Very cool! Easily my favorite "Century Series" fighter. Here she is in flight.

"Cruising gracefully, a pair of F-101B’s of the 18th Fighter Interceptor Squadron show their sleek lines to admirers below. 58-0324 is now on display at Palmdale Airport, CA. 58-0339 was less fortunate and was chopped to pieces in the 1980s." https://thejivebombers.com/2019/04/14/f-101-voodoos-1966/

Thanks gents.  Here's another photo I have of her, in the colors of what I think must have been her last assignment - the Oregon ANG.  This is from a slide I bought on eBay...  

 

This is the same scheme as the diecast model posted earlier in this thread :)

Hi Group,

 

I wanted to share another update with you on my Voodoo panel.  I'm down to looking for only 2 instruments now - one more fuel flow gauge and the Command Mach indicator...

Also over the weekend, I found a small piece of this panel on eBay, something I thought would be impossible to find.  It goes on the weapons panel:

I don't have it yet but was too excited about it not to share :)  Here's a photo from the NMUSAF Museum's Voodoo so you can see where it is going to go on my panel, sorry for the poor quality capture but you get the idea:

Thanks for looking!

Well I’m only short one instrument now as I was able to locate another fuel flow gauge with the help of a fellow collector recently!

 

Still missing the Command Mach gauge…

This is starting to remind me of that Johhny Cash song where he builds a Caddilac. At the rate you're going you should have the entire plane in a few years.

Wonder what specifically makes the Command Mach gauge so difficult to collect... 

 

I'd sure like to know that as well!!!
