  1. 2019, 2020… what's in a number?
  2. I learned something new today. Thank you Bill for the clarification. Quang
  3. Aha! The plot thickens. How about the brown on this one? Another thing to take in consideration is the discoloration of the period Kodachrome.
  4. The horror! On this sad day, my thoughts go to our NZ friends.
  5. Just superb, Chek. And very helpful as well. Of interest is the dark brown colour, not noticeable on b&w prints. The general black-green pattern is rather consistent. Here's a pic of 41512 in Vietnam. The brown appears to be added as an afterthought Cheers, Quang
  6. Reedoak has a superb WWII USN standing pilot who looks uncannily like Sam Shepard.
  7. Will do, Chek. I will create a new thread devoted to the KH RF-101C build. Quang
  8. Thanks Tony. While the KH Voodoo can present a number of challenges, none of them is insurmountable. The trick is to deal with them one by one. I'm currently replacing the round bleed air vent on the right side of the fuselage with a rectangular one. Should to be an interesting experience Cheers, Quang
  9. @Chek Great profile view of 228. Pity it's only black and white. Thanks Chek!
  10. Moulding limitations. To achieve a nice bubble canopy, you need a three-part mould ( resulting in a nice seam on the bubble top). Think Tamiya 1/32 Mustang. With two-part moulds, the canopy sides need to be somewhat vertical so that they can remove the mould after injection, resulting in a squashed effect. Having said that, the squashed effect is not too apparent on the KH Voodoo. One can always add a scratchbuilt boarding ladder to divert the viewer’s attention.
  11. @LSP_K2 Ron Easly is an authority on the F-101. His book should be very interesting. Thanks for your input. @Tony T I don’t know about D-Mold but the Kitty Hawk nose looks very usable to me with an accurate shape and an excellent fit. Here I opened the side apertures and put in the cameras stolen from the KH Cougar .I also added the RHAWS bumps on the nose and tail. The Eduard consoles and instrument panel are not bad but I prefer an old-style cockpit à la Monogram, more realistic IMO. Cheers, Quang
  12. I also found that Monogram F-84F tanks -with the fins removed- fit the photos of the slim variant to a tee. Here are the KH RF-101 tank and the Monogram F-84 tank compared. Above KH, below Monogram Thanks Chek for your input. Cheers, Quang
  13. Hi guys, I’m currently building the Kitty Hawk 1/48 RF-101C Voodoo (a smooth and pleasant ride despite what’s being said In some circles). My intention is to do an Vietnam-era replica in one of the early test camouflage. During my research, I noticed that Voodoo of that theater often carry a different kind of auxiliary tanks, slimmer and longer than their European counterparts.   I curious to know where those peculiar tanks come from. Since the RF-101s used in Vietnam were originally based in Japan, were these long tanks associated with their base in Japan ( just like the Misawa tanks on the F-86 during the Korean War?) What do you Voodoo fans, think?  Thank you for your input. Cheers, Quang 
  14. Nice and neat. An excellent tribute to this exceptional kit. Bravo Bob! Quang
  15. Those resin kits of the Jungmeister look good but they’re short of being unbuildable. The provided LG and wing struts would simply collapse under the weight of the resin fuselage and wings.
