The Century Fighters GB - 27 so far


Recommended Posts

This could be a fun one to do, the century series aircraft.

 

The aircraft...

North American F-100 Super Sabre

McDonnell F-101 Voodoo

Convair F-102 Delta Dagger

Lockheed F-104 Starfighter

Republic F-105 Thunderchief

Convair F-106 Delta Dart

prototypes are all welcome for the sake of them being in the spirit of the GB and also to make it a more encompassing GB 👍

but no whatifs

 

so we can build:

F100, f101, f102, f104, f105, f106, (and their prototypes)

 

and also prototypes:

xf103, yf107, xf108

 

 

Any takers?

Prototypes qualify?  

 

Either way I’d be interested.  I’ve got an F-100 & F-107 in the stash.

Definitely! Century Series is something I enjoy building, was somewhat of a theme for me last year. At the moment I have 12 century fighters built (some multiples of course) and F-101, F-102, F-104 (couple of them) and F-106 waiting in the stash.

That looks rather a smart set, count me in on this - From memory I think I have an F-102 or 106 lurking in the loft somewhere that I could do with the impetus of a GB to get started on

Damn, how did the F-104 slip my mind.....got a pile of them on standby.  :blink2:

I'd still probably spring for the F-107...though a Starfighter would be a very close second choice.

Oh I'm sure it will be on the list of potentials...but I have this nasty habit of wanting to get involved in more GBs than I can possibly find the time for.  The problems of building at a snail's pace.




Although a snail probably moves faster.

Yes to this GB  bring back memories of  when F-104's were a staple of airshows. Indeed the first airshow photo I took  was of a Luftwaffe example at Wethersfield in the mi

Me please!

 

I'm a lifelong(ish) Starfighter enthusiast and since watching the Amazon Prime documentaries on the Thud and Hud, I would certainly be interested in making some of these.

 

Not got any on the shelves yet - got 4 of the Mark 1 (Revell re-issue) Starfighters in the stash.

Two will be hopefully getting built in the 'Nam GB, one for a Pakistani diorama and one for a RIAT 1991 diorama. So might not have any left when this GB comes around - I'm sure I'll find a solution to that though....

 

Platz have a nice Thud two-plane boxing available in Japan so hopefully it might see an Eduard repress some time, or I might need to figure out how HLJ works.
