The F-94C Starfire

While visiting Mom and Dad earlier this year Dad and I got to talking about his days as a Radar Tech in the U.S.A.F. during the Korean War.  Dad worked on the Radar Black Boxes responsible for locking onto enemy aircraft.  This F-94C was a pioneer in aviation history, being one of the first aircraft to have radar assisted missle launching capabilities.  Dad and I scoured the internet and found a guy that sold original model kits of the F-94C.  So we ordered a couple.  I put one together and so did dad.  Here are some research pictures I used when working on mine.  I forgot to take a picture of my final product. Dad will have to send me a snapshot since I gave it to him. ;-)
