  1. Here is my latest foray into the world of Old Monogram. It is a 2007 boxing on the F-101B Voodoo. This kit has long been on my list of 'wants' and has been curiously hard to track down so when Ian at Kits for Cash had it at the Southwell show for a princely £9 I bit his hand off. When I opened the box, not only were there two sets of canopies there were decals from two different boxings of the kit. I had stocked up on a Master brass probe, some Quickboost intakes and a gorgeous set of Caracal decals for a Four ANG machines prior to my purchase so they had to be used. I decided early in the build not to re-scribe the panels lines just to knock back the raised lines with some light sanding to enhance the smooth and sleek lines of the original. This had worked well for my F-102. Sadly after all the anticipation, I really didn't enjoy the build. I expected some fettling and filling but this had to be done in industrial proportions, the whole wing/fuselage/ missile bay just fitted where it touched and I got fed up with the whole process. After languishing on the Shelf of Doom for a couple of months I gave it another chance and this is what I came up with. O-70445 of the 179th FIS, Minnesota ANG. Both the kit and the Caracal decals were a joy to work with and even Photobucket has co-operated today. I had planned to get another one to do as a Texas ANG bird but I doubt I'll bother, So on to the F-106.... Thanks for looking Andy
