Very nice! The 101 is a big beautiful aircraft!

This is great! I picked up this very kit a couple months ago - looking forward to the build.
Thanks,
John

Carlos and John thank you both!

This kit was a wonderful gift from Bruce and I hope to make it look good.

Should be a fun one! Our KY ANG flew RF-101s, then the RF-4, then was switched to ....... C-130s.

Yes, it was...a LOT of them moved on to other units. In the CAP, we had a number of them. I flew with several WSOs in our c-172 rockets.

John, Bruce, Lyle and Gary thank you all! One thing I had hoped for was the warp in the sprues wouldn't transfer over to the parts, but the body has some pretty bad warp in it. Hopefully it will be a easy fix using some heat
