McDonnell F-101B c/n 631 serial 58-0259 was built in 1958 at their St. Louis Missouri facility. 58-0259 was one of 401 F-101Bs produced between 1957 and 1961. The base was used to train interceptor pilots for the Air Defense Command duties. Since the base was so close to Cuba that during and after the Cuban Missile Crisis F-101s and F-102s were on constant alert ready to intercept any unknown aircraft. The last F-101 Voodoo in U.S. service was retired on September 21, 1982.

McDonnell F-101B Voodoo

Designed to meed a USAAF requirement for a long-range turbojet powered fighter, the F-101 was first flown (as the XF-88 prototype) on October 20th, 1948. Its initial mission as bomber escort was modified during development to include that of all-weather interceptor, nuclear fighter-bomber and photo reconnaissance aircraft. Reconnaissance variants saw extensive use during the Vietnam war while interceptors remained in service with several Air National Guard units until 1982. Ultimately, the Voodoo's carreer was rather short-lived although it did help pave the way towards the highly successful F-4 Phantom II that replaced it.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-101 Voodoo is a large model in this scale and is constructed from diecast metal with plastic components used for replication of fine scale details such as the model's nose and engine exhausts. The short stubby solid metal wings are cleverly fitted to the fuselage with almost no visible seams and feature razor thin aerodynamic wing fences and crisp panel lines. The hinged canopy opens near vertical for easy placement of crew figures and viewing the highly detailed pad-printed front and rear instrument panels. The series covers fighter variants with a rotating weapons pallete under the forward fuselage and reconnaissance variants with transparent camera windows in the nose.
