;)! Martin
  6. Hi all, Inspired by the recent Voodoo build photos I thought I'd put up a few 'Doos. These are from my second visit in October 1980. As always this was an early visit to the base. Many machines were active and transferring to and from Tyndall AFB where William Tell 1980 was in full swing. Martin

  8. Hi everyone, I've finally managed to clean up the last of my Arizona shots from 2012 before I go onto the ones I took in California this year. Below are various guardians and memorials I found during my trip around AZ: F-4E Phantom II by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-4E Phantom II by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-4E Phantom II by tony_inkster, on Flickr RF-4E Phantom II by tony_inkster, on Flickr RF-4E Phantom II by tony_inkster, on Flickr RF-101 Voodoo by tony_inkster, on Flickr RF-101 Voodoo by tony_inkster, on Flickr RF-101 Voodoo by tony_inkster, on Flickr RF-101 Voodoo by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-86D Sabre by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-86D Sabre by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-86D Sabre by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-100 Super Sabre by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-100 Super Sabre by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-100 Super Sabre by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-100 Super Sabre by tony_inkster, on Flickr
  9. Hi everyone, I am currently on a Voodoo streak and would like to build a couple of F-101B interceptors as well as one (or two) RF-101C reconnaissance aircraft. These variants are covered by Revell and Hasegawa/ Frog respectively. Now, after spending quite a few hours in front of the computer there are a couple of issues that I hope some of you might help me clarify: 1. I always thought that the Hasegawa RF-101C kit is one and the same with the Frog one... Well, in a very nice article on Hyperscale someone commented that Hasegawa itself boxed two slightly different kits over the years so I am wondering: did they use the Frog kit at the very beginning and later (let's say the "Sun-Run" boxing) offered something different? Not too different from what I can gather but some tweaked panel line or camera opening?! 2. I ended up quite liking the silhouette of the F-101A/C single-seaters with their radome and everything... I know Airwaves did a resin nose for converting the RF-101 into an F-101A/C. However, as pleased as I am with the details on Revell's F-101B, the RF-101 kit(s) I find frustratingly dull and so the question here would be: aside from the two-seat cockpit and the different engines [exhausts] are the airframes of the F-101A/C and F-101B basically the same in terms of dimensions and cross sections? I thought about removing the plastic from the upper fuselage around the cockpit from an RF-101 and grafting it onto an F-101B, thus solving the single-seat canopy issue and retaining the wealth of surface details from the Revell kit in order to obtain a "genuine" F-101A/C. What do you reckon?
  10. And for number 2.......... Ok this GB is for what could be described as the start of the golden age of US aircraft design from the 50’s to the early 60’s, the “Century Series” aircraft. A bit of something for everybody here with the main types everyone knows and a couple of experimentals for those who like to be different! F-100 Super Sabre F-101 Voodoo F-102 Delta Dagger XF-103 Thunder Warrior F-104 Star Fighter F-105 Thunderchief F-106 Delta Dart YF-107 Ultra Sabre XF-108 Rapier XF-109 Sorry the F-110 Spectre was renamed/numbered F-4 Phantom and the F-111 Aardvark is a bit too late. As for the F-117 don’t ask! I think probably everyone has one of these in there stash, if not they’re easy to get hold of and there’s tons of aftermarket stuff to keep all sorts of builders happy! 1, trickyrich - host 2, Starfighter 3, jb65rams 4, hythe 5, Swamp Donkey 6, Mish 7, Julien 8, hgbn - co-host 9, Paul J 10, AndyC 11, Arniec
