This is some beautifully cast resin. No imperfections at all. Based on my research, I'd recommend using 0747 rather than what the decals provide. 745 was also at NOTS China Lake during that time period and was involved in the Project Pilot, but it looks like 745 was repainted in the gull gray over white by that time. 747 was definitely still in the blue and was definitely involved in launching live Pilot rockets. My kit came from New Ware with two decal sheets so the change is easy, but I don't know if all the kits come that way or if I just got lucky.

When I get to the decaling phase, I will post an update on how they are to work with, but they look very sharp and fairly thin.

Christopher Dworjan It was an early effort ( 1958 ) by the Navy at NOTS China Lake to get a satellite into space. Unlike the Army and Air Force efforts that used modified ballistic missiles, or the NRL with Vanguard, Project Pilot used all off the shelf rockets. The first stage was just the small HOTROC rockets used on the SUBROC rocket-boosted torpedo. To get the package off the ground, they used the F4D in a zoom climb. Six attempts were made to put a two pound satellite in orbit, and though weak signals were detected by a tracking station in New Zealand, none of the launches were considered successful and the entire project remained classified until 1994.

Peter Tong Hi David
I just buy this kit today
May be i should find this Photo etched.
Follow up.

David Lengyel Hello Peter, I got these PE parts from LSA Models, UK. According to the shop assistant and probably an owner, Jason, they should have 2 more pieces in stock. Shop here lsamodels.co.uk/stockitems/E..c-model-kit-F4D-1-SKYRAY.htm Or try this shop, they also had this item in stock a couple of days ago modellbau-universe.de/produk..uard;edu~72294;179;1;1;1.htm ;)
8. July 2014 at 18:35:25
Soeren . Like i already wrote at the modellboard! I love your work so far at this modell and also the preshading looks really good :) I will definitely take front row seat for this model project ;)
29. August 2014 at 08:34:32
David Lengyel Thank you Sören :) I hope I won't mess it up.
29. August 2014 at 08:41:27
Soeren . And if so you will learn something for the next model! I'm even more a beginner at this than you and I know that I will make some terrible mistakes at my first models :P but isn't also the reason why we doing this? Ok also of course the fun and that we are model-fans or in my case aircraft fans :P
29. August 2014 at 08:48:45
David Lengyel I'm done! Pictures soon ;)
7. October 2014 at 23:05:35

3. July 2014 at 04:42:48
Urban Gardini Watching with interest here mate! It's a nice bird n' someday I'll build mine as well. Too bad that there isn't much out there in decals for it.
4. July 2014 at 07:29:05
David Lengyel @Urban How about a group build? Jump on the bandwagon ;)
4. July 2014 at 07:56:47
Urban Gardini Sorry but I've got too many projects ongoin' to be able to actually finish yet another groupbuild. I even got an idea late last night that might lead to me starting yet another kit this weekend instead of keep goin' on the ones allready started. Crazy n' stupid I know but hey, we're modellers after all so that comes with the package...

22. February 2013 at 23:03:35
Pascal GARAT I love the "Ford" too and already built...7.
I have another one started and the 1/32 awesome Fisher kit is waiting in the stash.
Few pics of a finished Skyray can be seen in my album.

Have fun building this great plane!!

5. March 2012 at 18:54:06
Urban Gardini Thanks mate! It's a bird that manage to be ugly n' beautiful at the same time. I like it but I must admit that I don't know anything about the Skyray at all, I just wan't to build it.
5. March 2012 at 19:09:32
Bill Gilman This is a great little kit - I built it last year. I had a tough time with the decals, but that always happens with me and Tamiya kits. I don't know why. The big blue decals for the tail and spine were particularly tricky - they wanted to stick immediately wherever they landed. But it came out OK.
5. March 2012 at 20:23:02
Urban Gardini Well, Tamiya's decals isn't the nicest out there to work with. Plus the fact that I don't like decals... Check out the build that I added earlier tonight in the project updates...
5. March 2012 at 20:35:30
Bill Gilman Which one, Urban?
6. March 2012 at 04:08:42
Lionel Marco I made this kit too, and have real fun qith it!
6. March 2012 at 09:27:26
Urban Gardini It's not my build! It's just a great build that I did find on the net but it's the build that made me wanna build one of my own.
6. March 2012 at 09:31:08
Dave Flitton You are right, this is an inspirational build!!!!
6. March 2012 at 14:22:20
Bill Gilman Thanks, Urban, the gentleman did a nice job on the build of the little batplane.
It amazes me how back in the 1950s, the major aerospace companies could design a new plane, test it, build the production units, put them in service, and have them go out of service due to being made obsolete by newer designs in the same length of time (a few years) that it takes the modern companies to produce an artist's impression of what the design will look like. I guess that's progress. Of course, a lot of test pilots paid with their lives as nobody knew how these things would fly until they rolled down the runway. Today's computer simulations have certainly helped in that regard, and in fairness the complexity of the modern designs is far beyond those of the 1950s. But it is a staggering difference.

By the way, for those who don't understand why the linked article was called "ford at sea" it's because the Skyray's designation was F4D, or Ford.
6. March 2012 at 20:50:03
Wilfried Bogaerts aaaah I knew the F4D's nick was Ford, but now I understand why! Thx Bill!
