1/48th Monogram F-106A Delta Dart Michigan ANG

Long time no entry into this group build, so here is one I have just completed.

For a 25 year or so old kit it really stands up well in a number of areas whilst also showing it's age in others. The detail in the cockpit, weapons bay and wheel bays is as good as any new release that has come out in the past year or so; however the fit of the parts is very 1970's and the panel lines are raised.

Rather than rescribe the kit I built this old gal in the manner of the day when she was released and built up any panel lines that had been lost during the sanding of the not to well fitting parts.

Construction was completely out of the box, which just showed hoe well detailed this kit is.

The main colour was finished in Lifecolor UA041 FS16473 ADC Grey and I am very happy with their rendition of this somewhat elusive colour. The Eaqle Strike decals performed flawlessly with Microset and just a little Microsol being needed over some of the more prominent raised panel lines.

Weathering was kept to an absolute minimum with just a light highlighting of some of the panel lines and minor fading to some of the panels as the F-106's were quite possibly THE best maintained planes ever to have served in the US Air Force.

So here we are, hope you enjoy the pictures...

Lovely model of a very impressive machine. The nuke in the weapons bay is cool.....nothing like a 106 belly full of instant sunshine to make a flock of TU-95s a little nervous. Nice job...well done!!
