PostSubject: REVIEW: Hobby Master HA3702 CAF CF-101B Voodoo 416 (Lynx) Squadron, CFB Chatam, New Brunswick   Thu Mar 16 2017, 16:57

Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series
HA3702
Canadian Armed Forces McDonnell CF-101B Voodoo
101045, No.416 (Lynx) Squadron
CFB Chatam, New Brunswick

Production Limited 1,500 Units

When the Canadian Government tragically cancelled the Avro CF-105 Arrow in 1959, the RCAF had to act quickly to find a suitable replacement for the Avro CF-100 Canuck and the F-86 Sabre.

For Canada's NATO contribution in Europe the CF-104 was selected to replace the Sabre. For the NORAD role the McDonnell F-101B Voodoo was chosen to replace the CF-100. In 1961 the RCAF began to receive 66 CF-101Bs from USAF stocks (They were from the last production batch of 1959). Eventually five RCAF Squadrons were equipped with the "One-Oh-Wonder". In 1971, the now renamed "Canadian Armed Forces", traded the 56 surviving CF-101Bs for 66 updated versions (identified by the infrared seeker above the nose) which served until replaced by the CF-18 Hornet in 1984.

The first Canadian CF-101 Voodoo release by Hobby Master.

A very good looking model and scheme. Highly Recommended
