McDonnell F-88 Voodoo, Lindberg, 1/48, 1955
« on: December 04, 2018, 03:33:54 PM »
Hello mates :-salut

A Lindberg kit of a very few-known airplane, the McDonnell F-88 Voodoo.
Studied as as an escort-fighter, the F-88 was cancelled abandonned the USAF abandonned the escort-fighter... But the formula will be retained later for the second plane named Voodoo, the F-101.
This kit is already to be seen in the 1955 catalog of Lindberg. Its assembly is near perfect ans surface detail is excellent. Cockpit includes a beautiful pilot in anti-G and high altitude suit abd a beautiful ejection seat.
The kit was built almost oob with actual decals which are of high quality. I suppressed only the anemometric nose boom replaced by a more classic pitot tube under the nose :
The first box with artwork by Ray Gaedke representing the first prototype without post-combustion but with six 20 mm guns :


I represented the second prototype s/n 46-526 :
