Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Die-cast Model

Convair F-106A Delta Dart – 59-0141, 318th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron, McChord Air Force Base, Washington, 1983

1:72 Scale.  Length: 11.75".  Wingspan: 6.4"

In October 1960 Convair completed the 332nd F-106 Delta Dart #59-0141. In February 1961 the aircraft was assigned to the 456th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron at Castle AFB in California. On April 24, 1963 #59-0141 was transferred to the 498th FIS/325th FW, McChord AFB, Washington and three years later it was assigned to the 318th FIS also at McChord. Except for a short stay with the 48th FIS, 59-0141 remained with the 318th FIS until November 1983, when it was sent to Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona for storage and its eventual conversion to a QF-106 drone. On November 6, 1992 the aircraft was destroyed by a Stinger Missile.

The F-106 Delta Dart was a supersonic all-weather interceptor aircraft used by the US Air Force from the 1960s to the 1980s. Its primary mission was the defense of the United States from an invasion by Soviet bombers. The F-106 began as an advanced variant of the F102 Delta Dagger but, it featured so many modifications and design changes that it became a new aircraft with its own designation. The F-106 was similar to the F-102 in that it had a virtually identical wing, was designed without a gun or provision to carry bombs, and carried air-to-air guided missiles in an internal weapons bay for streamlined supersonic flight.

First flown on December 26, 1956, the F-106 entered service with the USAF in June 1959. The F-106A as well as the F-106B two-seat trainer served with USAF and Air National Guard units until 1988 in the continental USA, Alaska and Iceland, as well as brief periods in Germany and South Korea. Although contemplated for use in the Vietnam War, the F-106 never saw combat nor was it exported to foreign customers. The aircraft was commonly referred to as the “Six”.
