Lockheed F-94B Starfire
« on: April 10, 2014, 05:27:55 PM »
Hello ! :-salut

Hera you are my latest build : an F-94B Starfire from Heller. The markings are of one of the Korean War, in December 1951.
This kit is pretty and is generally good and fit well enough. The markings are from, at the time, Microscale, now Scale Master (I think...). But it's not the best from them : US stars are to be replaced by bigger ones as the buzz-number and "USAF" markings on the wings... There is another mistake : the buzz-number was printed "FA-353" in place of FA-352, the s/n being 51-5352. I added too the seat belts.
I know no photographs of this planr names "Bull's Eye" flown by Captain William Turner. This a/c belonged to the 68th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, based Itazuke in Japan, then at Suwon in Korea.




The surfaces are hand-painted with Humbrol Metalcote "Polished Aluminium" then itself polished with aluminium powder and varnished with "Klir" to avoid a too high glossy rendering.
