1/72 F-101X
« on: June 04, 2018, 10:28:42 PM »
We are cleaning out my parents home.  My parents kept a few of my kits that I had built in the early 1980s. 

Here is the Matchbox CF-101B in my alma mater markings. There is no provision for the AIM-4Ds or AIR-2As which makes new armament easy to add. I am shocked the pitot tube is still intact.  :icon_surprised:

No firm ideas yet on what I will do but a few sleeps I think will help.

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

Concur with John.

If this was mine, I'd just dust it off and enjoy the plaudits!

You guys are killing me. I really want to refurbish this kit.

Here are the parts I intend to use.

Look, I promise to build another CF-101B or two or three but I'll use the much better Revell kit. With this kit I can show the AIM-4D and AIR-2A.
