Thank you for the kind words, my friends!

I'm thinking of a backstory either where the F-4 Phantom is a total flop and economic problems force the US military to prolong the life of every available piece of equipment or something like the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 limits the production of all kinds of military hardware, not just battleships. Either way the entire Century Series has to soldier on with modifications and improvements far beyond their projected lifespan. This would allow for the old airframes sporting AIM 120s and LGBs while blasting off with newer engines and such.

F-101E Voodoo II is finally finished!













Touch up and detail painting and gluing on the fiddly bits didn't take as long as I thought. All in all I think it turned out very well. A few spots could have been done better but then I could also be working on this until the cows come home. Anyway, I hope you like it.

Here's a link to the entire album if you are so inclined, https://www.flickr.com/gp/128586659@N07/V442j6

This is the most viable, vivacious, voracious, vibrant, vitalizing, vengeful, venomous and venerable Voodoo I have ever viewed.

I am in now in a vacuum of verbal vernacular.  I must now vamoose. Au revoir.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
