1/72 scale conversion kit for a TF-102 Delta Dagger
review / modelling report
... continued from page 1....
The plastic model was given a coat of gloss with Johnson Future / Pledge. This to have a good surface to add the decals later on.
canopy for the two seater was cut with the windscreen set on the model.
- on the 32
FIS TF-102 Deuce the IR seeker in front of the windshield was only fitted
on USAF TF-102's later on. On the model it was not fitted as it was TF-102
with serial 41370 of the USAF 32 FIS flying from Soesterberg.
- next the model got the gears, wheels and doors. On the gear legs some brake wires were set made from thin metal wire.
- the model
is bare with closed weapon bay. I only added the fueltanks.
- a large nose pitot was added using a metal needle.
- I was not sure if the TF-102 had an arrestor hook, but it was added just as for the single seater F-102
- the whole model got a sealing matt varnish coat using Johnson Future / Clear / Pledge with 15% Tamiya Flat Base X-21 acrylic mixed in to get a semi-matt result.
is a nice companion of the same 32 FIS squadron's F-102A
