For this Group Build I will try to build the 1/72 Valom RF-101G Voodoo, in Kentucky ANG markings. The Kentucky ANG flew the RF-101G model (basically a converted F-101A) between 1965 and 1971 and went on deployments to South Korea and Japan during those years. Mine will be 54-1462, as seen here at Itazuke AB (now Fukuoka Airport) in 1969: http://www.gonavy.jp/bbs1/img/6245.jpg The Valom kit looks quite decent in the box, but also a bit challenging. It comes with some resin bits like the exhausts and nose cone, and some PE parts like seat belts, antennas and the gear doors. Hopefully it will all work out al right. So far I have glued the cockpit tub and the seat together: These have now some primer on, so painting them is the next step.
