    1/48 F-94B Starfire – Your Favorite Aircraft of All Time GB

    User Name: T Bolt
    Name: Glenn
    Category: 1, Advanced
    Model: F-94B 51-15480 Starfire “Hells Angel”
    Kit: Hobbycraft F-94A
    Scale: 1/48th.
    Accessories:
    Reheat PE Detail Set
    True Details Wheel Set
    Experts Choice/Bare Metal Foil Decals

    My second entry for the Favorite Aircraft of All Time Group Build is a F-94B Starfire “Hells Angel”

    The P/F-80 T-33 F-94 family jets have always been some of my favorite early jets. Seeing the F-94 at the Air Force Museum on my recent trip there made me decide to do this one. I have never used a large PE set like this before. So it should be interesting. The set includes PE seats which I will use keeping the resin seats in reserve if the PE doesn’t work out.

    The aircraft I will model is F-94B 51-15480 “Hells Angel” Assigned to the 68th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, K-13 Air Base Suwon Korea and Itazuke Air Base Japan during late 1951 and early 1952. I could not find any pictures of the actual aircraft, but here are some cplor pics of other F-94s from the 68th FIS, but the first is a picture of the F-94A I took at the Air Force Museum last weekend.

    Interesting choice Glenn, I like the add-ons particularly the PE, it looks like you will have your hands full with these.

    Nice choice Glenn. I have always thought about picking one of these up but never got around to doing it. Should be instructive to watch this unfold.

    I started with the cockpit PE. It was the first time I had done anything this extensive with PE, and it wasn't as bad as I had feared. I only got my fingers stuck together once :lol:. There's still quite a bit of PE to go including the control panels and parts on the canopy, but I'll get this painted first.

    Great job on the P.E. Glenn. Do you have a folding tool or like me, razor and metal ruler.

    Razor and an xacto knife. Worked pretty good.
