    F-101b Vodoo Revell 1/72

    Your work continues to impress so many of us. Glad to see this build continuing.

    We are all here happily waiting. Those numbers on the flaps look very familiar. Flaps were either up or down and made airframe spotting in the lineup a little easier.

    Great post Darren, so many people never realize that everyone else has costs as well they have to recup. Remember for larger manufacturers, your not paying for the cost of the kit, but for the cost of their next release.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Once the kit hits the shelves, so to speak, the boxart debate will be forgotten.

    His words were "It is essentially AMK-Tomcat fanart" not boxart.

    1/48 Airfix Sea Fury has hit Canada $34.99 Cdn in Edmonton

    Finally, finally received my Sea Fury from my local hobby shop. $39 cdn. There was a spare fuselage sprue included to make up for the small molding error on the vertical tail.

    The rotary door looks really good and those small "fences" look just right. They were to deflect the hot coming out of the airconditioning exhaust outlet that would affect the AIM. Looking forward to more updates. Still a solid base kit for modelling the 101 by Revell.

    I like your side console knob and switch highlights. Sometimes they can be over done as people will use pure white for the highlight, while many were actually a light grey. Yours look really good and not too stark.

    The attention to detail is admirable. The great workmanship continues. Glad to see the progression.

    Your reworked headrests look much better, keep up the detailing, this will be a beautiful result.

    The great SWS Phantom fuselage debate goes on, considering how many quarter scale F-4 have been released in my 40 years of serious modelling, I doubt there will be many more, so I will just build what I have.

    I don't think they ever denied it, they just never talked about it. Or did they?

    More great details your adding, loving the results.

    An impressive indepth work you are doing and keeping us entertained with the updates. The left and right angled parts are actually vents which helped keep a slight positive air pressure on the fuel system to prevented fuel starvation. I forget which, but one was ever so slightly angled differently than the opposite than the other to maintain a consistent pressure, common in many aviation fuel systems. The F-101 could not normally dump fuel. I've added a couple more images from my collection, I hope you don't mind. Just an idea when I built my 1/48 CF-101. The intake is a real pain to assemble and fill with that splitter plate making the filling difficult to say the least. On my kit, I cut out the plate, assembled the intakes, then filled, painted the insides and added a scratched plate from card stock after. The black cone further down the intake in the second image was referred to as the "dog cock" and housed a high pressure round cylinder that held high pressure air to help restart a stalled engine, but rarely used. Happy to see the updates. Craig

    Happy to answer whatever I can. What you are looking at is the Rotary Armament Door in the reversed position that it would be in flight. That is the side the rocket Genie's would sit. So for cross-country trips the luggage carrier is used and since the door is only hydraulically actuated it would be rotated to the normal missile position down after one of the engines are started. Hydraulics are only available from engine driven pumps or from an external cart for maintenance. In front of the travel pod is a spare engine pneumatic starter to be used if one of the aircraft starters failed away from a home base. Of course they would require maintenance to change it first. The engine starters had a notoriously high failure rate. For engine starts on the ground two things are required, AC electrical power and high pressure air.
