  1. Hello, Britmodellers! Well, it’s time to build something from a Century Series again... I’m looked for a pleasurable and straightforward project and choose the «Deuce» from MENG! I’m not a big fan of the Gentleman Scale, but this kit draws my attention. Let’s look at the box: The box is sturdy and filled with a well-packed plastic parts: The first sprue (A Parts) with a fuselage halves: It’s a big bird, even if it’s a 1/72nd scale! The second sprue (B Parts) has a wings and weapon bay doors: The C and D (x2) Parts sprues has a cockpit and weapon parts on it: F Parts sprue with a Case XX wing tips: The G Parts is a protected sprue with a canopy and landing lights parts: An instruction sheet looks very informative and the decal sheet is colorful and well-printed. I want to build a 196th FIS bird in an ADC Gray scheme with a California markings: Thanks for looking!
  2. Finally finished, this is a 'refresh' of the Monogram 1/48 Convair F-102A Delta Dagger. This is the original kit released in 1990 and has the Case XX wing, being a fan of the Convair Deltas I would have built this soon after I purchased it so it has been around for at least 20 years. I did post this in KUTA VIII earlier this year but didn't finish. So, on to the photos: Not too upset with the result however a few parts are missing; the nose probe, the IR sensor, one of the Falcon missiles and the rocket tube fairings on the missile bay doors. All the major parts of the aircraft were stripped back using Fairy Power Spray, given a dusting of Halfords grey primer, then mostly airbrushed with Model Master 1731 Aircraft (ADC) Gray. Almost all other colours were brushed using Vallejo paints. She is marked as the 496th FIS Commander's aircraft based at Hahn in FRG in 1961. Basic stencils and markings from a very old Superscale F-102 'Complete Stencil Data' and the unit markings from the 2002 rebox. All decals went on really well however I don't think that the black/yellow band on the nose is the correct way round! The whole thing was sealed with a coat of Humbrol satin varnish. The end result is better than I expected. The model is huge and shows how large the Delta Dagger was! The AIM-4D Falcon missiles are the originals, one was lost during the build so the centre forward pylon is empty. Michael
  3. She is a poor faded old gal, an original Monogram 1/48th F-102A Delta Dagger with the Case XX wing and I put her together in the early 90's using the kit decals and painted using one of those Humbrol small spray cans which were popular back then, was supposed to be FS36473 'ADC Grey' but I suspect was something quite different. Whatever, the sum of the parts was good and she has been on display in my cabinet until recently however with seven new builds this year I need the space and she has been ousted and is now poised on the edge of the 'shelf of shame'. So what to do? Well, I could bin her, however the original Monogram kit fitted well and all she needs is a little filler. The decals are shot but being Monogram they refuse to peel off. I think I did good work with the complex armaments bay and thanks to the brittle poly cement that I used all the parts have fallen out without too much persuasion. My plan is to attack her with Fairy Power Spray and lots of sanding paper and see what she looks like after that. I do have decals for other Delta Daggers, or I could complete her as a PQM-102A drone, or even as stored in AMARC back in the late 80's. I want to get this done quickly and the end of January deadline of this group build suits me perfectly, I want to start a big project after this. On to the photos Michael
  4. Postie kindly dropped the latest addition to the stash on the doorstep this morning. Si
  5. hi guys is it only me or it is difficult to find reference photos of the F-102 with open access panels? I have the Detail & Scale book but it only has 2-3 photos of the radar and weapon system equipment in the nose so i was wondering if any of you have any photos of open panels from the legend as i am planning to build one with as many panels open as i can find thanks guys!
