Thanks, guys!

Kerick:  I plan on an F-15-like scheme (2 grays) with low-viz markings.  I love the original 106's colorful markings, but I don't relish the idea of trying to replicate that high gloss gray, PLUS, I want to emphasize the differentiation between the original 106 and this new version.

Well, I tried to be good about taking photos along the way, but I just lost it.  Nevertheless, the project is complete, with a bit of a surprise ending.  I had intended on a two-tone grey USAF camouflage ala F-15, with low-viz markings.  Due to my lack of airbrushing experience and a series of unfortunate incidents (after each of which I decided the project was ruined!), I changed my plan to an overall dark grey scheme with Japanese markings.  Though in no way historically sound, I like the result.  So, herewith are the photos (four at a time in a series of posts.  Enjoy, and let me know what you think!

Very nice! I think the most view of your changes is in the nose-on shot (F-106-17.jpg). Just shown that image, I doubt that many would guess that this whif started as a Delta Dart   :)

Came out great! The dark blue with the red roundels works really well. :)

Struck me same way.  Went looking for F-106 recognizable features.  Good build, a lot went into it :)

Thanks, guys, for all the comments!  I was quite pleased with the eventual result, even if I almost quit a few times!  And, yes, FAAMAN, the Japanese version depicted would certainly be F-106GJ!

Couldn't agree more, it looks like the logical next stage from the 106, but a new aircraft altogether. First class.
If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.
