Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

This is the easy to build F106 Trumpeter. I use the MR Paint ADC Grey for painting and the marking comes from Xtradecals.

The WIP (in french) can be found here:

Superb Dart there and looks great with the Dagger next to it. Really nice work on them both

I really love that finish of ADC grey!

A very realistic weathered airframe too, just enough to notice but far from overdone. Superb all around!

Looks like a Cadillac with wings on it. Beautiful and really really good work.

Funny you should say that, Jay, as I have read that is exactly how the '106 was described by its pilots; the Mustang wasn't the only Cadillac of the Skies!

BTW Joel- those are two of the best Deuce and Dart builds I have seen in a while- perfect panel line work, too- very subtle, especially as the Darts were kept in immaculate condition by their ground crews, many of whom worked on the same airframe for many years; IIRC one crew chief had the same Dart for 20 years and you could eat off of the airframe!

I forgot to post this link earlier- maybe too late for Joel, but thought  anybody else planning an F-106 model might find it a useful reference. What a beautiful jet that the USAF sure got their money's worth out of! Enjoy! (P.S. you have to read the section on the famous Cornfield Bomber!) This one's for you, @RidgeRunner!

Thank's for the link Mike.

 

I know this stunning site and i using it when i build my 106.

When i choose the marking i hesitate with the famous cornfield Bomber but the nose-art of the 87° win the goal.
