In 1966 the Minnesota ANG 179th FIS "Bulldogs" / 148th FG re-equipped with the F-102 Delta Dagger. In 1970 the unit won the "William Tell" weaponry competition earning them the nickname "The Aces of Deuces". F-102A 56-1488 was first delivered to the 438th FIS and spent time with the 59th FIS and in 1970 moved to the Minnesota ANG 179th FIS. In April 1971 the aircraft was put in storage at AMARC and in 1980 was converted to PQM-102B as "802".

Convair F-102A Delta Dagger

The F-102 was first flown on October 24, 1953. This aircraft was the USAF's first delta-wing fighter, and was also the USAF's first operational supersonic interceptor. Its primary mission was to intercept Soviet bombers, though it was also used as a bomber escort and ground attack aircraft during the Vietnam War. F-102s served with the USAF until the mid to late 1960s, when many of them were transferred to the US Air National Guard. By 1973, many F-102s were being used as target drones for testing the Patriot missile system, and the type was officially retired from service in 1976.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-102 Delta Dagger is a quality model with many fine features, skillfully designed and manufactured with modern techniques. The hinged canopy opens to reveal a pad-printed instrument panel and radar screen. The speed brake can be configured in the deployed position, and the landing gear and gear doors are constructed as subassemblies for quick and easy ground configuration. The solid metal wing is masterfully recreated with downturned leading edges, raised wingtips, razor thin wing fences and removable fuel tanks. The three segmented weapons bays are constructed as a one-piece subassembly, and the six Falcon missiles feature finely detailed trapeze mounts.
