When I was a young child growing up in the late '60s, my father was very
much into scale modelling. At one point, he had both a F-100 and F-104. I
know my dad built alot of Lindbergh and Hawk models, and I can vaguely
remember a drawing of the model in sideview on the box tops or side panels.
I used to cut them out and put them on posterboard.
The F-104 I know was an old Lindbergh kit, complete with jet noise and the
downward ejection seat. The ejection seat and pilot could be removed from
the model, if I remember right.
It is the F-100 I am curious about. It was bigger than 1/48 scale, but
smaller than 1/32, molded in silver, with moveable stabilators and 5 in
rockets on the wings. Does anyone have an idea who the manufacturer was
and what scale this beastie might have been?
Thanks in advance for any hints to this model's origins you might be able
to provide. Maybe someday I'll find one and relive some old memories.
