So, the plan is to finally finish my Minicraft/Hasagawa F-11F and turn it into this:

"Mind that bus." "What bus?" *SPLAT!*

Nice. Pity the F-110 designation has already been used by USAF

But they used pretty much all of the Century series numbers, so there's no room to fit in others.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards

The only thing I'm lacking is the Decals, as the later Decals that I have are too big for the tail, so I'm hoping someone has the ones for the F-102. I posted in the Swap Sub-Forum about the decal, no hits as of this morning.

And the Germans. There was even talk of an Avon-engined version for them.

Thanks Cap, but I know that kit, my adoptive father has several, and the 318th decals that are for them in 1970. I need the Double Delta Disk markings for the right era. There are only two makers, that I have found.

But, I will be sorely disappointed if the discs are waaaaaaay too large for the tail. :P

If someone has the diameter of either disk, It would help, that way I know if I have to "wing it". :P
