Skyray coming soon!

Recommended Posts

 

 

I have always loved the delta config, wanting a Javalin in 32nd for ever, but knowing for the US, this is one of the few, and to me is a really purty looking air frame.

YES Brain, again we have something in common. I love deltas too and that is why I REALLY want the Skyray even though it did not play some sort of significant role in the history (or I am just not aware of it and in such case I apologise). I still remember the picture in the only air magazine we had in the seventies showing Skyray from USS Boxer during the Cuban crisis. I fell in love with her ever since.

 

Paul, take your time, I am saving pennies and already took the mortgage in order to be ready for the beauty girl when she comes.

 

Best to all

P.S. : If only someone releases Delta Dagger (or at least Dart) in our scale.

Most definitely my friend!

 

Im not sure on the historical role (if any) either but I do know it was quite a successful airframe. Im not one of those, "got to build an Aces plane or one with a huge historical role or lots of kills" kind of builders.

I just usually build what I like.

Sorry...I am a digital dinosaur, forgot how to do it!

Anyway, the USMC ships will be next, hopefully the Navy birds are colorful enough to keep everyone busy for a little while.The kit comes with drop tanks, rocket pods, 2 Sidewinders and the Navpac.

 

Best,

Paul

Paul,

 

September? I'm sure it will be WELL WORTH the wait!

Will the USMC decals be available separately?

parts shots are amazing, Paul. Good choices on markings. How much does the Skyray cost?

Hi folks..just a quick visit to post a link to new pics of the kit in my photobucket account.She's done but for the decals and photo-etch to arrive and we will start shipping. I will post some (hopefully) better pictures soon, but for now you can get a pretty good idea of all the goodies in the kit, and we just got the masks for the canopy from Ad Astra today, what a great addition...makes it easy!

 

Thanks to all, partsoverview.jpg

 

Paul
