    Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series HA3113 F-102 Delta Dagger 61210, 526th FIS, Ramstein AB, Germany 1963 The Convair F-102 Delta Dagger was designed to be an interceptor aircraft and act as the core of USAF air defenses in the late 1950s. The F-102 first appeared in service in 1956 with the task to intercept Soviet bombers. The official name for the F-102 was "Delta Dagger" but the most common term used was "Deuce". There was 889 F-102As manufactured when production ended in September 1958. From 1950 until August 1954 the 526th TIS was known as the 526th Fighter-Bomber Squadron. In 1954, along with the re-designation the 526th FIS mission also changed to air defense of central Europe flying the all-weather, rocket carrying F-86D Sabres. In 1960 the 526th FIS was reassigned to the 86th Air Division at Ramstein AB and equipped with the F-102 which they flew until 1968. F-102 was originally delivered to the 27th FIS in 1962 and was converted to a drone and shot down in 1979. 1/72 scale pre-finished. Die-cast metal with a minimum of plastic. Professionally painted. All markings are pad applied for superb results. Crew figure. Comes with display stand. Landing gear can be displayed up or down. Extremely sought after by collectors.
