I´ve been giving the the Tophatters alot of attention these past few weeks, so I thought it was only appropriate to show the USAF a bit of TLC too. With that I decided to build my Interceptor section, with four all new Deadly Deltas. Two Deuces (32nd FIS, 326th FIS) and two Sixs (5th FIS and 48th FIS). I sure hope you enjoy this batch of colorful sleek cold war Interceptors. As always, these can become available as a print ready to hang on your wall...just drop me a line, if you are interested Click the image below to be taken to the Interceptor section.
In order to proceed with the celebration of the Tophatters 100th anniversary, this aircraft had to be modeled from scratch. The F3D-2 Skyknight has a very sort career with the US navy frontline fighter squadrons, and managed only to serve with two squadrons (the other being VF-11 "Red Rippers"). However, the aircraft became one of only a handful to serve both in Korea and in Vietnam. In Korea as an accomplished night fighter, flying escort for B-29 bombing missions, and in Vietnam as a Electronic warfare platform.
