Another total re-scribe. This is a very nice older kit.

Nice work on the re-scribing.
Will be interesting to see it compared to the Kittyhawk kit.

Thank you Nathan and James. Welcome Maciej. @ James, it sure goes together easier than the Kitty Hawk, and the cockpit is much more detailed. But I would say on surface details the KH wins.
4. September at 23:02:54
Finally got all of the re-scribing done, had to wait on a new Tamiya scribing tool, as I wore the other one out. Now I can get on with building this beast. Have to be ready for the GB. LOL.

Thank you much Michael. Welcome Donald and Bryn. I got the intakes and wheel wells painted today and cockpit installed. I will get some pictures up tomorrow,
12. September at 00:00:43
Watching! You are a braver man than me... Rescribing full models is just not for me. Much props to you Clifford!

I do like the Monogram cockpits. So much more busy than most kits.
12. September at 23:31:46
Love it so far.. will be superb, better than my desert one.
12. September at 23:33:45
Looking good Clifford. You're pretty good at scribing now! I got to see a real Voodoo at the Canadian Airforce Museum this year, they are quite an impressive beast.
13. September at 03:25:09
@ Nathan, yes Monogram kits usually have very good detail. Thank you very much Augie and Gareth. @ Gareth, my re-scribing skills are coming along slowly. LOL. My dad worked on F-101's at Tyndall AFB FLA. so I got to see them quite often, they were very impressive. I hit one with an Estes model rocket once, We used to fly our Model rockets from the ball field at the elementary school just up the street from my house, of course this was on the approach path to Tyndall's runway. I was flying a 2 stage Nike Hercules rocket and just happened to launch it as a flight of 2 101's flew over. It bounced off of the belly. I was afraid I might of "shot it down" LOL. but it flew on no damage done.

So you mastered basic anti aircraft skills at a very young age!!! LOL
13. September at 19:02:19
Now that story could make an interesting diorama Clifford lol. Where does one find a 1:48 child with a look of "OH SHIT" on his face?

16. September at 00:43:22
Looks like more progress Clifford. This is making me want to crack open one of my Voodoo kits.
17. September at 02:28:17
Rescribing this beast could be an act of lunacy. Although we will all do it sometimne in our modeling careers.

Bryn, nope! I will only rescribe to the extent I absolutely have to. I am perfectly fine with raised lines.
17. September at 23:45:35
Thank you very much Nathan, Bryn, Jos and Donald. @Bryn, yea I guess I am a lunatic. LOL. Hope to start painting it tomorrow, have been down with the ole "stomach flu" the last couple of days. Yuk. Feeling better now.
20. September at 00:07:45
Well done with all that scribing Cliffy, looking forward to see some colour on her, and don't let that stomach bug knock you about to much.
20. September at 02:53:20
Thank you Michael. Feeling much better today. I got the marble coat on today, and some work done on the second "Dark Vark".

Nice preshade Clifford. That should make the camo very convincing.
21. September at 15:50:40
*grabs seat* - Great progress so far
Clifford, please record different stages of camo, due to my eternal doubt whether to go light-towards-dark or no overlapping - matching the borders...
21. September at 17:32:08
Thank you Sergej I, I will do that. Hope to get the belly done today.
22. September at 16:05:15
I got the belly painted, but found a couple of places where the putty had shrunk, so had to apply more putty. Will sand it and re-spray those areas tomorrow hopefully.

Great work there mate. Respect for your scribing work!

Paint work is coming along nicely. The rescribing really does make a difference.
25. September at 14:55:59
Can't wait to see the finished paintwork. The underside looks great already.
25. September at 19:14:55
Thank you very much Bernd,Erik, Nikolaos, Stephan, Bryn and James. I am flattered by your kind words. I am going to start the topside this evening.

Thank you very much Jos, Konrad, Stephan, Augie, Nathan, Donald and Maciej. You all flatter me with your kind words. I am glad you like. I got the exhausht shielding painted yesterday. Trying to get it finished so I can start on the Group Build. It starts tomorrow does it not?.
29. September at 23:15:14
I believe its Tuesday, but I don't know if I can stare at those boxes all day tomorrow.
Are you using the kit decals on this one?
30. September at 01:21:07
Yes, I am going to use the kit decals. There is not a lot of options for the RF-101B, it was only operated by one unit. The 192 TRS.
1. October at 02:11:35
Great job Clifford - while I go full Primadonna for the new & refined, you have no issues tackling those more vintage & difficult of kits...
Looking good with colors up, I´m happy I made it to the thread for the final treatment steps!
1. October at 11:15:00
Thank you Donald and Slavo. Your kind words mean a lot. Hopefully I will get it finished soon. The Group build is on and I have F-5's and F-18's stacked up in the corner of the work room, as well as a Viper and an A-4.

I have too much I want to wrap up to get involved in that group build. Plus the aggressor stuff just doesnt pique my interest a lot.
Regardless, I am definitely anticipating the finish on this one.
1. October at 23:59:31
All of the decals are on, they snugged down nicely with micro-sol. I will apply the next gloss coat tomorrow, and then it is on to weathering. Finished up the small bits also.
3. October at 01:45:28
damn thats looking good!
3. October at 23:08:38
Thank you Augie, Nathan, Tim and Stephan. I am glad you all like it. I got the wash on and off today and the Matt coat applied.
4. October at 21:49:07
Thank you very much Nathan. I need to do some minor touch up painting on the fwd. windscreen frame. Other than that I am happy with the way it is looking. My next 101 will be the KH RF-101C. Then I will have to try the "B" also. It never stops does it.
4. October at 23:42:39
I'm going to have to buy another of those kits because I want to do a NMF C-model and a camo G-model.
4. October at 23:45:15
Top job on the surface and panel lining Clifford! The details & colors below are also pretty cool - It's great to follow your takes on the less common types & eras of aviation
5. October at 09:11:29
Thank you very much Nathan and Slavo. @ Slavo, I guess I'm a sucker for 50 and 60's era jets. I grew up around them, with my father being career Air Force. I got up close and personal with quite a few of them. LOL.
6. October at 00:45:09
Awesome, great camo and very realistic weathering of the bottom side!
8. October at 19:48:40
I like it a lot, maybe it is the camo and the diffused edges on the camo.
I also vaguely remember building this kit as a kid.

Thank you very much Stephan, Sergej, Slavo and Treehugger. I am flattered by your kind words.@ Treehugger, I have built quite a few Monogram F-101B's but this is my first RF-101B. It has been fun building it.
