A bit of background for all my non-Canadian friends. The Arrow, CF-105 interceptor jet was built in the late 50s. It was the most advanced aircraft of it’s time. Due to some f’d up politics the program was cancelled and the 6 prototypes were all scrapped. Very sad. If anyone is interested in this awesome jet here’s a link to the whole story.

Here is a couple of pics from the manufacturing floor. The guy circled is the Admiral’s Dad working on RL-206, or at least she thinks that’s him.

I’m going to do a tiny bash by adding cockpit gauges and a flight stick. Here’s the gauge template I’m using.

I will be painting the model like these images, not with the orange which was used for visibility during testing flights.
