    F-101b Vodoo Revell 1/72

    Loving the way the progress keeps chugging along. The results are inspirational. Yes that bird got dirty in the back end, those older engine left half their fuel as soot out back. Keep it up Giovanni.

    Yes it is Revell but they carried over the errors from the Monogram kit. Although Giovanni has corrected them nicely.

    Sometimes big projects need that extra push to complete. Your work is outstanding. The small round windows on the side panels are for checking the hydraulics systems, the lifeblood of any aircraft. The Revell/Monogram kits again for their age still show superiority, as the outlines of the canopy and windscreens are excellent when compared to the upscaled Kitty Hawk release.

    Nice to see the corrected panel as well. This beauty continues. Went into my collection and posting this taken by a friend Capt D Foulds spring 1984.

    I see this bird moving closer and closer to the paint hangar. What I like about the Revell 101 is the shape is very good, just some TLC on the modelers part.

    This airframe is getting a complete overhaul, great to see. The underside of wings from many kit manufacturers seem to get overlooked but you are doing a great rescue job. The wing fences were quite thin so good idea to remove them and add thinner ones.

    F-101B soon from Kitty Hawk

    The F/CF-101's used two different styles of external tanks Streamlines and Stubby as we called them. Those of course pictured are the Streamline while Monogram and KH provide the Stubbies. As maintenance we hated the Streamlines, awkward to install and work around.

    Nice efforts Giovanni. I had PM'd you about this because since the detail was as you said almost invisible when looking down the intake even on the real thing. It was referred to the "Dog Cock" and behind it a one time use high pressure accumulator that store enough high pressure are for a single start in the air if needed. I can picture the parts in my mind still but have no pictures of it.

    That's excellent work. The splitter plates were occasionally removed to allow access to an access panel for a cooling radiator mounted inboard (can't remember which system it was for). The radiators took air from a small opening between the engine intake and fuselage. 👍

    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.
