Historical Note:


Preorder Expected Arrival - SEP 2023

Designed to meet a USAAF requirement for a long-range turbojet powered fighter, the F-101 was first flown (as the XF-88 prototype) on October 20th, 1948. Its initial mission as bomber escort was modified during development to include that of all-weather interceptor, nuclear fighter-bomber and photo reconnaissance aircraft. Reconnaissance variants saw extensive use during the Vietnam war while interceptors remained in service with several Air National Guard units until 1982. Ultimately, the Voodoo's career was rather short-lived although it did help pave the way towards the highly successful F-4 Phantom II that replaced it.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-100 Super Sabre is constructed almost entirely from diecast metal, with only the smallest amount of plastic used. The fuselage is almost seamless, with a hinged articulating canopy that opens for viewing of the cockpit interior. The engine intake has near-razor sharp edges with an unusually long pitot tube, and the surface surrounding the engine is correctly unpainted. The wing has crisp panel lines, hand-painted navigation lights and a complete set of ordnance including rocket, bombs and fuel tanks. Variants include the A, C and D; the D features a larger wing, aerodynamic fences on the wings and two types of refueling probes.
