CD48147 - 1/48 RF-101C Voodoo Pt.2

Recommended Posts

 

This one will have more Vietnam options with nose art ("Gerry's Clown", "Luv Bug" and "The Iron Eyeball") , two very colorful silver jets as well as an overall ADC gray example.

 

There is another (not shown) with the large US national insignia and USAF markings needed for the natural metal options - it is the same sheet included with my earlier F-101A/C set (CD48052).

Super! Getting this one as well. The 66th TRW option is great - thanks Kursada for the extra coverage!

Kursad, Excited to see The Iron Eyeball, always liked that marking.  I know it's late, but Pg. 238  of Doug Gordon's "Tactical Reconnaissance in the Cold War", Pen & Sword 2006, is a photo of the right side of the nose, with 

THE EYEBALL

  HAS COME

  HAS SEEN

       HAS

CONQUERED

in white block caps.

Maybe you already knew that, if so sorry, but I didn't see it on the photos of the sheets.

This is exactly why I have this forum 🙂 . It certainly is not too late, and I will add the missing marking. If someone has the book and can snap a quick photo, please send me a PM. If not, I am sure the vast Univ of Texas library system has the book. And you, sir, get a free decal sheet when it is available. Thanks!

Hey Don thanks for helping Kursad make the decal more accurate. That little tidbit should look cool on the model.

The book is a goldmine of information and photos on USAF recce aircraft - in addition to a accurate "The Iron Eyeball", I can see adding many interesting RB-66, RB-57 and perhaps even some RB-26 options to future sheets..

After buying an electronic (Kindle) version of the book, I updated the design and added the marking. Some of the details in the book allowed me to correct at least one marking. As I mentioned,  I will make good use of some of the other photos in the book in future sheets.

Available for preorder now - but please hold on if you are going to order other sheets so you can bundle orders. I should have all the other sheets in this batch available for preordering by this weekend.
