F-106A Delta Dart

After the enthusiastic reactions when I completed my F-105 Thunderchief, I started on another so-called Century Fighter: the classic F-106A Delta Dart.

 

The jet carries the markings of a particular Delta Dart, called 'Thunder Chicken' whilst serving with the 48th Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Langley AFB in Virginia in 1978.

 

Like with my F-105, for the time being I'm only posting a single photograph. More details will have to wait until it has been published in a future issue of Brickjournal.

    The SNOT work is excellent and the smooth fuselage really tops it off.Stupendous work as usual!
  • Kate Vinnedge 3y

    Amazing work as usual, Ralph.
  • Cole Edmonson 3y

    Incredible! The smooth shaping of the fuselage, the well-executed wings...Every detail has been brilliantly captured here, as in all of your aircraft models!
  • TCHe 3y

    Everything has been said already, but not by everyone ;)
    So, another Well done from this fan of your work. What will be the next project?
  • magnus_lauglo 3y

    Very cool to see you go back to the Cold War era. I don't think I've seen anyone have a go at most of these planes. Brilliant work as always!

    The old school Mach 2 + delta jets were never among my personal favorites, but they do pose interesting building challenges that you've solved quite nicely - that almost trianular fuselage just after of the cockpit.

    This a very beautiful recreation of a famous plane into lego form.

    Can you also please show me how you built the rotors and landing gears of your apache heli
  • Mike 3y

    Very nice work, I meant to comment a while ago but I got lazy...

    It's great work all around but the nose section (tip through the cockpit) is just incredible. In my opinion it's the best work you've ever done (for aircraft noses, that is)

    My complaint is that I wish the wing was smoother. That raised section, which I assume is for the landing gear, really detracts from the overall shape. Was it not possible to make the wing 1 plate thicker to avoid that extra step?
  • Chris 1971 3y

    That snotty tail really works on this model!
  • Ryan Harris 3y

    Very nice build, makes me want to see what you could do for a starfighter. Have you ever built one?
