  1. Hello to all of you.Here is my latest.The awesome RF-101C VooDoo.I love this AC.But the kit is another thing commpletley.A really basic and hard kit to work on.You can see that on the following youtube full video build link
  2. Hello gents, Let me say it straight. I waited 50 years for this kit. The RF-101 has been one of my favourite airplanes since, as a schoolboy, I saw one roaring over our home in Saigon like a giant lizard. So when last year Kitty Hawk released their 1/48 Voodoo, I knew the wait was over. Of course, the kit is not perfect. People in forums complained about the multiple inaccuracies, the terrible fit, the bucketload of putty needed,… but then … this my chance of a lifetime to build it. So I took the plunge and do what we, old timers, have always done: buy the kit
  3. Finally finished, the 1/48th Kitty Hawk RF-101C Voodoo as 56-0166 which on 27th November 1957 was flown by Capt. Ray Schrecengost from Los Angeles to New York on Operation Sun-Run, an attempt to set three new transcontinental speed records. I had to build this kit! I have waited over 30 years for a 1/48th mainstream kit of the incredible RF-101C Voodoo, an awesome supersonic photo reconnaissance aircraft which overflew Cuba, North Vietnam, and the Taiwan Straits. The mid to late 50's were exciting times with the 'Century Series' fighters setting new records seemingly all the time a
  4. Hi all! Having kicked off my next Thud build I wanted a further project - an OOB ideally - to run alongside and to brighten the darker hours when the Thud might not go as planned. I weighed up the FJ-3D and the RF-84F but opted for the Voodoo, and a machine that I had seen at Bergstrom AFB, Texas in 1980 when it was still a gate guard there. SHe went on to be a Vietnam vet. She is now in the NASM, or at least her nose is. I had thoughts of a Sun Run machine but they seem well accounted for via the old Hasegawa kit and so - with difference being my guiding principle - I've gone for
  5. One of the first US reconaissance planes in SEA was Project Field Goal RT-33. I bought Sword kit to build it as Field Goal. Obviously, decal depicts this plane: I'm not sure, that this is realy Field Goal one. As far as i know, Field Goal RT-33 was initially based at Clark, then after crew training and plane modernization were completed, moved to Udorn. Combat missions were flown from Udorn, later from Don Muang. But at the background are clearly visible tales of 16 FIS F-102's, that were based in Naha. I also heard, that Field Goal RT-33 flew with fake RTAF insignia
  6. Hi all! Well, I managed to get as far as finishing the first Voodoo :). It has been a struggle, often through my mistakes, but I think I've wrestled her into something resembling the target machine. The background is in the WIP: She really was a typical Valom kit in terms of the build - simple on the face of it but with small, subtle aspects to catch you out. I am very pleased with her, though. What did I do/use?. Well: 1. Kit - Valom RF-101C 1/72 2. Aftermarket - a modified Aires F-101B cockpit, Armoury Wheels set (AW72321), Pavla seat. 3.
  7. 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
  8. Hi all, As I am getting through my build of this machine reasonably quickly I need to start thinking about markings and the decals to draw/produce. THis machine carried two as far as I can see but the subject is not a specialism of mine sso I'd appreciate your thoughts on what these two are. Firstly the machine: then specifically the two I need: 1) under the canopy and 2) on the nose. Thanks a lot. Martin
  9. I say chaps, what a Wizard wheeze! Check out Mr Holte's alarmingly lovely 1/72 Voodoo camera bird at Cybermodeler Online today -and look at the red widget on his scalpel handle in the second pic...jolly good idea, eh?! Now where can I get my feelthy hands on some...? eBay and Amazon come up empty, despite using various search terms. Am I missing summat? (Usually, YES, and it's probably blindingly obvious...)
