  1. Hello Britmodellers! Finally, the work is done. There are so many discussions over the Net about this kit, but I’d like to say that the kit is well-designed and great. With a help of my friends here, now I can post the final results. Thanks So, the starboard side: The port side: The belly: I spent a lot of time on reshaping an intakes, as the Kitty Hawk provides us the wrong ones: The kit parts are great itself, an afterburners looks fantastic: The landing gear is well-detailed, too:
  2. Hi all, I’m happy to report the roll out of my latest build, representing McDonnell NF-101A Voodoo 53-2438 which was used in the late fifties and early sixties as a test machine at Eglin AFB, Florida. At the date of the build she was being used to test aerodynamic “shapes” for the Hayes Industries Prometheus supersonic drone programme. As a very early Voodoo – one of the first pre-production batch - she was simpler than the later fighters and thus for me it meant leaving out some aerials, nose cannons, etc. Other than this she is straight out of the box with the exceptions that I
  3. This GB is nearly at the half way mark and I haven't joined in yet - time to do something about that. I had various options but felt drawn to the Kitty Hawk F-101B kit and the RF-101B option. I feel the need to build something big and this fits the bill. There's also a bit of nostalgia involved - I remember building the Matchbox Voodoo as an RF-101B when I must have been about 8 or 9. Here's the KH kit. I've also got an Eduard zoom set for the cockpit and Eduard steel seatbelts. Apart from these and a couple of simple corrections it'll be more or less OOB. A lot has been said about
  4. Hi gents, I’m currently building the Kitty Hawk 1/48 RF-101C Voodoo (a smooth and pleasant ride despite what’s being said on certain forums). My intention is to do an Vietnam-era replica with one of the early test camouflage. During my research, I noticed that Voodoo of that theater often carry a different kind of aux tanks, slimmer and longer than their European counterparts. Since the RF-101s in Vietnam originally were based in Japan, were these long tanks associated with their base in Japan ( just like the Misawa tanks on the F-86 during the K
  5. F-101B Update sets, Seatbelts & Masks 1:48 Eduard for Kitty Hawk Kit The new tool F-101B from Kitty Hawk was welcomed in this scale. Eduard are now along with some sets for it. Get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. Interior Set (49941) This set has one pre-painted fret, and one brass one. You get cockpit details
  6. 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 al
  7. Hello Britmodellers! After more than 15 years I feel an overwhelming desire to build a model again... Let’s start with this one: For this build I chose Tamiya and Gunze tools. I think it would be an interesting work and yes, I’m a hand brusher The work starts from the cockpit. I decided to use a PE parts in combination with the decals. This is my first work with PE and it was a great experience, all is done quickly and fun: Another view:
  8. Being a big fan of the USAF 'Century Series' jets of the 50's I was delighted when KittyHawk models announced their new 1/48th scale McDonnell F-101A/C Voodoo and 15th July 2014 my kit arrived thanks to the always reliable MJW Models. I started it immediately with lots of enthusiasm but it turned out to be a hard slog for various reasons so now six months later I can report it almost finished. Two have already been featured on BM thanks to Jurek Greinart and Sebastien so I am not the first. As always I am not a 'premier division' scale modeller, I tend to work in fits and starts based on enthu

  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Many thanks must go to Darby on this one for his advice and heads up on some tricky parts on this model. So here is the Revell 1:72 F-101 Voodoo in Oregon National Guard scheme. Lesson learned with this one..DO NOT use acrylic varnish on enamal it ruins a prefect paint job!
  13. Hi, here's my latest build, built for a GB over on Flory Models. Nice kit, not great instructions. built SFTB with Gunze paints and a Mig Ammo grey washUntitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr . Lost a bit of mojo towards the end, but that's down to me. Anyway thanks for looking. FF
  14. So I had started a Kitty Hawk Voodoo (there: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234961637-kittyhawk-f-101-a-voodoo/?hl=voodoo)and wasn't satisfied with how it was turning out (and as the poets from Nashville Pussy sing, it's everybody's fault but mine, of course (*)). So I decided to trat the poor thing with Jeremy Clarkson favorite surgical instrument (a hammer) and reduced it to a pile of very tiny little bits. Then I bought another box and, in the wake of my Phantom FGR2, had a go at it. I started last Thursday and tried to improve from last time. Soooo... I decided to
  15. Have been quietly working on the new 1/48 Kitty Hawk F-101A/C Voodoo, bit of a challenge to say the least but satisfying for all that, least until I decided to apply the main colour. Despite the instruction in the kit which show a shiny NMF I decided to try to match the dull aluminium colour that most photos taken of Voodoos at RAF Bentwaters show back in the early 60's. I read somewhere that the aircraft were painted in 'Corroguard' and the nearest Humbrol equivalent is HU56 Aluminium so I set up the airbrush, stirred and shook the tinlet of paint, and thinned it to a ratio about 1:10 with
  16. 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_
  17. It started as a way of getting the modelling mojo back after some kind of saturation with the Shackleton. Bad move, bub... It started so well: The fit of the center wasn't perfect, but seemed good enough: Then I tried to put the cockpit assembly inside the front, and things went ape digestion by-product. The tub, once in place, made the two fuselage parts to spread. I didn't want any of that, so I had to remove the alignement pins in order to get the tub in place: But the tub didn't go all the way to the top of the fuselage, and prevented the wheel well to sit in its right place.
  18. 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
  19. Resin F-101B Voodoo Cockpit Pavla 1:72 for Revell Kit Revell rereleased their kit of the Voodoo last year. This strange yet likeable aircraft was a two seat derivative of the Voodoo designed around the fighter intercept role. Key features of this aircraft were the two seat cockpit and extended afterburner sections which 'hung' out of the rear of the aircraft. This set offers a significant improvement to the kit cockpit. Moulded in light grey resin, the tub has noticeable improvements to the side consoles including throttles and more detailed switch panels. Both front and rear forward pa
